[VIDEO] Take a Tour of Classic Recreations Shop Floor


We’ve seen a couple of shop tours from Classic Recreations over the years though it’s always good to see more and luckily enough the guys from JustAboutCars were given a great tour by the CR team last month.

What’s fascinating is probably the amount of donor cars the Classic Recreations guys seem to always have on hand. It gives us that warm and fuzzy feeling inside that someone is getting these cars back on the road and they are not left to rot and be turned into scrap. Check out the video below.

We’re not going to steal MustangDaily’s thunder so head on over there to check out their write up and fantastic pictures.
