Can anyone recommend a mustang shop in Northern NJ? Has anyone ever used Garden State Mustangs in Fairfield, nj?

Also, I'm thinking about taking automotive classes... anyone know of who offers them in Northen NJ?

Thanks!

I haven't used garden state mustangs. I have driven by his house and seen the projects in the yard. One of my friends had one of his cars there probably 10 years ago but he got impatient and took it to some one that wasn't so busy. My brother talked to him almost a year ago about doing his but he hasn't made up his mind what to do with it yet. There are other places around, i had Mustang Jim's come take a look a my car years ago before i decided i wanted to do the work myself. I think Mustang Jim's is in Wanaque?

I never went here either but they keep sending me a brochure so you may want to check out Passaic County Technical Institute Adult Evening Program. See if you can take a tour of the shop.

Is this a newer place in Wanaque?

I'm originally from Wanaque before I moved here to CT and I don't remember any Mustang places down there. I can only guess it's along Ringwood Ave. someplace.

(I lived on Aldrin Dr. near Lakeland High School / Addice Park)

Did you know a guy by the name of Tom Raby? I use to work with him years ago, he was from that general area.

I've bought parts from the guy in fairfield. I didn,t even know he was still around.
I used to go to the mine hole in ringwood. Alot of drinking and Metal music. Used to drive up in my then new to me unrestored 70 Mach I. I only just getting it finished. I should be driving it this spring. Greens in Red Bank is from what I've heard is the best place around. Get your wallet out they ain't cheap.
