Welcome to South Side Street Cars of Grand Rapids Michigan

Welcome to our website! This is were we spend some time mainly talking to one another about whatever it is suits us at the time. We are a group of car lovers that live in the Greater Grand Rapids area. We have a few members from out of state as well. If you would like to get connected to a group of fun, mostly laid back, car loving people, please take the time to REGISTER, and check out what we have to offer. Feel free to start a new post, contribute to an existing one, or just lurk around for a bit.

Most of us have known each other for a long time so don't be scared away by some of the conversations. [lol] We all know what we mean for the most part and it is meant in fun most of the time. I mean we are car people so the occasional bench racing and so on does occur. ;D

 Visner Engine Development is the best for cylinder heads and intake porting. Performance Engineering is another shop I'd trust to do the engine block.
If you can't walk the walk, shut up!!!

Excellent, I have a 406 sbc to build in my future. Sometimes a good machine shop that you can trust is hard to find. That's for your recommendations.

Well I pick up my fully machined 406 block tomorrow. Performance Engineering does really good work. Great staff, knowledge mechanist and top level equipment. You can't ask for more. I'm looking forward to this fall/winter project.
