We told him not to hot rod it. There were metal shavings in the crank case. And apparently he was hammering on it hard. So engine went boom.

Probably not. Which you have to set the cams at an idle and at 6,000 RPMs. Just some odd thing that Porsche did when designing the engine. It's a very meticulous engine, everything has to be done perfectly or it won't run good. But something is loose in the crank case. He started it and you could hear it banging around in there...

Well we'll see if the 30 grand engine is toast; my boss thinks so. Very unfortunate, such a rare piece that might be ruined...

A friend I go to shows with just stopped by to say hey. And show me the cars he was with when he went on a power tour from like Wisconsin to Louisiana. And he needs us to work on his 68 Cougar. He's got a really nice one like 15K original miles (he's put 14,XXX miles on it)...

The silver car in the back. Oh and this car (04 GT) is a good friend of mine's car. I planned on buying it, but couldn't get him the cash when he needed it. So he sold it to his grandson. He came in Monday and told me his grandson wrecked it...

06 Ram 1500. We repaired an exhaust hanger. Spoke with the mother of the owner. From what she told me truck has quite a lot of money in it. Most are not performance enhancements. Lift kit, sound system, exhaust, various interior upgrades, wheels/tires, and what you see in the pictures. I like the tire tread design I've never seen it before, and it's Nittos! Nice truck...

You're right you could literally make bread on that engine and it would be perfect. The car is one of the few that could classified as "spotless..."
I joked with about giving him my MG and making it into this cars condition. I even told him I wouldn't make him pay for taking it...

Well, yes the cover makes it a little hard to see the progress. Just take my word on it, it's come a long way. The lines are 10x better then they were when the car arrived. So the horrible body work is fixed and surpassed my exceptions in every way. So, I dropped of some requested parts and some money. Reason it's outside is he's painting another vehicle and it had to come out. It should be back in by the weekend. Sometime next week I'll head back out there and get some better pictures. Cars coming together, slowly but surely...

01 F250. Has a miss and vibrates at 50mph. Nothing really special about this truck except it's the V10. I've got a thing for V10s; I hope one day I'll have a V10 powered car, hint hint... Viper...
Plus a co-worker wants this truck bad. I'd love it too. Nothing like the sound of a V10...

TGR's garage/car shows and events...

It was a really good turn out. I enjoyed it, but I had to leave early. I took the wrong pill and my condition started acting up. Plus the car show idiot parked right beside my Impala. So I wasn't very happy about that...
I also discussed with the 15 GT owner about starting a mustang club in our area. He also owners a highly modded 06 Roush stage 1...

02 Continental. In for A/C work. I wasn't aware they had the 4V in a FWD set up. But the car is pretty nice, especially that engine. Has a decent sound for a stock exhaust set up. Nice car...

There will be two more cars that will be posted shortly...

Well I was too busy today to get pictures of some cars we have at the shop currently. Tomorrow I should be able to get some of them. There's about 5 that need pictures. Other cars I'll update the status on. Interesting note is I almost died in the 54 MG last week. Thank God that Malibu driver was paying attention and had good brakes...

07 Jaguar XK. The car is in for some type of hose replacement. I think it's here for another reason, but I don't know what it is off the top of my head. It's a V8 (4.2L). We all thought the key fob look very good. It has very smooth steering and very luxurious. I'll try to get some more pictures later today...
