Cadillac Restoration in Chicago Area
« on: October 12, 2012, 06:56:23 PM »
I'm considering purchasing a 1962 Eldorado and am looking for a good restoration shop in the Chicago area that has experiance restoring Cadillacs. Any recommendations? Thanks

I was at the street rod nationals in Louisville KY this summer and I met Tom Stowe from Stowe Autobody in Lockport Il.  815-838-7084

He had a gorgeous 1972 or 73 Eldorado convertible he had redone at the shop.  He was promoting his soda blasting and his shop.

I've never been, just spoke and saw the Eldo at the show.

John:

I do not know where in Chicago you are located, but the Dorman Garage is located in Northwest Indiana - La Porte, Indiana to be exact.  La Porte is about an hour drive from downtown Chicago.  The Dorman Garage did an excellent job on a member of the Indiana Region's car and this member now has another car at Dormans.

The link to their website is:  http://www.dormangarage.com/

And, after you purchase your car, join the CLC and the West of the Lake (Chicago Region) of the CLC where you will meet a great group of people.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm checking out a 62 Eldorado in Houston this coming Weds. I'll check out both shops.
