Classic Car Restoration\Repair in San Bernardino\Riverside

Thought I would ask real quick if anyone had experience with classic car repair\restore shops in San Bernadino\Riverside area (SoCal). Im getting my CS a throrough inspection to see what may need to be addressed further down the line. The shops Im seeing right now are pretty high end (not that CS isnt).

Previous owner did a great job keeping it great condition but still not ready for any long hauls yet. Any feedback appreciated!

Cool thanks!

Gabe's in Yucaipa turned out to be pretty solid. They has a Barracuda they have in pieces, 65 Mustang they are putting anew engine in, Camaro they are doing frame up, and a 70 Cougar that they are doing all new updated front suspension on.

Got a pretty good idea of what I will need to work on my CS...mostly front and rear suspension and the leaf springs are tired. Also will be looking at doing disc brakes kit.
