POLLOCK AUTO RESTORATION REVIVAL

Pollock Auto Restoration is a landmark in Pottstown, Pa. This business traces its roots to the 1950s. Bill Pollock was a man who truly loved antique cars and knew a great deal about automotive history and the hobby surrounding it. He owned a museum called Pollock Auto Showcase. Visitors often asked for restoration advice. After Bill’s car collection was sold, Ralph DeStefano purchased the facility. In 2008, Michael Engard purchased the business from the DeStefano estate. Engard relies on a number of key people from the Pollock organization. Dave Hutchinson is operations manager. Barbara Plant serves as manager of operations. John Coine and B. John Shiben — known as “the 2 Johns” — are talented restorers who spent many years working at the company. Other members of the staff include Mike Davidheiser, Curtis Bohn, James Watters, Matt Delross, Dorean Custodia and Chris Williams. Their bios can be found at http://www.pollockauto.com/aboutus.html. Mike Engard is seeking photos and personal recollections of cars, people and the events connected to the history of Pollock Auto Showcase over the years. He wants to display any materials he gets at the shop and on the shop’s Website www.pollockauto.com.
