Member George B took his 2015 Stingray there to have his rear Michelin Pilot EMT (run-flat) patched.  This is not normally done as it negates the “Z” rating of the tire but they said they do it all the time.  This after visiting another local tire “stealer” who refused to patch it but was more than willing to sell me a brand new tire for $300+.  Easy decision, now I just have to keep it under 170 MPH to be safe.

COMMUNITY COLLISION of Leesburg
105 W. Magnolia Street
Leesburg, FL 34748
352-787-8077
847-209-4341
This recently opened collision center in Leesburg is, without a doubt, a premier facility for central Florida.  New building, new equipment, years of experience, and a locally owned and operated business.  Mr. Robert Mangiamele manages this unique operation.  I have personally met with Rob who gave me a guided tour and an overview of his business philosophy.  Rob opened just recently but brings to this operation years of experience.  He has installed his own business philosophy which is immediately evident when you walk through the front door.  The building is a former SIMON SEED SUPPLY and Bob went to great lengths to maintain the look and feel of the original which, considering the condition at the time, was a very difficult task.  Walls were leaning and crumbling, the slab was unsteady and a total rebuild was required.  As you can see from the pictures, this is spectacular.  Equipment is still arriving but they're open for business with the latest, most advanced state-of-the-art equipment in central Florida.  Rob specifically mentioned that they have vast experience in fiberglass repair and Corvette paint matching.

Final Touch Auto Body & Paint
748 Carpenter Ave
Leesburg, FL 34748
352-396-1018

2020: Member George Borke took a hit on the front bumber/nose of his 2014 LimeRockGreen roadster.  Lime Rock Green is a very dark metallic green which I didn't think they'd match but when I picked up the car I could see absolutely no difference between the bumper and the rest of the car.  Excellent work. I highly recommend them.  A family owned and operated business. 

2020:  Villager Stephen Eddy - Elias & his wife were great to deal with. The repairs were completed in a timely fashion and without requiring any additional funds over what the insurance company allowed. I would use them in the future.

2019: Member Beverly Borke had a rear bumper dent on he BMW M240i removed after getting 3 other estimates, all of which were significantly MORE THAN that which Final Touch quoted.  About 3 months after the repair the spot turned a bit yellow.  Called them and was told to bring it in immediately and they'd make it right.  A year later spot is undetectable. 

2017: Member Rudy Neustadter had “paint match” issue with the top of his recently purchased 1961 Fawn Beige C1, it didn’t quite match the body of the car.  Elias was able to not only match it perfectly but made it look better

As you know, I am very meticulous and he did the red convertible.

He washes it, clays it and then does a fantastic job with the wax. It is supposed to last a year, but I still add more on my own. I highly recommend him. He is very reliable and knowledgeable. He has confirmed he can handle our club and he assured us he would not let us down and actually does several of our members.  He also details the dealership next door.  Recommended by Tom & Pam Travaglio, owners of a 1988 White Coupe & a 2001 Red Roadster.  (Added 10/2014)

sPENCER'S TOWING

1312 N 14th St, Leesburg, FL 34748
(352) 552-1532
Spencer Towing is a local, family owned and operated roadside assistance and towing company. We offer jump start, tire change, fuel delivery, unlock service and flat bed towing.
C5's & C6's are inclined to suddenly, for no apparent reason, have the transmission cable break rendering the car immobile and useless.  Can't go forward, can't back up, can't even move the car because it's in PARK.  WTF do you do now?????

John Cross, a VVCC member, recently experienced this and called Spencer's based upon a recommendation by our club sponsor, NAHAS CHEVROLET.  John called them and was very pleased with the service even with his car on an incline in his driveway and the necessity for the service person to get under the car and release the tranny pawl. This seems to be a common occurrence with a lot of Vettes. They brought the car to Nahas and all is well…expensive fix….but well.
This "family business" is worth calling if AND when you need a tow.  They're open till MIDNIGHT on Saturdays too.

Member Ron Cullum, Nov-2020: 
When I first  received my C8 HTC, I immediately brought it  to Total Recon to have it ceramic coated and of course it looked beautiful when it came out. As a part of the work they also did the brake calipers and did an off-wheel coating on the wheels also.  A task you often have to ask to be done and then have to pay extra for.  Not here, it was part of what they do.

But that is not the real reason I'm recommending.  My wife brought me to the shop in her 2011 Lexus (almost 10 year old car) with just under 200,000 miles on it.  While we did take good care of it, nonetheless it clearly showed its age, especially on the leather seats which were dirty and had some scratches on them.  Upon seeing the before/after pictures on Total Recon's web site, I asked if they could fix this car up, not really knowing what I was asking for.  They said "yes" and I took this car in for a total reconditioning.  I, and everyone I have shown the car to afterwards are totally amazed.  It truly looks like it came right off the show room floor like when we bought it.
