I was vacationing in the area of FW so I stopped in to see what the place was like. I have been a fan for a while and am a big car buff. My wife and I went in the front door and we were immediately confronted by Audrey, the office manager. I mentioned I am a fan and...

Seems like they almost always screw up something and act surprised about it. I am sure that the customers pay for the rework. I wouldn't bring one of my cars in there under any circumstances. He overcharged a guy $1000 for a 1972 Buick N25 through the bumper exhaust....

I find Dan Shorts reactions amusing. Playing poker with this man would be fun because he doesn't have a "poker face." He wears his emotions on his sleeve. His facial expressio...
