Uncover that rare barn find, explore the classifieds, attend an auction or just ask someone who owns a classic car to point you in the right direction so you can invest in one of your own. Now is a perfect time to buy the ride you've always wanted. And if you own a classic car, now is the time to get serious about giving it a partial or complete restoration. At Fabulous Restorations we believe there is no substitute for perfection; good enough just won't do.

Concours d'Elegance 2014 in Amelia Island, Florida started out a little iffy. It rained the entire week leading up to the show. It was unseasonably cool as well, but on Friday, March 7th the tide turned as the Classic Car Gods reigned warm sunshine upon an excellent weekend at one of the hottest events on the "Right Side" of the USA! The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island hosted this year's show that celebrated the 50th year of McLaren, March 6-9, 2014.
Complimentary to the beautiful fairway of The Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort Golf Course was The Festivals of Speed where exotic automobiles, motorcycles and watercraft were on display, Saturday March 8th. George Haddad's Fabulous Restorations entries were stunning enough to walk away with 4 beautiful trophies of various classifications for best in show.
Many car enthusiasts were on hand to talk shop and see the magnificent workmanship of Fabulous Restorations and Fabulous Corvettes, Home of the FC 6 Super Vette.
