TGR's Garage...
 
Well I've decide to make a thread to post about some of the cars we work on at our shop. I though it would be better, to have an all in one, than scattering cars in their proper threads. I'll post about the car and what we are doing to them, and my thoughts about them and their behavior on the road. Feel free to offer advice to possible fixes on the cars, just be polite. So anything that's audacious/special or ford related, that comes to our shop I'll post about them, with pictures, in this thread. As well as Car shows and related events I attend. In my area there's car shows every weekend so this thread will be pretty active. I already have photos of some cars that we've worked on and will post them shortly...
Enjoy!

So the first car is...
Attachment 180608
A 1969 Camaro Z/28 RS. It has a built 383 stroker with a factory GM cross ram intake, four speed. Car has the original orange interior in it. It's the loudest car I've heard, has longtubes and x pipe dumping in front of the rear wheels. Owner has the original 302 and rallye wheels with the vehicle...
We've done to many mods to the vehicle to list but it's a very nice car.
Unfortunately this is the only picture I have of the car...

08 BMW M6 with the carbon fiber package. This BMW holds the record for most DTC on a car that's come to our shop, with over 40 DTC in the engine alone. The car is a V10 6spd, sounds good and very fast. But after having the car for many months we found out the vehicle had been wrecked and very poorly put back together. Needless to say the owner no longer has the car...

Full engine rebuild along with various repairs, total cost $25,000 repair bill after lowering cost on labor charge. Car is very strong and incredibly agile. Very beautiful car. It's currently in with a bad master cylinder, and full inspection with full service oil change. Beautiful car...

2010 GT. This is the owner of the 69 Z/28 RS and 90 ZR1, both cars are gone now, but he bought this one. We've put nearly 7 exhaust systems on it so far, current is Catted xpipe no mufflers. We did a lowering kit, but then took it off, he didn't like it. He's put a bigger tire in the rear as you can tell in the fist picture. I personally haven't driven the car yet, but it's very clean and good looking...

01 Corvette. Borla atak install full service oil change. Car was barely louder than stock, so he came back later that week and we cut off the last two cats (4 cat system) made it louder but not by much. My Roush AB are louder than this car. But super nice and good driving car. Again can't beat the C5 fuel mileage...

70 challenger T/A. This is my car, it's at my shop where I'm performing the restoration. What I've done so far is this. Glass removal, interior removal, passenger rear quarter panel, driver rear quarter panel skin, trunk, trunk extensions, passenger rear floor pan section, both front fenders, tail light housing, manual trans floor pan section. It's a work in progress, I like it a lot and I drove it for about 3 months before I parked it where you see it, 5 years ago. The restoration has been put it on the back burner many times. Now I'm just waiting on my painter to give me a go, and engine and trans will be removed, body sent to him (hard to paint an engine bay when the engine is in the car). I've got new instrument panel, and new interior on the way with a few more body pieces waiting to be put on. That's all I can think of to say about the car. This is what it will look like, when finished...
