Cars come in all sizes and the Sbarro BMW 328 was a lot of fun to bring back to road ready .  T was almost all there but had not run in years.  It was November and done by Christmas was the request. Ed went to work and the car was soon apart, with the paint on before thanksgiving platner

Mini Mokes – Perhaps not fair to call them small trucks??  But … they were developed for the British Army before they went public.  Two we’ve worked on recently we call the Christmas set.  Both arrived needing service and new tops to be ready for some Moking around come summer.  Done!

Below, a seldom seen stateside Toyota 1969  Toyota 800 P20 Publica P20, a mighty 1973 Toyota Publica  P30 1000 above above right and a tiny but robusto 1976 Datsun-Nissan Sunny 1200 Series rounds out an interesting selection of mini pickups.  We inspected, appraised & serviced to make these trucks roadable for a collector  of small trucks.  Interesting and educational on our end, these machines are nicely constructed and the workhorses of some foreign lands!
