Looking at the company’s success today, it is hard to imagine that the company experienced terrible devastation twice over.

The company was winding up construction and getting back to normal when, in November 2018, a tornado ripped through the company’s premises, and Country Classic Cars, L.L.C. suffered the most damage. At the time of the storm, there were 210 cars in the facility. Thankfully, no workers or clients were injured. Again, the company rebuilt.

Some of the cars are restored to almost factory quality, while cars that need some work are available to fellow classic car restorers.
