I brought my 1954 Buick special to Dorsett Speed Shop for complete restoration. Daniel did an incredible job for an excellent rate. I'm extremely happy with the service I got from Dorset Speed Shop. The car was purchased by my Grandfather from Niles in Santa Rosa in 1954. I wouldn't trust another shop to work on my Buick then Dorsett Speed Shop.Tim W., Santa Rosa, CA
