Acton, Massachusetts – Last month, the Haartz Corporation was awarded The Motoring Legacy Award by the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA). Haartz was the original soft-top material supplier for many vehicles from the early 1900s and continues to support these vehicles with the company’s current product lineup as well as some specialty materials.
“This is a very significant award in the collector car space and especially within the Classic Car Club of America,” said Jay Quail, executive director of the Classic Car Club of America. “It is critical, in this day of reproductions and inferior products, that we recognize and award the quality and high standards of manufacture that the Haartz products represent. We judge our vehicles on authenticity and the challenge to return to the same level that they were originally delivered to the customer. Haartz fabric ensures the quality and attention to detail that was prevalent during the classic era of car manufacture. “
“Among folks in the really-old car fraternity, the Haartz name is synonymous with great cloth convertible topping. We work to promote accuracy in material as part of the car restoration process,” said CEO Eric Haartz, who was in attendance to accept the award on behalf of the Haartz Corporation. “I enjoyed telling the CCCA members present about the dedication of production and engineering people who have a hand in this work.”
Aside from specialty materials, the Haartz Stayfast, Twillfast and some vinyl materials largely support the vintage car segment.
The Motoring Legacy Award is presented to individuals and to companies which demonstrate a high level of commitment to ensure that preserved classic cars remain in motoring condition, as originally designed.
