"These cars have got a lot of character and you can get pretty attached to them."


The little community of Venosta in the Gatineau River Valley is home to a hundred people or so, but the village has a big name in antique-car restoration: 51-year-old John McLaughlin.

Raised on a nearby dairy farm, John comes from a family with deep roots in the valley.

His grandfather ran the General Store and his great uncle owned a garage and welding shop, catering mostly to farmers and loggers.

For as long as he can remember, Johnís felt passionately about old cars and trucks.

When he was 14 he landed a part-time job in an auto-body repair shop through a connection of his fatherís. By the time he was 22 he was in business for himself.

John talked with StoryNet about the seemingly universal appeal of old vehicles, what to look for if youíre thinking of restoring one yourself, and some of his favourite rebuilds.
