We love old cars and motorcycles, drive old cars & motorcycles, and know plenty about the proper care of classic vehicles.

We are also part of a large network of national professional organizations, as well as many talented local businesses & vendors, saving our customers time and money.

We believe in word of mouth advertising and want our customers to find our services valuable and our prices fair. Keeping our customers part of the process is essential to us.

We deliver written estimates when desired, which contain a worst case scenario, so there are no surprises. We can take pics or you can stop in to see the work. We will be in touch if costs begin to spiral, and we follow up by delivering a vehicle that is safe & repaired correctly - on time, every time.

Preserving History

I started Presto Resto because I love old cars, motorcycles, antiques, and the stories they bring.  My love of preserving history  began at a young age and I have honed my patience, talent and customer service skills to see a challenging job through to successful completion.

I've worked as an master automotive technician, owned a successful driver education school, began riding motorcycles at the age of five, and have over 25 years experience working on American muscle, classic British sports cars and German special interest vehicles. From paint, to engine work, major rust repair, interior and top restorations, electrical diagnosis and upgrades, there is not much I won't do.

If you share that love for history and want to preserve something of great value, you need an honest and professional person on the job. Look no further, I would love the chance to help maintain your vintage ride!

Thank You!

Jesse C. Merrill
