Website Changes

We've been working hard at upgrades to our website to make it even more user friendly and packed with more information for you! Here are some of the many changes we've done to :

New Navigation Menus to help you find your way through our website with ease!

New menus give you access to any page from every page!

Condensing information and combining pages so you don't have to click through as many to find what you're looking for.

A Site Map page which gives you an overview of website content.

Updates to Our Projects pages so you can see what we're busy working on.

Sound bites! Hear audio clips of the engines in our projects by clicking on the tuner icon on the right of projects containing sound bites. And, move your cursor over the tuner icon and you'll get the specs of the engine.

In the coming weeks, we'll be adding:

A new Motorheads Search on our home page, and at the top right of each page that will search our entire site and give you links to pages that contain the information you're looking for!

Photo Galleries for each and every project. We've got several up and active right now, and we'll continue adding the Photo Galleries until they're all up so check back frequently. Now, when you visit Our Projects - and select either Hot Rod, Trucks or Engine Work, you'll end up on a page with thumbnail photos of each project. Click the thumbnail and it will take you to a Photo Gallery page containing a brief description of the project and one or more albums containing photos for each phase of work completed on the vehicle.

Customer Registration will give you access to member pages, access to your own private photo gallery of pictures we take every step of the way in work being performed on your vehicle, making PayPal payments on your account, reviewing invoices, as well as information specifically for customers.

Customer Forms will be available on-line for those who register. These will include Work Authorizations, Scheduling Requests, Parts Requests, Coaching Requests, as well as Policies & Agreements.

Eye Candy! is a page filled with photographic car art and photos taken at car shows. A feast for the eyes for all of us dreaming about our future projects or the rides we've been longing for.

Easy-to-use Contact Forms for requesting information, services, estimates, finding parts, or giving Feedback to Motorheads.

We hope you like the changes. If you'd like to see something special, please let us know.

October 2008 Update

So many wonderful things have been happening at Motorheads. It's been a very busy year, and Guy and I have been working hard to continue our quest to give our customers the best service and product available. We're busy with building and installing performance engines, performance upgrades, car and truck restorations, body-off restorations and repairs.

We've welcomed many new customers with exciting rides: several Corvettes including an all-original '62 Corvette Roadster, an incredible and extremely rare '69 GTO Royal Bobcat which has won the heart of my non-interested daughter and turned her into a true "Motorhead" (now we have the difficult task of finding one for her project car so if you know of one let me know!), a stunning red hot '70 Camaro SS will be finishing up soon with a 400 short block that delivers over 500hp, the '70 Chevelle SS that just got freshened with a beautiful custom paint job with airbrush detailing, a unique '30 Chevy Dually Pickup in for a total restoration, and a one-of-a-kind '72 Lincoln Mark IV Convertible with quite an interesting history.

And let's not forget about the projects that are being completed with the help of their owners! The '71 Chevelle SS was a father-son project that began as an engine swap, turned into an engine rebuild and performance upgrade, which lead to a custom paint job. We'll be posting pics of this beauty shortly. The '74 Charger being transformed into a '71 Charger Clone's engine work is complete and will be going in for bodywork and paint by year end. The Model A, complete with rumble seat, was fired up with the owner present to experience the moment he'd been waiting for for over 40 years...what a hot rod she'll be! She's scheduled for paint at the first of the year and will hit the road when done. The owner of the '58 Desoto, undergoing a total body-off restoration, painstakingly located and obtained all the parts and pieces for what will be an amazing transformation he'll take part in.

Hot rod heaven!

We're excited about the coming year, and what great things are in store and look forward to more frequent updates. We hope you'll join us regularly.
