Fourteen classic cars.


Twelve weeks of restoration.


Four dealership Service Teams competing to repair.


One charity receiving auction proceeds.

 
The Restoration Race Is On!

John Hiester has bought 14 classic cars to see which dealership Service Team can perform the best restoration. Whichever classic increases the most in value, we will auction it off and donate all proceeds to a charity of the winning team's choice!

Each Hiester Automotive Group dealership has received 3 to 4 vehicles, and they have twelve weeks to restore these past beauties. Tune in to see their plans, progress and final restorations!
