Holy smokes!!! Talk about a busy last week and a busy week ahead of us! Just when I thought we might catch a breather, we get more cars dropped off for all kinds of work from high performance to restorations. Just this past Saturday we had 5 heavy hitters dropped off that I am really excited about!
It saddens my heart to hear the customer’s horror stories of restoration jobs which take 3-4 years to complete at other shops. It takes all of the excitement out of it for them. A lot of our customer’s cars are family history and we take just as much pride in them as they do. We work to finish them to perfection every time. Whether it’s a 2013 Mustang 5.0 that is their first car or a 1982 Ford pickup that was an old farm truck – we try really hard to finish it exactly to their dreams!
This week I am finishing up a 1932 Rat Rod engine swap, putting cams in a 1982 Ford pickup (he is sure going to haul the mail with this bad boy), cams along with head work in a 2006 Viper, and so many other cars it feels like there is so little time for! Not to mention my youngest, Boyd, is going to test for his first time in a dirt car at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, TX this Saturday. He is a really good driver, but I’ll admit I’m nervous for him! He has only driven on asphalt tracks and if any of you have seen the movie Cars you probably understand what he’s going to need to learn – “You have to turn right to go left”….that will be a story all by itself next week I’m sure!!! It’s a big day for him, after school Crew Chief Dave fits him in the seat and gets him comfortable in the car before he hits the track.
Well like I said, so many cars – so little time, better get back to work!
