Tom Griffith - Wisconsin Vintage Motors, LLC - Verona, Wisconsin

"Over the past 4 years, Jim has worked on many of my vintage cars; classics from the teens, 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Whether a simple repair, modification or complete frame off restoration, Jim is the only one I would trust with my vehicles. Over the next year, we will tackle a my latest purchases: 1930 Rolls Royce, 1936 SS Jaguar, 1953 Jaguar XK120, 1916 Staver Speedster, 1913 Little Speedster, 1923 Reo Speed Wagon and finish up a ground-up resto on a 1949 Triumph Roadster. Just completed were a 1931 Oakland and a 1950 Lea Francis 2-1/2 Liter Sports. I can’t imagine entrusting anyone else but Jim Bach."

"Sarah and I bought our 1960 Porsche in 1974. We sold our good car, a Volvo, to raise the $1800 asking price. The engine was in our town, the body in a barn in Polo, IL. It's been a member of the family ever since. We enjoyed it and preserved it until the rust bubbles on the door bottoms started getting very noticeable. Fortunately while on a 356 outing I met Jim Bach at a tour of his shop. I really liked his approach and was willing to do a careful restoration while preserving as much as of the original as was feasible. The end results were fantastic. The paint /body work and knowledgeable attention to detail brought the 356 back to show standards. Bach Racecraft is an excellent value for such knowledgeable and quality work."

"I have known Jim Bach for nearly fifteen years. My introduction came in 1995 when I was having my classic sports car restored at Stauffer Classics. Jim was the project manager and my second contact person behind George. The car came out perfectly. Jim still does work for George and I, but now it is through Bach Racecraft, Jim’s full service restoration facility. And the work is still perfect.

"Since 2005, BRC has restored three more classics for me. In each instance, the attention to detail and historical correctness was impeccable. His knowledge of mechanics, aluminum metalworking, and paint is superb. Furthermore, his network connections are international. No one is more connected or respected in the automotive restoration business than Jim and Bach Racecraft. As far as I’m concerned, there isn’t a better facility for precision restoration anywhere. Whether it’s a vintage racer, classic muscle, resto-mod, or imported exotic, I suggest you contact Jim Bach at Bach Racecraft. You will be thoroughly satisfied with the results."

"I met Jim Bach at Road America when he was doing track support on Chevrons and Porsches. After an unfortunate shunt in my B8, I started planning a thorough reconstruction. I had planned to do it myself, but a move to California made that impossible. I chose Jim for his talent and confidence and it shows in the finished product. Everyone who sees the car comments on its beauty and attention to detail. Jim's racing experience and industry contacts made the car correct, fast and easy to maintain."
