Event date: 11 May 2021
As a new member of BMWDCM I was looking forward to attending my first event which just happened to be the monthly meeting to be held at Creative Custom Cars in Dromana. Arriving just in time for the start of the evening and making my way into the welcoming foyer at Creative Custom Cars, I had the chance to meet a couple of other members before Alan How the owner of Creative Custom Cars welcomed our club to his workshop.
As Alan began to give an overview of the business operations I quickly realised this was no average workshop, I could see into operating theatre from the foyer where there was many interesting cars.
It just so happened that on this evening there was 2 BMW's in his workshop undergoing complete nut and bolt no expense spared restorations one was a BMW M3 E30 and a 3.0 CSL which was the star of the show and had just been completed.
Alan explained when they carry out restorations that are to be returned to original specs if they don't have all the details supplied by the customer they then carry out extensive research to ensure originality. It was great to see the attention to detail on the cars amazing paint jobs and bodywork thanks to the in house fabrication and paint shop.
Creative Customs can also restore a part off your car when you not requiring a full restoration.
The photo of the 3.0CSL does not do it justice this car really looked amazing.
Thanks to Alan for having us at his workshop and hopefully we can visit it again in the future it really was a very interesting evening.
