Too bad the shop owner is lying when he said he (his shop) pulled the molds off an original car. The molds WERE pulled from an original, but by Hermann Quint, now of M-Wing Motors LLC.

It took me many years of dreaming, a solid year of researching, writing a business plan, applying for business loans, countless late nights, and many new gray hairs. But, now I have a shop.

I hope he’ll be back to spend some money at some point. I think most shop owners have forgotten what it’s like to be a customer.

Being the owner of a shop, and upon bringing in a car with timing chain issues, I would have inspected the heads for bent valves right off the bat. This is common sense for any shop.
