I have been servicing my 02 vette with D&M since 2003. They have also assisted me in customizing the car in every manner that I wanted to do. They offer good approaches/solutions and they stand behind their work.

I purchased a 67 Camaro from them. They have worked well with me to "freshen" and restore aspects of the car. I have been very pleased with the service and the manner in which everyone treats me and my family.

I recently purchased a second car, a 61 Vette, from D&M. The exterior and interior were nearly perfect. The engine compartment needed some cosmetics done. When the work was started, a few issues were noted by the service dept that were material, but nothing that would have been known unless the engine was taken apart. Before they started the work, they discussed the findings and the work that should be done. I was provided a detailed estimate. The work was done in a timely manner and was completed below the estimate. They even did some cosmetic work for which I was not charged. The engine and the compartment look almost factory new! These guys take pride in their work and want to you to be totally satisfied.

If you get involved with collector muscle and pony cars, you need to recognize that funds will need to be invested over time whether for restoration or to keep them running smoothly. The key is identifying your needs and desires for the cars and working with people who know the cars and who can work with you to set expectations.

This is my response to Matthew and his 1976 Corvette. I invite anyone who is interested in the facts to stop by my shop and look at the insurance estimate on this repair. I will also show you the condition of the old bumper cover on Matthew's car.

I challenge Matthew to publish his full name, address and phone number in this review. Then he can invite anyone interested in the facts to look at his car. You can look at our work and compare it to the condition of the rest of the car.

I asked the insurance company to reinspect this car and evaluate our workmansip. Matthew refused the reinspection.

D&M Corvette recongnized the error that Pete had made to my car and decided to fix it (Updated 10/16/2008)
I went to D&M for body work on my 76' Stingray. I was told they would blend the front to match the paint. Then I was told they said if it was needed they would....but originallly they explained that the cost of blending was built into the estimate. So after the Body Manager explained how he owned his own body shop and only worked on porshe and ferrari and that these cars(corvettes) are cheap and you can not get a good match unless I fork over another 1,500. I spoke with Mr. Glass the owner he was nice at first until he realized the solution would cost him some time and labor to fix.. then he blew off my 67 year old father off by having promised to fix the car at no cost to us. When my 67 year old father came in to drop the car off at the time Mr. Glass told my Dad to be there he had to deal with Pete who was the original problem that Mr. Glass promised would not be there and that he could deal with Ken...Pete went on his same act telling my Dad that the insurance company was coming into inspect the job and they would determine what work would be done. My Dad asked to speak with Mr. Glass...he was told by pete that he was no where to be found...needless to say Mr. Glass would not return our calls..I ended up just taking my car and going home. Will never go back again

It's a small place but a very nice showroom with vintage Corvettes for sale and made it into a theme with collectors gas pumps and other props. Parking is very small and it's right off the main road (Ogden Rd.). They also have a show every year that draws all different Corvette owners to show their Vettes at their parking lot. It's a great show and draws many people to visit their showrooms and a great time to be had to meet new people and enjoy each other's cars. Definately a must see if you are looking for a specific Corvette.
