On August 15, 2021 at the 70th Pebble Beach. The 1937 T57s Corsica bodied Bugatti, owned by Scott & Joanie Kriens won 1st in class and ended up in the winners circle to be picked for 2nd place behind the winning car, Best of Show owned by Debrah and Aurturo Keller.
Many people worked on portions of the T57s Bugatti. But it was Sargent Metal Works shop that pulled it all together and made it drive in the rally on Thursday flawlessly, as well as, showing and running without fail on show day. We would like to thank American Speed & Custom, Richmond Upholstery, Ron Jones Customs, Chamberlain Woodworking, and Jim Stranberg for all their hard work.
Sargent Metal Works is a 12,000 square foot, antique car restoration facility located in the middle eastern part of Vermont. We work on automobiles, primarily from the pre-war era. However you can always find a post-war Alfa Romeo or Ferrari in the shop.
Bugatti is our favorite marque and their heyday being 1939 and earlier makes up most of the cars in restoration or preservation. We, here at Sargent Metal Works, document, preserve, maintain, and/or completely restore these cars as well as Alphas, Ferraris, Lotus, etc.
To preform this task, we have a wide range of tools. In house, we have milling machines, metal lathes, sheet metal sheers, English wheel, a pull max metal forming machine, as well as a spray booth, and tig welder.
We can preform about any task in house other than nickel or chrome plating and upholstery trim. For those 2 tasks, we utilize a 25+ years working relationships with Richmond Upholstery of Richmond Vermont and D & S Custom Plating of Holyoke Mass.
What sets us apart, is that we have won the Peninsula "Best of the Best" award 3 times that is held in France.
