Classic car restoration master Bill Holton has carried a vision for most of his life, since his apprenticeship over 45 years ago in the family auto body business in Vale, Oregon: to build the perfect auto restoration shop. The classic auto restoration facilities at Holton Secret Lab are the realization of that vision. Every decision about how to create the auto restoration shop was made to allow access to every angle of a project car. Lighting was placed at the perfect heights and angles to illuminate each detail and a custom built rotisserie reveals everything that would need to be accessed.
It's all about detail. Our classic car restoration facilities have a nostalgic service station frontage with several old gas pumps - also restored by Holton Secret Lab with impeccable detail.
