About 4 months ago i got an email from a friend in Hawaii asking if i knew of a shop that could restore his Allard. I went down to Limeworks and discussed the project with Steve the owner of Limewroks. He then told me of his connection with the Allard family in England. "Bingo" i knew that Limeworks was the choice. I emailed bac k the info and after many emails Limeworks was chosen to do the job. Tickets were sent to fly over to Oahu for inspection and packing, but due to an unexpected illness, Steve had to make the trip without me. I arranged for Steve to stay at my friends place while there. Steve got everything crated up and returned back to the mainland to wait for the arrival of the project. Several weeks later the Allard arrived. Only 83 of these were built and who knows how many survive. Its powered by a early Cadillac with 6x2's atop a log manifold. The car is destined to be raced at Laguna Seca in the historical class when finished. So heres the start of the "adventure" it now rests at Steves shop awaiting the attention the Limeworks crew will give it in the months to follow. My involvement will be to "monitor" the work on a weekly basis for the owner and send him pics. I will be doing updates as work progresses.
