Lousy weather, great cars, great people.

January 2019

In spite of the pouring rain on Saturday, very few entrants declined to brave the elements at the 28th Cavallino Classic. Opening the weekend on Thursday, the 1958 Ferrari 335 Sport n.0764 was featured as one of three cars chosen for the restoration seminar. After an explanation of the development and history of the car, and the restoration process, the audience was invited to ask questions of their own about the car.

This year, event chairman John Barnes highlighted the big displacement V-12 sport racers from the late 1950s. All three of the surviving 335 Sports were center stage on the putting green at Cavallino.

Back in 2014, this extraordinary 335S participated in the track events and concorso at Cavallino, when it was awarded the Ferrari Spirit Cup. Since that time, the car has been completely and authentically restored to it’s Daytona winning livery, resulting in numerous Best of Show awards.

The 335 Sport of Andreas and Frederike Mohringer won a Platinum Award in their class. And then, among the Testa Rossas, TdFs, SWBs, Californias, Superamericas, etc, went on to be chosen for the "Best in Show" Cavallino Cup.

One Way We Give Back

November 2018

Our drivetrain specialist, Bob Lapane, had forty years of experience before joining our workshop in 2009. Over this past decade with us, he has taken on everything out of the ordinary having to do with transmissions, differentials and unique engine challenges.

Recently, Bob spent two days on the campus of McPherson College offering a hands-on group training session to current students. The focus was on rebuilding the differential of a 1953 Mercedes-Benz 300S, a car we assisted the school in acquiring as a future Pebble Beach Concours project. He also shared his vast store of knowledge with an overview on gears, bearings, and lubricants during two classroom sessions.

This is our second opportunity to pass forward some of our staff's specialized knowledge. Upholsterer Richard Barnes, named one of the "20 Top Restorers" in the October 2017 issue of Sports Car Market, gave an invaluable 2-day upholstery workshop at the school last fall, covering both pre-war and post-war materials, construction and restoration procedures. The McPherson College Automotive Restoration Bachelor's degree program covers the travel expenses, and we supply the paid staff. A rewarding experience for all involved.

“[Paul Russell and Company] is a wondrous place that turns old cars into brand new cars. Inside, it feels like equal parts modern hospital, university library and automotive museum. What it does not feel like is a garage. … The world's most desirable cars are being worked upon — from bare body shells and bare chassis to completed masterpieces returned for tweaking.”
