Creating the Talbo, the most beautiful car in the world
Gilles Chirignan, the proprietor, is a long-time car enthusiast, builder, and restorer. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clarkson University. His strong suits are CAD and his hands-on ability. Gilles is committed to providing you with exceptional customer service throughout the process, from designing and ordering your Talbo to service and maintenance.
All of the tooling was purchased from TLC Carrossiers. Under the guidance of George Balashak, we are proud to be able to once again produce the Talbo, with quite a few updates and improvements.
