More Photos From 2011 SEMA Car Show Las Vegas Custom Mustang GT

"Last year, we put one shop to the ultimate test: After conducting a nationwide search for a custom shop capable of turning a 2010 Chevy Camaro SS into something special, we settled on Netcong Auto Restorations, LLC. of Netcong, New Jersey."

"Phil and Dana Brazer, the shop's owners, then subjected themselves to our deadlines and the harsh glare of scrutiny."

"The amazing machine that resulted featured bold styling and enough chassis modifications to shame many purpose-built race cars."

Daily Record Newspaper Story - Chosen from 200 auto restoration shops nationwide to design the ultimate muscle car for Popular Mechanics

Netcong shop puts muscle into car restoration

NETCONG — As if being chosen from 200 auto restoration shops nationwide to design the ultimate muscle car for Popular Mechanics last year wasn’t enough for Netcong Auto Restorations owner Phillip Brazer, 2011 has proven to be another banner year for the shop.

Opened three years ago by Brazer and his wife, Dana, the shop recently welcomed new talent to work on cars ranging from convertibles to Rolls-Royces to Packards: Sussex County resident Hector Rodriguez, and the couple’s teenage son, Grant.

The shop boasts its own in-house auto upholstery, interior, convertible, and vinyl tops department, providing a one-stop-shop for owners of antique collector show cars, custom cars, hot rods and street rods, Restomods, and classic and sports cars, among others. The shop also performs work on late-model cars, trucks, motorcycles, and boats.

“Now we really are full-service,” said the Hillsborough resident. Netcong Auto Restorations recently opened a state-of-the-art restoration facility in the Landing section of Roxbury. The shop also maintains a facility in Stanhope.

“We had to expand to accommodate our new custom interior services,” Brazer said.
When the shop was asked by Popular Mechanics to customize the Camaro for the magazine’s annual car makeover feature, Brazer considered the prestigious project a tribute to the young shop’s success.

Project Camaro began when more than 200 auto restoration shops across the country were asked by Popular Mechanics to submit design proposals for a high-performance muscle car.

Netcong Auto Restorations again was commissioned this year’s feature. The project included customizing a 2011 Ford Mustang GT convertible and a 2011 Victory Hammer S motorcycle.
