“I’ve never, ever stopped restoring cars”
Alcazar’s original business in the hobby, going back to the 1980s, was “Drew Alcazar’s Concours Restorations.” He became renowned throughout the vast enthusiast landscape as one of the best west coast authorities for European sports cars and American muscle.
For nearly fifteen years, Concours Restorations specialized strictly in those destined for the show field. “We didn’t perform oil changes or tire rotations, my shop was custom tailored to hunt down ‘Best In Show’ at the national concours and we did battle down to the bolt head markings, inspection color codes and grass free tire treads!”. Accolades on the podium were routine and countless Best in Class/Show awards followed. Drew retired from restorations when he moved to Scottsdale in 1996 to become the GM of Barrett-Jackson.
Today, Alcazar says, the new RS Collector Automobile Services Restoration Department will do select restorations on a case-by-case basis and may engage partial restorations based on specific needs.” Over eight thousand square feet of highly polished floors, vast work benches, lifts and tools, the equipment amassed over a lifetime, are now housed in what Alcazar calls “his happy place”, indulging once again his true passions for collector car restoration.
