    I’ve been trying to get this post in for 2 days…….Over 1 1/2 hours spent..Here goes again..4th time…….Out for a 55 degree Sunday ride in scenic Dutchess Co. N.Y. on the way to visit some good friends, race buddies..I’ve not been to their shop so I don’t know what to expect………Driving in I see 2 large Ranch style buildings with garage doors and a large lot with race car trailers, assorted pickups and a large motorhome all nicely parked and all very orderly…now I must say these guys cars are nice but I never expected what I saw…I was told this was a garage to work on the race cars but those words were extreme modesty….Inside this awesome facility is an entire race shop with just about everything needed to go from A to Z building drag cars…Totally neat, organized and professional…What a shop!!! I counted 8 cars, all GM, TOP SHELF well under index NHRA cars…..Donnie Carroll, Lee Valentine, Ronnie Orsino, Frank Genovese and Dave Piccinelli have the facility and the well rounded knowledge to turn out these A PLUS cars from start to finish…The engine machine work is done at another great place….RCE Machine in New Milford, Ct. just 35 minutes away..Lloyd Reilly owner has a full service shop and if you want your stuff perfect, he’s your guy ( owner of quite a list of wins and a couple of National Records to boot) The winning combo is all right here with these guys…Frame, suspension,engine, trans, body, interior etc………AND they all get along like family………Very impressive….In all my 45 years of being involved with drag racing these guys are on the top of the list….You can contact Lloyd and Donnie at 860 354 6976…..You will thank me later……..Don Kauer..
