Quite by chance an American woman passed by our Website and let us a brief message. Holly SOTTILE is part of a family passionate of ‘Vette. In the 70’s her father-in-law Bob SOTTILE used to tinker everything that had 4 wheels and an engine. Since then his hobby became a real family business that quickly specialized in the refurbishment and selling of Corvette C3. Now the business is running stronger than ever as Bob dragged his son RJ in the adventure.
