"Tim is absolutely the Best!  I have had several vehicles that he has worked on for me through the years and his work has always been top notch.

Body, Paint, you name it he can do it!

What I like the most is that there is no question that when he does a job that it will be done right and he always tries to make sure that it will be at an affordable price. There are no hidden cost. He is always right up front with what is being done to the vehicle and what the price will be.

So if you’re looking for the best, at an affordable price look no further you have found the right man for the job!!!

 Just a side note Tim will also be doing some work on my Classic Mustang and I know that when finished it will look like it did when it rolled off the show room floor in 1965. That is how confident I am in this man’s work!"

"Thank you Timothy for the beautiful paint job you put on my 1965 Mustang. You did an outstanding job and I am thrilled with the results. Your attention to detail is second to none and you are truly a Master at your craft! I have already entered it in numerous shows and have taken Best in Class awards, Best in Show awards and Best Paint in many of them! I've received many compliments on the paint job and have referred all of them to you. Again, I thank you for the time and effort you put into my car. You certainly posses a passion for what you do! Look forward to bringing my next project to you. See you soon!"

​ "Bad things happen to good cars.  A bad thing happened to my 1971 Chevelle convertible's drivers side panel.
Yes, it was bad!!  I took it to Tim Gore and he worked his magic on it.  Not only did he repair the damage and make it look like new again, but he also found other issues that he fixed, as well.  This guy knows exactly what he is doing. PERFECT color match, saved me money on parts, and did all of this at a reasonable price.   Simplify your repairs or restoration project.  Go to Tim Gore --  the one-stop shop."

"​I would like to express how pleased I am with the quality of the paint work that was done on my 2006 HD Sportster. The end result was exactly what I asked for: custom and cool, but in no way “girly”. It's so refreshing to experience the integrity, honesty, and attention to detailed workmanship that your company shows. I highly recommend American Classics Restoration. Thanks Tim and April!"

"I was remodeling my Honda CMX250c into a stylized bobber.   I was real proud of the work and needed a custom paint job to match the classic design. While the modifications made the bike run like a scalded dog; it needed to look the part as well.  American Classic Restorations not only gave me a good price and quality work but helped me pick out styling that complemented the overall feel of the bike. I could not be more pleased and would recommend them to anyone looking for good people who do quality work."

​​​"Cathy and I love the makeover that American Classics Restoration completed right before Cruisin' the Coast on our 1965 Mustang convertible.  This Mustang was very special to me as I had wiped the windshield and changed the oil on it as a teenager working in a filling station back in 1965 in Stilwell OK.  I knew the history of the car but didn't realize the major body restoration that was required.  Since we are in Oklahoma and Tim and April are in Ocean Springs, MS, we were a little apprehensive about having the Mustang done so far away, but knew the quality of worksmanship Tim has produced in the past.  Tim and April kept us up on the progress, even putting pictures on Facebook.  We are extremely happy with the finished product and would definitely have American Classics Restoration do another car for us!  Thank you guys for a great job!!"

As a young boy, at the age of 13, I was introduced to classic automobiles through my father. He had a shop and worked on cars himself and, of course, I got to hang out. This progressed into my teenage years and soon I found myself wanting to work on cars all the time. Then I began to paint, and I was a natural.

Fast forward to the 21st century and I still have the passion for these older relics that need so much care and attention to shine again like when they were new. One of the first cars I had was a 1964 Mercury Comet that my father and I built, painted, and reupholstered. I have done many cars over the years and it’s hard to pick a favorite, but I am partial to the Camaro and Mustang along with the older, rarer type vehicles that you just don’t see a lot of.

I have over 10 years in design engineering, and I love to fabricate anything out of sheet metal and iron. One of my most favorite things to do is to watch a customer’s face light up when they see their pride and joy gleaming in the sun like it was the first time they met; that is what drives me to do the type of work I do and have been doing so now for over 35 years.  I still love every job, and I enjoy meeting all the people who share this same passion for classics that I do.
