Unlike most people, vintage car enthusiasts can see the potential for old jalopies to be restored. They will spare no expense in ordering original parts from abroad or fabricate them and restore the car to its authentic specifications. Tinkering around with the car is all part of the pleasure of owing a vintage car.
Today I had an opportunity to witness professional vintage car restoration at work. If you love old cars but are not mechanically inclined, don't worry. There is still One-Stop Car Cares, the vintage and classic car specialist where Prakash S. Maniam and his team provide professional car restoration services. Thanks to Prakash and his team to let me explore every little corner of his garage and stores. Prakash, who learned repair skills from his father, gained further professional experience and expertise with a two-year stint in Singapore.
In 1990, he started his own garage in Johor Bahru. With a personal passion for Mercedes, he specialised in working on Mercedes Benz. Then he discovered an inclination for restoration work and began to restore vintage and classic cars.
Each restoration job can take up to 12 months. One of his most memorable job is the restoration of 1930 Austin Seven. I would like to share my experience through my lens and Prakash professional skills with all of you out there. One-Stop Car Care is at No. 27, Jalan Selatan 2/1, Kawasan Perindustrian Ringan Pulai, 81300 Skudai, Johor and Prakash mobile number is 016-7722410.
