I’ve seen some of Carr’s work in person. Always outstanding workmanship at the highest levels, and just not Corvette. Carr has an amazing shop and some very talented people. I had Carr’s shop rebuild the original transmission and engine from my 65 FI coupe after some other shops did them with less than good results. I reinstalled both and have been driving the car without any issues for several years thanks to Carr. If I ever restore or perhaps Resto mod my 65 I’ll go see Carr, no one better around here.

I spoke to him about painting mine and doing the bodywork. He was very nice and offered to stop by and look at the car after work.

Carr always brings two or three of his cars (display only) to the Lone Star Regional in Frisco, Texas. Impeccable workmanship and a nicer guy you'd have a hard time finding. I've recommended his shop to several folks over the years...never a disappointment.
