Thank you for visiting the GK Restorations website! 

As some visitors to this site may know, the original founder of GK Restorations, Gary Kempton, passed away on June 6, 2009. For the following 8 years after his passing. GK Restorations continued to be in business with the help of many of Gary's former employees. One of those employees, Mike Mankin had not only worked closely with Gary for many years, but also went on to form his own company: Remade By Hand, Inc.  Since December, 2017,  Mike and his company, Remade By Hand, Inc. have continued in the tradition of restoring vintage Porsches and they have been officially licensed to continue using the GK Restorations brand and trademarks.

You can view historical restoration work previously performed by GK Restorations prior to 2012 on this website and we highly suggest that visitors to this site find Mike and his company on Facebook: to discuss new business!
