What is Proper Noise?
The positive click of a correctly aligned door latch. The reassuring tick from a healthy fuel pump. A whirring starter motor awakening a well-tuned engine with a bark. A rhythmic idle originating from balanced carburetors and ignition, that transforms into a combined wail of gears, induction, and combustion.
This is Proper Noise.
We focus on delivering the visceral motoring experience that only a vintage car can evoke.
Since 1975, the workshop on Ridge Avenue has been known for quality foreign car service in the Reading area. Under the Carriage Craft name, Bill Shields built a reputation for accurate restoration and meticulous repair of European cars.
After 12 years developing his skills at some of the best shops in the region, Ed Sweeney returned to Reading to continue that tradition of craftsmanship.
