    I bought a hard to find part from these guys about 2 months ago and just got down
    To their shop to pick it up this last Saturday.

    In short what a great bunch of guys. They made us feel right at home and gave us a
    Shop tour. Those guys are building some neat stuff. They are definitely living the life.
    Needless to say I really enjoyed my short stay there.

    I first saw JIm Barrilaro of Jim's Speed Emporium at Connecticut Dragway back in the 60's with his green 57 Ford pictured below. This picture was taken at Dover Dragstrip, Wingdale N.Y.
