Restoring a Classic Car On Your Own VS. Hiring The Pros

When trying to figure out whether or not you should hire professionals to restore your classic car for you, it really can boil down to 3 things - time, money, and skills. Let's dive into that a little more.


Restoring a classic car or truck to its former glory can take A LOT of time. It really varies depending on the type of car or truck and the condition it is currently in. That being said, do you realistically have a ton of free time to devote to this? You likely have a full time job, a family you enjoy spending time with, or other responsibilities that may take up most of your time. If that's the case, then you should hire professionals. It can be worth the time saved!


When you buy a classic car or truck you need to be prepared to make an investment. Restoring a classic car to its former glory can be costly BUT it can all be worth it end the end IF you go about this correctly. If you try to restore a classic car yourself, without really knowing what you're doing, you may end up just throwing money away. The possible mistakes you may make can end up costing you MORE money than if you were to just hire a professional classic car restoration team to do it for you.


Restoring a classic car or truck to its FULL former glory is not really something you can just teach yourself how to watching a video tutorial. It takes SKILL. The more experience you have doing this kind of work, the better. So ask yourself, do I really have skills to do this? If not, we're here for you! Call Farm Boy Garage today and let's get that junker turned into a classic!
