II Eagles Auto Body & Collision Repair

Story by Lee Sheridan

When I called John, owner of II Eagles to do this interview, of course he was slamming busy with work, but made the time to tell me all about his experience and journey in auto body & collision repair.  John began turning wrenches in the backyard of his parent’s home when he was a young teenager. It was then, he knew that one day he wanted to be the sole proprietor of his own shop. Fast forward about 2 decades later, John opened II Eagles and has been running his successful shop at the same location for over 23 years.

The shop is family owned and operated and John insists on it being run with old school traditions. Customers come first, which is apparent from the very first time you hire II Eagles for your automotive needs. John shared with me the fact that he has always stayed cutting edge in his business by keeping up with what times called for. An example of that statement takes us back to the 90’s when low profile cars with huge boom systems and spinners were all the rage. II Eagles did dozens and dozens of these automobiles from top to bottom, which tells us that this shop has done more than their share of custom work. They are very passionate about restoring older model muscle cars, which is a dying breed for many auto shops. Just to give you an idea of the custom work you can have done at II Eagles, they accomplished a $40,000 complete body off chassis restoration on an old year muscle car. John wanted to be sure that this article mentioned the fact that his shop specializes in taking care of insurance claim repairs,  and recently did a high dollar insurance claim on a 2017 Mercedes.

A very rare amenity, which II Eagles offers to their clients, is rental service right on the property. The service is owned by John and available to the general public, but more importantly, offers patrons of his business, the comfort and convenience of having transportation should their auto repair leave them without wheels for any amount of time.

It is obvious from this article that II Eagles covers all the bases when it comes to auto body & collision repair, insurance claims, rentals, custom work, restorations and body off chassis restorations. The passion, talent and expertise doesn’t stop there, they also refinish, paint and do graphics not only on autos, but on motorcycles too. They recently took on the project of transforming a Sportster into a trike. The result not only pleased the customer esthetically, the bikes performance was tight and well balanced.
