“Price is not a guarantee of quality.”
“Nothing is fixed until it proves to you it’s fixed.”
“When the going gets tough the tough gets going.”
BUSINESS AND LIFE CHALLENGE
Having a customer in a DB2, in the Carrera Panimericana race and having to replace an entire engine overnight to keep him in the race.
FIRST SPECIAL VEHICLE
An Austin Healey 1006 with a Chevy 283 V8 under the bonnet.
Any issues the cars had when new, they still have and you have to find a way around them.
