Employment Opportunity

VINTAGE SPORTS CAR INC is looking for someone to complement our team.

We are known to do excellent work on old cars, many of them are no longer as per original specs. Therefore I am looking for some one who has a good insight of how a car works and who is open minded to some times not so brilliant solutions of mechanics that have worked on the car in the past.

You must be familiar with the words and functions of a Carburetter, point ignition system and things like a friction shock absorbers.

Be prepared to do  something else every single day.  One day you may be working on an exhaust the next day you may be rebuilding a clutch or transmission. The day after you may be trying to get a trafficator to work.

The man or woman I am looking for must fit in the existing team and must be able to deliver work to our high standards.

Fabricating, welding and engine build skills are a premium.

If you are motivated and think you will fit our team, contact me at or call 1 815 337 4001.
