October 18:

October 27:
Hello! I've finished the transfer box last week. Everything it's OK. Be sure, as I will need, I will call upon your services .Thank you again. As you asked, here is the picture of the car in front of the my garage. A good day.

We appreciate the nice words Nicolas, Thanks!

39th Annual International South Florida Auto Show

We just posted our first YouTube video. We went to the Auto Show to see the 2010 models and decided to put all the pictures together in a video for you to see.

The two most striking domestic concept vehicles on display are the Cadillac Converu and the Corvette Stingray (beautiful design).

I was unable to post any information on the transmission of any of these vehicles yet since the information is not available. As soon as it becomes known to us you will see it show up on this blog.

We hope you enjoy the movie and please leave us plenty of feedback so we may better improve future videos.
