A NOTE FROM BRENT
When I started Performance Restoration back in 1981, I set out to build a
business that would provide the discriminating auto owner the finest auto
body repair backed with exceptional quality and value. At Performance
Restoration your vehicle will be repaired by the best craftsmen in the
collision industry, using the most modern equipment available.
Our commitment to quality does not stop with the automobiles we repair or to
the people who repair them: it also applies to the outstanding customer
service. Service that makes us proud.
Brent chooses only the most experienced and motivated personnel. His
people are all into cars and trucks. He feels that people who enjoy working on
cars for a hobby enjoy their job and will do better at it. This philosophy has
certainly paid off. The work that comes out of Performance Restorations is
second to none.
Brent is a certified car nut, in fact, he was told by his mother that his very first
word was car! At the age of 15 he had prepped and painted his first car.
Graduating High School in 1976, he immediately started working full time in a
body shop. Continuing education at The College of Lake County in the
evenings for several years. Eventually, he taught Auto Body at The College of
Lake County for 2 years while also working full time as a body man. Brent left
the teaching job to start a part time business restoring cars. While the full
time career went to management positions, the part time business developed
into a loyal following and so much work that he had to do it full time. In 1988,
Performance Restorations was opened and is now in its 17th year. Brent is a
member of ABAA, NHRA, IHRA, ISCA,SCCA,NASA. He has judged ISCA
Shows, so he knows what to look for. He has built many successful drag and
show cars in his life and currently owns the Quickest and Fastest Street
Legal Pro-Street Corvette in the Country. This car is capable of running low 7
second ET's at well over 180 m.p.h. in the 1/4 mile. On top of that, this car is
an ISCA Show Champion. Yes, Brent loves what he's doing.
