Thinking about upgrading my air compressor and found a company called Eaton Compressors. They sound good in their ad but just wondering if anyone out there has one and how they like it. The one I am looking at is a 7.5 HP 80 gallon verticle tank. TIA

Yes and no. There is an Eaton that makes superchargers, but there is a differ one that does compressors.

I love your car. I'll have to keep my eye out for it, Reading isn't too far away from Allentown.

There is a lot of praise for the Eaton compressors and they seem to be a very good company to do business with. If I had the space for a larger compressor I'd be considering them.

You can do a search over at the Garage Journel (GarageJunkies renamed) forum as there's many threads about the Eaton compressors. http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/
