Welcome to TJ Auto! Raised in the car business, our family collected and restored many antique and classic cars in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area including many Ford Model T and Model A cars, a 1939 Packard V12 limo, 1930 Pierce Arrow sedan, 1925 Franklin Boattail roadster, 1929 Cord L29 Brougham sedan, 1926 Stutz sedan, Porsche 356, Alfa Romeos, a 1960 Jaguar XK 150 roadster, a 1967 Jaguar XKE roadster, 1925 Franklin air cooled boat tailed roadster, a Jordan Playboy roadster, and many dirt track sprint cars including an Ardun powered flathead and a Ford Model B sprint car with Riley overhead valve conversion. I moved to Raleigh in 2000 and in 2005, I opened my own business: T J Auto, Inc where we sold many thousand late model used cars while also restoring antique and classic cars. In 2014, we decided to concentrate solely on buying, selling and servicing antique and classic cars.
We were previously located at 1312 Capital Blvd. for 10 years and in 2015, we moved to a larger location: 1302A Capital Boulevard in Raleigh, NC. We have serviced, repaired and restored many foreign and domestic antique and classic cars, including: many Porsches 356, 911, 912, Karmann Ghias, VW Beetles, Triumphs, Chevrolets, Fords, Jaguars, GM, Chryslers, Studebaker, Fiats, Buicks and other brands including race and track cars. My first car that I worked on was a Jaguar XK150 roadster which my father purchased when I was 14 years old. It did not run and was not drivable. He told me: "If you work on this car and get it running and driving safely, then this will be your car when you turn 16". So with my father's help we restored it and I drove it almost daily when weather permitted (and sometimes when it did not!). See the photo below:
