In recent years we have had a great presence at RetroAuto at The Inn at Spanish Bay. Peter Bourassa at MMR.COM introduced me to Doug Buchanan at Garage Graphics who has supported my efforts with these enormous and beautiful backlit displays. As a photographer who uses PhaseOne, the finest capture devices, it is most gratifying to see that exceptional quality held through to the printing process that Garage Graphics uses. The print of the Porsche 906 is 7' tall and 16' feet wide.

Thank you Doug for making us at Coachbuilt Press shine!!
