Bristol auto shop owner John Leether is helping restore a 1967 Camaro RS. The restoration is part of the Advance Auto Parts 4th Annual Restoration Tour where Technet auto shops across America are chosen to restore a 1967 Camaro RS one week at a time.
After John restores the starting/charging system, the Camaro will travel to its next destination. And, once the Camaro is completely finished it will be auctioned off for charity.
Community members and vintage car enthusiasts have the chance to come see the Camaro on Monday, June 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Leether Automotive in Bristol.
John has been an integral part of the community and will be celebrating the 31st anniversary of Leether Automotive at the event as well.
