Pollock Auto Under New Management After Purchase

by Michael Engard

Pollock Auto Restoration in Pottstown, PA is pleased to announce new management after being acquired by the ownership group of Ragtops & Roadsters, Inc. in Perkasie, PA. Most recently owned and managed by the late Ralph DeStefano, Pollock is the premier restorer of brass era and classic prewar automobiles in eastern PA.

Michael Engard, founder and president of Ragtops & Roadsters purchased Pollock from DeStefano’s estate with the goals of enhancing the quality of both management and client relations for the company. “We look forward to providing a top flight experience for our new and inherited clients,” says Engard. “I think they will see a renewed sense of dedication and professionalism as well as even better, more efficient service, workmanship, and most importantly, results.”

One of the keys to maintaining that level of quality through this transition and beyond is the dedication of current Pollock employees. “We are very excited that a number of the key people from the Pollock organization will stay on and continue their excellent work for this company under our new management.” Engard adds.

A landmark in Pottstown, Pollock Auto Restoration began life as Pollock Auto Showcase, an antique auto museum, in the 1950s. Founded by Bill Pollock, the museum morphed over time into a restoration facility for Classic and Brass Era vehicles as more and more clients sought the expertise of the staff after seeing the vehicles on display.

Ragtops & Roadsters opened in 1990 and has quickly become one of the top restoration facilities for British classics and sports cars in the region.

“Pollock has an exceptional reputation and a fascinating history.” says Engard, “Through this new strategic alliance that we are developing between Ragtops and Pollock, we can enhance the quality and reputation of both organizations by sharing our expertise, combining our resources, and providing the highest quality vehicles and services for all of our clients.” Pollock Auto Restoration is currently taking appointments for restoration and service work.
