Join your First Settlers friends for a guided tour of FantomWorks, the largest auto restoration shop in the country (in terms of sq ft).  They offer complete services and restoration services to include body, electrical, upholstery and paint.  This is a "must-do" event if you love classic cars and have any interest in the business and art of restoration.  They have, on average, 85 cars in the facility at any one time.  Be ready to be immersed in "automotive restoration nirvana".

In addition to what is going on inside the building, the building itself is a work of art from a pre-war era and a testimonial to the artisanship of the builders.  Built in 1941 as a linen cleaning facility, this triple layer brick and free-span steel girder building is 52,000 square feet on the bottom floor alone.  This historic building is absolutely amazing inside and out.  It is being restored to its former glory including restoring the wood roof,  repainting the steel girders, and bringing the bricks back to their original look.

Date:  Saturday July 26th
Time: 10am to approx. 12pm (please gather a little early to be ready to start the tour at 10)
