This wasn't specifically mentioned in the topic, but ...

Exhausts -

Roberts Custom Exhaust LLC
847 Highams Ct, Woodbridge, VA 22191
(703) 492-4654

Robert's is a one-man operation, open Mon-Thur only, and you have to make appointments well in advance of when you want something done (i.e. 1-2 month waiting list), but there's a reason he has that many customers -- he's been doing this for probably 20 years and he's the best I've ever been to. Bar none. Did the work on both my muscle cars and my '04 F-150.

I've got two great experiences with shops in the Northern Virginia Area.

Robert's Custom Exhaust has already been mentioned. My own experience with Robert was great. Highly recommended in my book.

Ted Britt Ford. Bought my '66 in March, and then discovered the spacer plate between the engine and bell housing had not been installed. This is a 351W in a '66 so it is nowhere near factory. Ted Britt has a couple of senior mechanics with vintage mustang experience willing to do the work. They seemed a litle uneasy about finding the parts, so I took that on. Asked them to put in an alterstart mini starter at the same time. Once the parts were my problem they were eager to work on a vintage car. Great job, quick turn-around and reasonable price.mo

R&J automotive in Fredericksburg, VA is a good place to have work done. I had floors and doors replaced here and the work was top notch. Price was fair. Chuck Tyler is the owner. Does quality work. He specializes in early mustang restoration.

I like Ralph Evans at E&G Bodyshop in White Marsh ( Northeastern Baltimore County). I've known him for about 20 years, and he's done a LOT of mustangs. (410) 335-5566 is his number. He recently declined restoring a 72 convertible that I asked him about - said he's not doing 71-73's anymore. Prefers 65-68. Tell him Greg Purdy sent ya!

Good - let me know how it goes.

The first time I met Ralph, he and his former partner brought a 65 or 66 convertible to Carlisle on a rotisserie. They had restored 1/2 of it, right down the middle. That was a real good advertisement. He knew Mustangs real well back then, and that was about 20 years ago. I've seen a lot of cars go through his shop. I'm sure you'll be happy. :D

Just wanted to let everyone from S.E. PA know of a new venture we have going. Myself, and 2 partners have opened up a small muscle car garage in Harleysville, PA. That's just up from the Landsale exit of the Northeast Extension. It's called Fuzzy Dice Autos. We don't specialize in Mustangs, but have a very competent mechanic on board. Between him and me, we have a pretty good grasp on vintage Mustang mechanicals. We currently are not doing any body restoration, but can handle engine, drivetrain and suspension work. Rates are reasonable and as we are just getting started, we don't have a backlog of work yet. We may also consider renting out time on our 2-post lift if our insurance allows it. More on that later.

We plan on doing a few cruise-ins this summer and would be very happy to have some VMF'ers come by to show off their cars. I'm the only Ford guy in the shop as the other 2 partners are Corvette/Chevelle types. So I'll appreciate some back-up when we have a cruise. I'll post the dates here as we get them organized.

You can leave a post here if we can help you, or contact me at home at 610-489-0176.

Machine Shop -
A couple of weeks ago a posted a question to see if anyone knew of a good machine shop in Northern Virginia. Somewhat later I found a very strong recommendation on the Motorhead web site for Fairfax Auto Machine. I'm using them now - so far so good.
