These are companies that are sponsoring one or more of the vehicle builds you see here. These are also companies that have products that I would have used and recommended with out the sponsorship. You will never see a company represented here just because they offered me something free or cheap. These are quality products that you know you can trust.
You can find Toyo Tires on the majority of the fleet, and this isn’t by accident. The R1R is an absolute favorite tire of mine for cars that are built for the fun roads. For the daily drivers I use the Extensa HP. They have plenty of grip be it rain or shine, and seem to last forever. The couple of cars that don’t have Toyo’s under them? Well they just don’t have Toyo’s yet. They will.
I have been using Exedy Clutches for years. Both in my personal builds as well as for customer cars. I’ve never failed one of these clutches or been disappointed with one.
While the companies listed here don’t actually sponsor me, they needed an honorable mention for one reason or another. Most of them are here because they offer outstanding customer service or products at a time when many others fail at one or often both.

While a shop that shows mostly European cars on their website may seem like an unlikely stop for “an 80’s Toyota guy”, it has never felt like it walking in. It’s not very often that I need help on the mechanical side of things, but alignments and tire mount and balance are things that I just don’t have machines for. I’ve had at least half a dozen different vehicles in for work, and have always been happy with the results.
