From my first meeting with Jeff Pate, I was impressed with the depth of his knowledge and wide range of experience in the classic car business.He carefully listens to each customer’s desires and makes sound recommendations that are tailored to their car and budget constraints. He is honest and realistic about every step of the restoration process, keeps the customer informed of the progress while encouraging them to visit and appreciate the craftsmanship demonstrated by his staff.For my 1966 Thunderbird Convertible, the goal was to return the car to being a safe, reliable driver that was presentable, but not a trailer queen that had to stay locked up as a museum piece. Jeff went through the entire car and provided a list of the items that needed to be replaced for safety as well as certain upgrades for better drivability and comfort.We agreed on a program that was done in stages over eight months, beginning with all necessary mechanical restoration and completed with a four coat refinishing process that started from bare steel. He understood that I enjoyed hands on involvement with certain parts of the restoration and knew my limits in critical areas that I gladly turned over to Classic Cars.At every step of the way, my expectations have been exceeded – Jeff and his staff go the extra mile and take care of the details that matter. They are all proud of their work and treat the cars as they would their own.
I bought a '68 Mustang a few years ago. In that time, I have needed some help on at least two occasions. After a lousy experience each time of not getting what I wanted or what I expected, I was apprehensive when I needed help again. I called a few shops, but none gave me any confidence in their ability until I spoke with Jeff and the guys at Classic Cars of Houston. I received regular updates and progress reports from both Jeff and Bailey, both of whom are very professional.Even in the initial conversation on the phone, Jeff seemed to understand the nature of the problem. After he took a look at the car, he was able to explain the issues and the solutions that were needed. He kept me updated, on time, and (most important) on budget. I didn't have any surprises, except that the car was better than I thought it would be when I picked it up. I highly recommend them, and will certainly use them again in the future. Thanks again for everything.
