Alignment in Houston / Humble

Chris' Car Doc
281-540-7223
1920 Treble Dr. A1
Humble, TX 77338

Just got my '67 Mustang aligned after doing the Shelby drop. Chris Carroll (owner) aligned my car. He knows what he is doing and is a perfectionist.

I know Chris' shop has been mentioned before, yet I think it is worth bringing up again.

Transmission shop in Houston / Humble

A-1 Discount Transmission Specialists
2103 East FM 1960
Humble, TX 77338
281-446-0468

Look for the blonde mannequin out front.
At Business 1960 and FM 1960.

Had my AOD transmission rebuilt after I messed up the pump doing the swap

David, the tranny tech (yes, I know how that sounds), is an expert and knows what he is doing.
Sam the owner, is also great to work with.

Restoration Shop - Abilene/West Texas Area

Blue Twisted Steel
Abilene, Tx
325-669-0757

Mitch and his brother Forrest are doing some very nice work out here. They will work with the owner to find the level of restoration that they are looking for.
It's a little off the beaten path but well worth the trip. Several friends as well as personal experience allow me to recommend this shop highly for any work you are needing on classic cars.

Rescinded Recommendation

Unfortunately I am in a position where things have changed and I must rescind my above recommendation. If anyone is considering that establishment and needs further clarification they can PM me.

I even took my own parts (complete single pipe exhaust from manifold back on my '65 289 2bbl). When I get the Ford Racing axle backs for my 2014, L & L will be doing the install.

Thanks, I'll drop in next time I go visit my daughter in Austin. I saw the post about L&L but it was 12 years old nice to know they are still recommended.

Question

Any body shop recommendations for north Texas - DFW? I tried the one below (from a post on page 1 of this thread), but they are gone.

Thanks!

Owner's name is Ronnie Howell (bought shop from 'Curtis' and kept name). Really nice guy, had two Mustangs in shop at the time I visited. Seems familiar with Mustangs and their repairs. He is the ONLY ONE of the several I have called that is willing to work on rust and collision issues of these early Mustangs and not only on insurance collision repair. I have not had any work performed here so I cannot speak from experience , but from what I saw on one car it looks like he would be a good person to keep in mind.

Classic Mustangs of Houston did a nice job on many parts of my 69 Fastback. Swapped out my C6 tranny for a Tremec TKO 600, replaced my shock towers, swapped out my motor, etc., etc.

Any good machine shop in El Paso TX or nearby area to rebuild my tired 289, 4V.
Nothing wild or exotic, just fresh reliable street performance reliability with good internals.

Thank you.
