Was tired of having the pipes and dual mufflers scrape the road on the smallest bumps while driving the Chevelle so left the car with Magnum Motors for the day. Had 2 brand new cargo springs installed on the rear (although I was afraid it was going to be jacked up in the rear which is what I did not want). The owner assured me it would be brought back to stock without a huge lift. While the car was in the shop, it was timed, tuned up, gone over entirely getting it ready for the annual ride to LEAD EAST in Parsippany, known as the "worlds biggest 50's party."
I have to say I am so pleased with the way it now sits, but more so how it drives much better. Hard to notice, but the first pic shows the car before the springs were installed and the third pic down is after the install.
After having less than honest experiences with various chain mechanic shops over the last 20 years, having a trustworthy, knowledgeable, honest ace mechanic is worth it's weight in gold to me in my opinion...All of my family's cars including my daughters' have only and will only be going to Lyndon at Magnum Motors. If there is something that truly does not need to get done or fixed, he will be honest and not do the work or "fabricate" a job just to do it which is cool.
Below is one of his shop trucks that he actually just sold...Was a huge ride and was actually street legal if fender flares were installed for the huge tires...Also attached below is the info for LEAD EAST which is coming up in a couple of weeks...
