maybe no one knows any of those shops. Go to the one you feel is more honest.

Top Gear if it were my choice. Is it the 97 LT1 in your sig? Sean at Top Gear works on a lot of LT1 F-bodies and B-bodies.

As for all the views and no votes, I think a bunch of people just look at posts that are in the Western section but the majority are not from AZ and can't really provide opinions on your locally based question.

Ruckus.. where have you been, I aint seen you at either event this weekend.

Top gear. Top Gear. Top Gear.
I would not trust anybody else to work on my cars.
I have had work done by the others. One of them I would not go back if the work was free. The other just seems the quality has dropped a bit.

Top Gear has never done me wrong since the day they opened.
He did all the work on my LT1 rebuild and did all the work on my formula so far. If I keep the car he will do the cam install also.
You cant go wrong with this guy.

best friend is deploying wed so been drinking the past 2 weeks and not doing car stuff. I went up to 83rd and beardsley for a little bit sat night cause a friend stopped by on his way to texas for the night and he wanted to see some car stuff, but didnt know exactly where the central cruise was so. I should be around this weekend and the bottle might be back in the wired up etc. Gotta get my tools back from my friend tomorrow hopefully

Funny... yes the 96 is a legit Firehawk... it's even purple. I don't see why anyone would make a Firehawk clone and make it purple of all colors. I bought them both used when they were 8 years old already and could never really afford a new one. Sean has worked on both of them for me. I have owned other F-bodies too and liked them a lot, just been a fan of the Firehawks for a long time. Here is a pic of each, first is 96 in Vegas and the other is the 00 in LA in May:

Example..of why i asked... I see people buying 94--96 CAPRICE'S and turning them into IMPALA SS. They arn't really a IMPALA but a clone. Like my car isnt an SS its a Z-28 but its basiclly an SS.

Nice cars though.....

What mods have you done to the 96 ? I know they come stock 315 hp. LT4 set up...
