I SENT MY CAR TO MONDELLO PERFORMANCESEPTEMBER OF 2012 AND GOT IT BACK ONE YEAR LATER. I HIRED MONDELLO PERFORMANCE OF PASO ROBLES CALIFORNIA TO INSTALL A MONDELLO STREET PRO PACKAGE. THIS WOULD INCLUDE A BRAND NEW MONDELLO 455 CRATE ENGINE, NEW 400R TRANSMISSION, NEWSUSPENSION, BRAKES AND A NEW REAR END.

This is an up close and personal picture that I tookof Lynn Welfringers Drag racer. Notice the impeccable welding job on his headers. The other three pictures represent the welding job that Mondello Performanceperformed on my headers for 1977 Cutlass Salon.Image title

I could weldbetter than that and I've never welded before. Lots of cash for a shit job. Fanfucking tastic. I've heard nothing but bad things about this shop and here's another thread as to how shitty they are. Good luck getting your money back. Taint gonna happen. Good luck man. I feel for ya.

What's the matter with shops these days? Was it always like this? A guy had my Toro for almost three years! I finally flat bedded it away. Still haven't recieved a bill from him. Don't expect one either. I'm hanging the exhaust tonight.
