I recently had some mods done to my 69 vert (some of you will recognize it) by a shop named "Blood Enterprises" located in Auburn, Washington. Had isues with the power steering, so decided to go with the Borgeson conversion (they also suggested this). I also figured since they were doing that, to do the popular hydraulic clutch conversion (also suggested by them). They mentioned that I might want do the rear pinion seal and tranny output shaft seal. What's really nice is they're only 10 minutes from house. If they found something that needed attention, they would always call me. I had a leaky brake caliper that I knew about. They called and asked if I was aware of this. They wanted me to come down and discuss replacing it. We talked and I figured might as well replace both while they're under there anyways. We also discussed a few other things I've been wanting to do. Some minor carb work. These guys are the best. Great communication. Awesome work. Reasonable prices. And the owner gave me a couple tickets to the Pacific Raceways Sovern historic races for free. He had a car racing in one of the brackets. Very cool.

Anyway they are really good people, great mechanics. And he's slowly getting some national attention, which in my opinion is well deserving.

Blood Enterprises. Look them up. They've been around for 20+ years.

Thanks for reading.

Again, don't know why the broken power steering pic gets rotated😕

And an Auburn Indiana. Home of the Auburn, Dusenberg and Cord museum housed in the design building of the Auburn. Nice small museum with a couple nice big dead flat granite plates for measuring whole cars.


It's great to find the rare few shops like that. Not many of them left. Oh and the pictures get rotated because the site goes off the info in the picture file of the cameras top orientation not the info in the file of the picture orientation. The only way to fix it is through a picture editor. Few UBBs have this issue.

So good to hear a member with a positive outcome on repairs done by a local business and the moderators let you post this! Shops and vendors should be rewarded with positive reviews for doing good work.

There's probably an Auburn somewhere in every state.
As a matter of fact, I DO live in Auburn, Alabama ! !
And even with all the other Auburns, there's no place like it. War Eagle ! !
Glad @Ibcnul8r the OP found a great shop.
My good friends at Auburn Generator and Starter, Eddie Guerin and Rob House are world-class, I have and continue to recommend them to anyone that wants original components rebuilt the right way.
