Mustang clubs and shops in DFW area

My nephew sold his 944 and is ready for a real car. He lives in the DFW area (Bedford).

Are there any local Mustang clubs and good speed shops in the area, so that he can find out what's happening there???


Thanks

There is Dallas Mustangs, Lonestar Performance, Speedworks, Fastech, The Mustang Shop, etc. Post up on DFWStangs.net and you should be able to find some shops to get stuff and work done at. Dallas Mustangs is alright, Lonestar is the same, Speedworks is pretty nice (friendly and good work), and I've never been to Fastech (Mostly F-body, but some Mustangs) or The Mustang Shop (Heard good things about them too). Hope that helps you out some.

I saw a SpeedTek in Bedford.

Any opinions out there, for my nephew, as to what's a better base to start from, to work up a car for fun and strip: a 96-98 Cobra or 99-01 GT???

I think he would be satisfied with either base. For looks, I like the body style of the 99-01 GT and they make pretty good power too. For power, he'll be able to get more out of the 96-98 Cobra, IMO, though I've grown to appreciate the looks of that body style as well.

In response to your previous Q, there are quite a few nice clubs around. I'm a member of the SVT Club of North Texas , which meets in the Dallas area. We are hosted by one of the areas larger (and nicest!) dealerships and have access to various facilities including a lift. Our meeting room is fitted with a chrome lift! Great for getting underneath members cars and sharing chassis, suspension, drive train and exhaust mod tips. Though SVT is in our name, we're a performance oriented club and are open to more than just SVT vehicles. In addition to GT's, we've got some members with highly modified V6 pony cars as well. Come on over for a visit!

That is one tight snake. I like the front suspension. Looks like Eradispeed rotors, MM coil-overs, but whose K-member???

BTW, you need a few more gauges! <j/k>

SVTVenom said it best up top

Try DFWStangs.net, very nice club, not only Mustangs even have a few token Imports, we meet every Thursday at Sonic in Carrolton, have a MMCM (car show of sorts) meet every 3rd Sunday of the month near Loop 12, plus many other things too. There are several shops with reviews by members on the "Local Shops" links also.

Dallas is without a descent tuner at the moment since Chris is gone, but Speedworks in Lewisville has a wide band Dyno and are a very friendly shop, DFWStangs.net has regular Dyno days out there.

Come on over to the site or come out on a Thursday sometime.

Actually, the coil overs are Griggs, as is the tubular K (the Griggs GR40 front suspension), with the addition of my own Koni Sport DA's. I'm about to get some stiffer springs and saw that D&D Performance has what appears to be a nicer coil over kit. Comes with a wrench to adjust the coil spring preload, as opposed to using an oil filter wrench (with teeth) to adjust the Griggs.

Yeah, I know I got a too many damn gauges. Actually, I'm going to administer some lipo-suction this weekend and reduce by one (pillar downsized from 3 pod to 2 pod). That should bring it down to a modest eight, LOL! Someday, I may even lose the dash pod and drop to a measly six count, but not today
