    I see where you had the bottle painted at "Classic Coachworks"
    I had major problems with my daughters car at Classic. The person that painted the car is gone and they did say that they would fix the major screw-ups but they had the car forever the first time.

    Glad to see you guys still feel good about sending you car to a tuner that's name can't even be spelled out on this website because their name will be pulled, only due to the fact that JH is a [email protected] thief. Keep the faith!!!

    i can't believe you sent your car to Hennesse y. you're probably going to get ripped off, and your post is a slap in the face to the hundreds of people who have already been ripped off by the scumbag.

    Hey Jim,

    How far are you going with the 510... Are you going as radical as Anthony? Drop me an Email if you can, I would be intersted in your thoughts. I should have my motor next week and will need a week to install.

    Regards,

    Anthony,
    Just noticed you have 3.45 gears. Are you staying with those or going back to stock?

    I know most guys with big power are running stock 3.07 gears. I want to take it to the track with the 3.45's and see where we end up. I like the 3.45's with my street 19's (1" taller than stock) making the effective gear change a 3.33.

    If its a problem I will switch back or maybe run a taller slick.

    Anthony,

    I'm glad to see your happy with the tuner you chose, but I have a question. When I spoke to Clayton while your car was being transformed into the beauty it is now, I was under the impression your car was being modified by someone else?

    Larry,

    The initial motor work on my car was performed at the House of Speed. After my motor spun a rod bearing (not Kyle's fault) I shopped around.

    John offered the best pricing, put everything in writing and required no down payment until I got the dyno number we were shooting for. So far I he has surpassed my expectations and the car should be ready in two weeks. :)
