This week we have completed a few cars along with more work on our very own Ranchero, we will have some more pictures next week for you. However we can share a few pics with you about an incident regarding a prancing horse, but not too much to show for privacy reasons, but a little more on that later.
Park & Pic
This weeks Park & Pic is a ’67 Convertible which has come in for steering pipes which were leaking and causing an issue. The car in front is Adam’s Shelby which has just passed it’s MOT ready for a few summer miles to go on it.
On the left here ready to into the workshops the coupe had been taken of the ramps.
With the car up in the air Yogi quickly found the leak which was on one pipe. As the reservoir was being drained it makes sense to replace both the top and bottom pipes. Not essential, but if one pipe has gone, those replaced weak pipe now become the strongest and will highlight any other weaknesses with another failure with the longer pipes.
This always a messy job and needed a bit of a clean up before the final tightening in place.
We have a loyal customer who recently sold his ‘classic’ Mustang and bought a couple of more modern Mustangs to replace it. The owner had booked a road trip in his new car but forgot that his 2007 Mustang was due an MOT. The car was taken to the test centre where it failed the MOT. Now the owner was in a predicament, road trip with no road worthy car to take. He drove the car straight to us and asked for help. As it happened, we had a pair of lower ball joints in stock. The owner left his car with us for a little while as we fitted the parts for him.
Once the work was done we called the customer to come and collect the car. He then took it back for the MOT retest where it passed with flying colours not long before they closed for the day.
The customer was over the moon that Mustang Maniac saved the day for him, not only did we have the parts ‘In Stock’ from our WebShop, but we also fitted the parts to his car on the same day to help him out, all without booking in first. This type of service is not for any ol’ customer. We have known this customer for a good few years now as we had always looked after his classic and now his modern cars. Being a loyal Mustang Maniac customer does have it’s advantages. As Mustang Maniac has the best supply of Mustang Parts in the country we can always get you the bits you need fast, but we can’t promise to fit them same day!
We have a great relationship with LEED Brakes and we are delighted that LEED Brakes have created an advertisement featuring Mustang Maniac as the UK distributor. The add below tells a short story about Adam & Mustang Maniac. We are proud to have it here for the first official showing in the UK.
Prancing Horse Meets A Pony
Ferrari’s logo is known as the ‘Prancing Horse’, the Mustang logo is referred to as the Pony.
All we can say is that the prancing horse came of worst and has gone to the great scrap yard in the sky. Not only that, but his prancing horse has the ‘carbon ceramic brakes’ which was a seriously expensive option on the super cars.
