2002 Cabrio Targa by Baur undergoing a complete restoration.
I found Matt McGinn and Nate Williams at the front desk immediately upon entering, busily poring over some paperwork or parts catalogues. I chatted with them briefly and they invited me to have a look around the shop, which was humming with activity.
The photos that follow tell only part of the story of today's visit: I knew I was overdue to download my iPhone pics to the iMac, and sure enough, it caught up to me today! I had to do an impromptu photo dump to make room for the pics you see below. I could have taken a lot more, if I had more memory. I will have to plan better for my next visit. Mea culpa. ;)
As I put together this post, there is an old Van Morrison tune running around in my head.... and I don't think it is a coincidence!
This is what greeted me on arrival:
For the most part the pics that follow speak for themselves, needing no commentary from me. But I have interjected a few, when I couldn't help myself. ;)
Wow. A couple of current projects in the main shop area.
700! My understanding, from a brief chat with Dan McGinn, is that this 700 has been rebuilt from a badly damaged or deteriorated condition. Coming along nicely, but lots of work!
I love this!
Cabrio Targa by Baur!
700 Cabrio by Baur! Woo hoo!
Whoa! Here is the Cabrio Targa Restoration! An incredible project which we have posted about in here a while back!
All sorts of projects going on here! ;)
Yeah, that's right! That is a Voll Cabrio by Baur!
2800. Sorry about the poor pic: the trunk was open and high in the air, so I took this one kinda blind.

Another section in the back with numerous projects!
It is always a treat to visit Sports Car Restoration, and once again, I want to reconfirm the immense admiration that I have for the work these guys do. I want to extend my thanks to Matt and Nate ---great to see you guys again!--- for graciously giving me the opportunity to wander about the place, and drink in the scenery! Made my day! Keep up the great work, fellas!
