This is the history of my hobby.

My first real car in 1982 was a 73 Mach 1 and decided to have a roll bar installed just like my 68 Shelby KR's.

I was working as an apprentice mechanic back in 1983 when I decided to put a 351 Cleveland in a 1981 Ford Escort body. I priced a roll cage and realised I could make one for less. I built a 2" x 3" frame, added a Mustang II front clip and hung the 8" rear. Over the years I changed the engine / trans combo a few times.

In 1984 a friend approached me and asked for a cage in his Dart, that became a 14 pt cage and a complete frame from the torsion bars rearward.

He was so impessed I later did an 85 Mustang GT for
him with a 6 pt.and my style of "REAL" frame connectors,

then an 81 Z28 6pt and REAL frame connectors.

His next car was a 1970 Z28 which required a rear quarter to be removed the rear frame pulled, the trunk floor was staightened and the new quarter panel installed along with a 6pt and frame connectors.

I have specialized in Mustang (Fox) and Camaros. I have perfected my swing out door bars along with optimum placement. I have engineered in energy absorbtion and anti-intrusion features for maximun street safety.
Later I went on to axle narrowing and supplying "Strange" axles, U.S. Gears, AVO coil overs/spring and 4 link/ladder systems.
