Surf City Garage history

1970 saw the purchase of Tim’s first car, a 1967 Pontiac GTO, which was the first of many additions to the collection of the Surf City Garage American Muscle Car Collection.
To keep the cars in the collection in great shape, the quality of the products at that time wasn’t good enough. The quest for good products had started, which was the first sign of the Surf City brand for detailing products.
