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...
ImageUploadedByMustang Evolution1429634181.413070.jpg
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...

90 ZR1. Car has original tires on it. It was misdiagnosed by my brother, was running bad. We replaced the original spark plugs, but it turned out the injectors weren't working, car was running on 5 cylinders. It's a DOHC twin injected V8. Car is the best driving car I've ever driven to date...

It's currently in with a bad master cylinder, and full inspection with full service oil change. Beautiful car...
