Who We Are

I’m Joe Skrip. My passion is bringing collector cars back to life with my own two hands. I call it Continuing The Tradition. Mine as well as yours. My family has been in the car restoration business my whole life, Skrip’s Autobody opened in 1978. We became collision experts long ago thanks to my father Bob; always bringing the newest technology to our ever growing shop. Our skilled craftsmanship brought us collector cars from time to time, where we could broaden our skills to the exacting standards of the restoration world. As restorations became a larger part of our business the decision was made to open a location specifically-designed to handle the demanding requirements of classic restorations, far away from the hustle and bustle of collision work and insurance company demands. Old Soul Restoration was born.

I’ve been described as an Old Soul myself, so the name is very fitting. I think like a more mature individual. I have a passion for the old ways and old world craftsmanship. The best part is that I use my own two hands to mold the quality back into your prized automobiles. “I’m not just a straight and shiny guy, if it’s got an engine and a chassis I want to see it!” No project is too small or too big. If you are looking for quality work for your collector car, give me a call. Let me get my two hands on your project.
