We’re committed to auto repair and to serving you with quality and value. Bring your car in today for an inspection, and see what our commitment to quality is all about! We may not be related, but you’ll feel like we’re family.

Historically repairs of older vehicles were accomplished by the average backyard mechanic. More recently with the move in the auto industry to more complex vehicles the average car owner has lost the ability to properly take care of their cars. Most new technologists in the auto industry learn very little about the old technology that antique and vintage cars were made with. It's in this gap that Southern Ontario Auto Restore will thrive as there are many vintage car owners out there with very few options to have work done to their vehicles..
