Joe Zeigler retired from Thompson Tractor Company and was then able to spend more time on one of his passions, older cars and bringing them back to life. He has used various locations to store and work on his vehicles and recently found Alabama Gearheads, which is located in south side Birmingham and offers car storage, lifts for maintenance, 24×7 access, a security system, and more. www.alabamagearheads.com.
Over time he moved his six vehicles there and uses the car lifts and other equipment to do what he can to restore his vehicles. There is usually another person in the building so if he needs some assistance it is available. He uses local repair and body shops to do work he can’t and then reassembles the vehicles.
With the 24×7 access, internal and external cameras and well lighted exterior he can use the facility when he gets the urge!
