Christopher Allard, Owner and Lead Technician/Fabricator at Gallery Garage has been working on cars since he was old enough to hold a wrench. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Christopher spent his younger years learning from his Grandfather who specialized in custom upholstery and antique automotive restoration. Their favorite collaboration, a 1929 Ford Tudor Model A, is on display in the showroom of Gallery Garage. 

Christopher started his career through a work study program in high school at Fugate's Auto Electric rebuilding starters and alternators for big commercial vehicles and marine applications. Christopher went on to complete the installation program at The Installer Institute in 2006, and headed West shortly after. There he worked in esteemed shops from Los Angeles to San Francisco, mastering 12V custom wiring, stereo work, and fiberglass. Christopher's experience is extensive; his custom work has been featured in magazines such as Honda Tuner and Super Street Magazine, and he has won awards across various fields including stereo work and custom fabrication.

With over ten years of professional experience, Christopher and his wife have opened their own shop in Bend to share his skills and passion for custom automobiles.
