That changed about 5 or 6 years ago and here is that brief story to help understand where I come from now. At many of the Concours shows I judge there are a "very few" times when a fellow judge would come up and say to me "you have to see that 19 (-- marque car) and the quality of restoration." When more than one or two judges mention the same car at the same show I always make it a point to definitely see and go over that car. This had interestingly happened at two different Concours with two different cars in a few months period. In looking at each of the two cars at different I took notice that both cars were restored at the same shop and both cars won their "very competitive" class. I did notice it was not a West Coast shop or one of the very well-known shops that excel for their perfection and level of restorations but a shop about 50 miles from my home. A few months later I made it a point to go down to the restoration facility and that is when I first met Gerek Brodfuehrer. A nice visit, an accommodating person plus I was able to see some of his other work ranging from a 1940's production car, to a very rare Ferrari and a few other exotic cars. I was certainly impressed as he was the manager of the shop and the lead craftsperson.
Currently an older restoration car I own (a Hudson Italia) is at his shop, not for any specific large work (although I would if needed), but he has a client whom recently bought an Hudson Italia (one of 25 made) which was disassembled and currently Gereks shop is restoring it. I fully trust Gerek with my car, even to remove parts he has to make, and I have no doubt that his client’s car will be perfect. I think this points to my trust in him.
In summary Gerek is an excellent craftsperson and a very honest individual. He is very concerned with his client’s cars, does the necessary research as to making the car correct and authentic and is very attentive to detail, plus is approachable, gracious, and will work with the owner. I and others have always found him to be upfront, understanding and fair. His rates are very reasonable especially for quality of work he and his shop offer and I would say his work will most likely exceed expectations.
