      We don’t know the history of this car. If he took a perfectly good Maserati and butchered it with customization, than yeah, I agree with the hate. But he mentioned this was the result of 20 years of restoration. For all we know, the engine was blown, and the car was left to rot in the elements for 30+ years. Sourcing a period correct Maserati engine may have unobtainable. Either due to cost, or limited sources. Limited production, 20 years would put this at 1997. eBay really wasn’t as useful in the hobby as it is today, and they might’ve not even had internet access. Hopefully they kept the block, but it’s also possible that they couldn’t find anyone willing to work on it. Remember, not everyone can do everything themselves. They may have tried to outsource labor, and local shops were too afraid of it.

      The paint/body, given this hypothetical scenario, means that it would need a respray. We don’t know if they tried to source the right color, or simply felt that whatever was original wasn’t to their liking, and chose something they preferred, knowing that it can always be repainted something else in the future, since the original paint was beyond saving.

      Instead of bashing the man and his father for butchering a classic, we might should be thanking him for resurrecting something which, by now, might’ve been too far gone to save. This car not only was saved from being a potential junker, decaying back into its original natural elements, but essentially built in such a way that when a future collector gets their hands on it, they have the ability to see to it that this gets as much concourse treatment as it deserves. A proper restorer would love to have this car, not whatever heap the potential basket case originally was when they got it in the 90s.

    what I love about Dennis is he is a oddball guy who shows odd cars. He looks like he loves this job as well.

    I’m from Northern NJ and never heard about this place. Figured next time I take a trip to Atlantic City, I would stop by. I Googled it and it says its permanently closed! Seems sad
