New to area

Postby kniteridr60 » Fri Sep 24, 2010 12:27 pm

I've recently relocated to the Arkansas area from the North East. I'm looking for advice on the best mechanics in the area for a classic car since I don't know anyone. Recommendations?

Man, tough first post.

No one wants to recommend a shop in case you get screwed and then blame them. I don't think anyone's being unfriendly here, they're just scared to comment.

What kind of car are we talking about?

I'm not trying to get anyone in trouble (least of all me :shock:). I just figured if there was someone who stands out head and shoulders above the rest, I'd give them a look-see. Met a team the other week from a local place and they're nice enough guys, so it's no biggie :Peace:. I thought I'd expand my horizon as I meet people. Just looking for information, that's about it. Thanks for posting.

Oh, yeah... the car... it's a 2001 Superformance Shelby Cobra with a "Class 2" 351W.

Well, in that case, we will have to send you to the worst mechanic we know. We can't have those Fords beating us up all the time.

I have to ask if you've found the 'Stang Gang forums yet? They're pretty active and local. They might be a great resource for you. There's a link to them in clubs part of our links page.

I toured this shop as a guest of the River Valley Mustang Club.
Very nice.
They did a 1966 Mustang Fastback for a friend of mine that has appeared (and trophied) at a few shows in the Little Rock area. It can be viewed under the "completed cars" tab in the page header.
