Donnie Callaway has spent over 30 years restoring magnificent collectible cars, most of them Ferraris. It started with him growing up in Los Angeles, then working at Hollywood Sports Cars, and soon thereafter, spending time in Hawaii with an uncle learning to hand form aluminum bodies. He does complete restorations, does all his own engine work, documents the builds, and reassembles concours level cars that win first places and breaking world records at auctions. Donnie has worked on pretty much every Ferrari model made including 512 BBs, 365 2+2s, TDFs, James Coburn’s California Spyder, and many, many others.
