Trick Or Treat?

This is not a trick; we have some very, very exciting news regarding our postage rates. Full details are towards the end of the post about our post. It will be a real treat treat for you.

Could our postage be free? Take a look and see! 😎

Last week’s post about the ‘Evil Ethanol’ where we could be slowly destroying our cars with has caused a bit of a stir. Thanks to the those that posted a comment, messaged and emailed us. That post was one of our most engaging and kept us busy with responses, more than we expected. The answer to the question ‘Are we selling the Lucas Fuel stabiliser as a marketing ploy?’ Yes and No, let us explain. The research we done a little while ago revealed some pretty nasty facts about the government’s new ‘green fuel’, as well as the positives that the additive reduces emissions. For classic car owners – there is hardly any good news to be honest. We were a little shocked at the damage it can cause so we looked for a solution, hence we are now stocking the Lucas Safeguard to counter the problems. We reacted, to the research arranged for the stock that took longer to get here than we expected, then we released the article. Yes we are using it ourselves!

Customer Cars:

We have a ’67 convertible in with us with a couple of upgrades to be fitted.

This little lot will give a nice boost to performance that’s for sure. New intake, new Holley Carb, spacer, new spark plugs, headers, gaskets etc.

While we were taking the old intake out we gave her a service. We cleaned the sludge as best we could, which makes perfect sense. You don’t want fresh oil dragging around old sludge. While it’s all exposed bite the ‘Bullitt’ (see what we did there?) and do it.

The shorty headers were on next, the valve covers, plugs and the spark wiring. It’s always a good idea to remove the plugs when fitting the exhaust outlets.

Under the car we need to make a custom fit exhaust to already new(ish) system. We would like to point out that the welding here is not the best and not a lot we can do about it.

We cut the pipes back to give us enough room to make the bends and clearance to the shorty headers.

The front strut rods were a little worse for wear so they got swapped out while we were at it.

We need to make the rest of the exhaust, take her for a little run to settle down then we will do some dark art magic on the carb settings. Then she should be good to go.


No Tricks, It’s Free Postage!

Mustang Maniac has taken more than our fair share of abuse over our postal charges, most of which are dictated to us by the couriers. So we got our heads together and come up with ‘TRIAL‘ for free postage. We will be offering free postage on orders under £50.

How it works;

  • Go to the WebShop as normal
  • Shop for your items and add them to the basket
  • Proceed to checkout.
  • If the order is under £50.00
  • Select your postal method
  • Proceed to payment
  • We do the rest and ship out to you.

If your order is £50.00 or over then you will be paying the same courier rates as before.

Please Note:

We will be keeping a very close eye on postage with a few things we have put in place. If we see that people are trying to ‘work’ the system, we may well stop that person ever getting free postage again, or remove free postage for everybody altogether. This was launched on 27/10/2021 on facebook. That very afternoon we have had a one person trying it on!

This is a trial to see if works for everybody. You asked for it, we listened (again), so let’s see how this goes.

Happy Halloween Shopping.

We have moved with the times again after a customer came up with a great idea; ‘Can we have E-Vouchers’ or electronic vouchers? Yes, thanks to Roger, you can indeed now buy online and use the vouchers, you can print them out for yourself to give them as a gift.

Click the images below to take you to the WebShop pages where all the instructions are there for you.

Have a great Halloween, Stay Safe & Take Care.

  1. Wow, you guys really go out of your way to really help customers, listen and act on it. I bet you will still get people moaning about something. I think in today’s world nothing will ever be good enough unless it’s free and delivered for nothing. There will be people taking the pi$$ for sure, I hope you catch them and give them the C button.
    I wish you guys all the best.

    • Thanks, we try our best but still people want more. We are an online order company now, yet people still want to ask us how to fit parts etc. Do these people ring up Argos, Curry’s, pc world, Honda, Ford, Aston Martin, McLaren, Toyota, rolls Royce etc if parts don’t fit? We suspect not.


  2. Glad to see my welding isn’t in a class of its own 🙂

    Question, is Holley and Edelbrock now one in the same?
    Thanks for sharing.

    You really don’t need to do free postage in my opinion, I think it’s a cheap price to pay to get your parts delivered to your door in a couple of days, don’t even have to get off your arse for Christ sake. Some people are just tight arsed bastards who no matter what you did will moan.

    • Hi John, thanks very much for the comments and support. It appears we can’t win no matter what we do. We shall see how it goes.
      Already people are buying two separate orders on the same day for free postage. We can spot these people a mile off. This could be a very very short lived trial.
