The Future of Collector Car Restoration Needs Your Help Today

Friends of Black Horse Garage can support the next generation of restoration mechanics through the Frank Buonanno Scholarship Fund.

As someone who knows and appreciates what my father has accomplished in his 45-year career, you can make sure that young men and women have the opportunity to learn those same skills. They can go on the enjoy a career that will elevate the car collector world. We can’t lose what my father, Frank, has built by letting this kind of craftsmanship simply disappear any more than we can deny eager students their shot at working on the best that the automotive industry can engineer. By donating to the scholarship fund in his name, you will help me honor an amazing man in a way that will make him proud. - John Buonanno
