    I am having problems with my car and desperately need a good, capable and honest SHO mechanic in the Worcester MA area. Please make some recommendations.

    I'd say ask Kirk D. for a recommendation in Mass but I'm not sure how receptive he is these days. Maybe Ron can hit him up?

    Email Kirk Doucette and ask him. He's over in Spencer, and still has the physical shop that used to house his Northeast SHO business. He's not out here on the Forum, he's purely Facebook.

    I tried Kirk but have not heard back from him. The show is still parked until I get this resolved.

    Seems like there are a lot of us in this area then. Let me know if Kirk does a good job for you, I'm in need for a mechanic as well.

    This is a shame. Back in the day the Mass group was probably one of the largest in the SHO community and alot of them did their own work and work for others. Most have moved on to other vehicles. If you dig through the old stuff and find member Fred Hurder Jr, you might drop him a line and see if he has any recommendations. I lost track of most of those folks and some have even passed away over the years.

    If it has not been mentioned yet, TASCA Ford in RI is by far the best place to go. I blew my motor that was tuned by Hennessy and TASCA replaced my motor, tuned it, and I got a 3 year warranty on the motor. They have a Ford certified mod shop.

    Also another spot that I have recently gone too as I live in Maynard, is Alpha Cars. not specifically a Ford shop but they are a high end shop and have a mod shop.

    If you can't get in touch with Kirk, then I suggest asking shops around your area. There's got to be at least one mechanic near you who's worked on SHOs before.

    What seems to be the problem with your car?
    Some of us on here are very good with trouble shooting.
