More Finds

We often get ask to do a quick service, as far as we are concerned there isn’t really such a thing as a “quick service” at Mustang Maniac. We can do a speedy oil change, but not a quick service as the reason is fairly simple; Pride. When we do an oil change we automatically look under the car and get nosey as it were. We like to look out for things that need to be done, or will need to be done soon. It’s not that we are trying to push for repairs – far from it, as we as very busy and would need to allocate the proper time to repair what ever we may find. The point is that we look because we want our customers to be safe and enjoy their cars. More often than not we don’t find anything that needs doing, but we still look – just in case. That’s difference between changing the oil elsewhere and changing the oil with us. Our loyal customers know all to well that we often try to talk customers out of changing parts just for the sake of it, or spending money when it’s not required, such is our honesty. Adam will advise what you do or don’t need for the car. As a result of our solid work ethics and honesty, we got our regular customers returning to us along with a growing list of new customers after their visit with us. Whether you are a celebrity client or a not, the service is still the same.

Customers Cars

First this week was a Falcon Sprint in for a service for this little lady and full once over. An unusual colour and in great condition too.

Next up was a 66 Fastback that needed a service, minor tune ups, and a carpet replacement. This is an ideal time to take a look at the important floor pans from the inside out, looking for the usual places of rust, if they need any attention we will advise the customer. We are pleased to say that so far all is well with this little lady too.

More Old Photo’s

We mentioned last week we found some old videos of Yogi and his car, well we also found some pictures from Adam’s winter break in Barbados. As you would expect the scenery was superb, the beaches breathtaking and with cocktail drinks to die for. As always Adam did not disappoint us and came back with great pics from that holiday – pics from a cars museum! Yep this is from Mr Mallalieu’s own private collection of cars and some rare beasts in there too. Who wants to lay around on a sun soaked beach when you can look at cars in Barbados?

DeAgostini Shelby GT500 1:8th Scale Model

We are receiving a number of emails from collectors who are following our build guide of the Shelby GT500. Some of the emails are from people who are asking us for replacement parts, and even the odd complaint about not getting their issues or missing issues. In fact one subscriber to this piece build program even wanted to send their issues back to us for a refund as they were still waiting for missing issues. We also had to subscribe to the whole two-year build process too, just like the rest of the world.

We are in NO WAY affiliated with DeAgostini. 

If you have any issues please contact the directly with the details in the magazines. Any email response from us will only point you in their direction anyway. We had the odd hiccup here and there and nothing that couldn’t be sorted out with a quick phone call or email. We hope this saves you time in the future by contacting them directly.

Have a great Easter and don’t eat too much Chocolate – save some for us when you visit next time.

  1. Barbados and a car museum, i can see that ti be fair. As for DeAggrostingy where is the case they promised, nit even mentioned on the website, they are useless and can’t hardly speak English when you ring them up.
    The attention to detail on the carse you service i certainly back that up 100% nobody even comes close to you guys at MM.

  2. I can kind of feel that guys just from reading your posts. In my opinion you are also making yourself a great business model, as you kind of fall between the official dealers (known also as stealers) and the Halford cum Quik Fit outfits. There is no passion in Halfords. My mate Martin runs a wonderful Yamaha dealership and they too have great passion for their work and you can feel it when you walk into their shop. I think that is why folks come back.
