And finally, I arrived at the Restoration shop. 





The shop was closed on Sundays.  So the only pics I could get were from peaking in through the windows.  Looks like there were quite a few projects in the shop in various stages of completion.








This is the upholstery area of the shop.





I see the trunk lid of a '61 Chevrolet Belair on the table, a high-dollar Maserati under the plastic tarp, and a '69 Camaro off to the left.





Not sure what this area of the shop was.  But I see a couple of saws.  Woodworking maybe ?  Don't remember.





The hallway leading back to the offices was lined with old photos and magazine ads. 





I like the old magazine advertisements from back in the day.  Pierce-Arrow, Packard, Lincoln, and Chrysler Imperial were among the finest cars money could buy.





One wall was dedicated to the work done by the shop.  There are a lot of great machines shown here.





And with that, my tour had come to an end.  The facility closed in 2009, but the building still stands housing Big-O-Tires and Nature Girls Health Foods.  I'm glad I got to see Memoryville USA before it closed.

Thanks for reading .  .  .
