The Dimebank Garage

The Dimebank Garage is a small operation specializing in the repair and modification of Triumph sports cars, with occasional forays into other British makes (and have even been known to work on Italian cars!). We are located in Palo Alto, California, USA, and we hang out on all the best mailing lists - you can call on the phone, but it's much more effective to send email.

We are currently expanding our expertise into building A series motors - if you'd like it done right but don't have the time to do it yourself, consider sending it to us. During this learning period, we are charging half our normal labor rate for A series engine work.

Our competitions department, GSP Racing, is currently running a GT6+ that was the fastest car at the 1993 Vintage Triumph Register National Challenge (with gratefully acknowledged sponsorship from The Roadster Factory's TRF Racing and a little help from Team Fat, 30 Over Motorsports and Hoan Racing.)

The Dimebank Garage is a source of tuning (both in the shop and on the road), autocross-tested modifications, and special parts, including uprated transmissions and rebuilt Laycock-DeNormanville overdrives, and custom fabrication.

There's also a big supply of Triumph-related advice (good advice costs extra) and an unending supply of enthusiasm for kamikaze restorations and lost causes.

What we really deal in, though, is possibility - we see the end of the journey, the once and future mechanical possibility of our beloved cars, the satisfying laps or carefree evenings (all depending on what you're into) of driving enjoyment once all the work is done. We'll help you capture that possibility, keep it alive, and turn it into reality.
