At Past Perfect we just love classic memorabilia - items of classic beauty, produced in a by-gone era, when the motors
and mechanics were simple and the craft and cabinetry were unique. We lived
it then and we love bringing it all back to life now.
Don Orlandi, owner of Past Perfect, first discovered his passion for restoring vintage memorabilia when he owned an auto body shop
and used his talents to paint the classic cars used in the 1971 George Lucas
movie "American Graffiti". With an incredible vision, coupled with a knack for buying the right pieces and talent for restoring them, Don has a feeling and a soft spot for each and every piece we restore.
Just give the man a little encouragement and he will regale you delightful childhood stories and will gladly take any willing listener on a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
We believe in doing things right, so we don't think you will
find more professionally restored classic memorabilia anywhere.
Our staff is a highly talented group of people who use their imagination and passion to restore vintage pieces to their original condition. Our inventory comes from individuals and businesses, and we only purchase the best
memorabilia we can find.
We love to hear all the stories that go along with all the
pieces so feel free to email us your stories and photos! We truly consider what we do labor of love.
