Update to the drama llama Camaro
Shop in question seems to have closed up, and likely facing lawsuits from others. As usual no response to any of my inquiries. Rumor has it he was robbing Peter to pay Paul...
My car likely sits outside, with no engine and probably no differential installed (and some valuable parts somewhere in the shop - upgraded radiator with hoses, MCS 2wnr coilovers with Vorschlag camber plates were in the trunk, but who knows now)
The engine - which is worth more than the car at this point, is in the care of Modern Airflow Designs - Trey is a standup guy and is going to let me pickup the engine when it's ready (maybe this week), and is going to deal with the other guy for whatever he is owed. Camshaft pending install once it's delivered from TSP.
I need some advice.
-Help picking up the car, and the engine (I hope to find a shop willing to do the install that can maybe help me with pickup also)
-How would you go about the pickup of what amounts to a rolling chassis from a shop that you can't contact? That has a gate that is likely locked? Do you know the specific Texas laws about this? I expect this might be a contentious situation with the car, I owe nothing to the shop, in fact he will owe me some of the pre-paid money for not completing the job (not going to hold my breath on that one)
Also - shop recommendations? Don't care where in Texas, as long as they aren't shysters.
