DVD’s are out – Streaming Media is in!

The classic Collector Car Restoration Videos Series is now available via steaming media.


All 9 hours of the original videos has been broken out into 6 chapters containing a total of 138 segments.

Hello and welcome to the new Carestoration.com website. This site was originally setup, and still exists to promote the Collector Car Restoration Video Library. The Restoration Series was conceived back in the 1990’s by Fred and Ray Vagedes upon their retirement after over 30 years of professional restoration experience. As the former owners of "The Antique Auto Shop" in Elsmere, Kentucky, they restored too many collector cars to count, many of which became national first place trophy winners. Their desire – to share as much as they could with hobbyists who loved their cars but could not afford to have their cars professionally restored. The approximately 8 hours of videos in the Collector Car Restoration Video Library were designed to impart useful restoration tips, tricks and methods taken from the world of professional restorers and modified to fit the needs and budgets of the do-it-yourself hobbyist.


Over the years some methods and resources have changed but the basic concepts remain timeless. Since these videos were originally released  we have reacted to the ever changing distribution technology from VHS to DVD and now to streaming video and lowing the cost along the way. The videos are still the originals and we look forward to provide a forum for Car Restoration Hobbyists to provide feedback to the community on updated resources or methodologies.


All of the videos have been converted for streaming and edited into short segments by topic and will be available shortly.

Just $19.95 for the Entire 9 hour series!
