Our History

The Resto Shop was started by Bart Ziegenhagen in a barn in the Alviso, CA in the summer of 2008. 

Bart has fully restored several BMW 2002’s to their original glory. He knows every curve of the bodywork, every invisible weak spot that needs strengthening, and every option to keep your car original, or modify tastefully with modern tech upgrades.

His no-nonsense approach with perfect results has gained a small but loyal following. Bart is an expert at metal working and fabrication, body and paint, engine and drivetrain rebuilding or modification, and disassembly and careful reassembly of BMW 2002s.
