Our team continues to meet and discuss how we are going to move ahead with the COVID-19 outbreak. Per California law, we have decided to remain open for business to serve our valued customers.

After 38 Years Corvette Crew Chief Retires


Corvette Racing crew chief Dan Binks has decided it was time to retire from the General Motors factory team after 38 years. He first joined the Pratt & Miller crew in 2002 and has been instrumental in the team’s success.

According to Racer, Binks helped Corvette Racing reduce its pit stop times considerably and helped set “new standards for success by an American factory team” on the global motorsports stage.

Binks will remain in the automotive industry in a way, with plans to run an automotive performance and restorations shop in his retirement. He will also continue to work to support the non-profit Camp Anokijig, a children’s camp in Plymouth, Wisconsin that he went to as a boy. Corvette Racing has held fundraisers for the camp in the past and raised more than $25,000 for the non-profit at last year’s IMSA round at Road America..

We also know that with the values of documented, award-winning examples in the six-figure stratosphere, these beasts tend to be out of reach for the average Corvette buyer.  So, what happens when you decide to build an awesome, correct looking, but not #’s matching example to drive and enjoy?  You get what is presented here!  A beautifully restored ’67 that you could drive anywhere and have a real blast doing it!

Mike Thumbs up

What Mike likes about this Mustang:

“Over the years we have had fun polluting the showroom floor with these fun-spirited driving Ford Mustangs!

Not so true we enjoy our brethren of the big three and have fun with these high-performance Ford products. This car belongs to a good friend and client from Northern California who bought this car new and has enjoyed every mile in it. When he decided it was time to sell, I usually get the phone call! This car will be priced to sell, and you can start enjoying it from the moment you receive it in your driveway!

So, let’s get it on the truck heading your way enjoy!”

Check out our great financing options.

Happy Throttling!
