Default Texas Chassis Works............. where??

So I keep hearing the plugs for "Texas Chassisworks" on PassTime. So I go to google to find the site.
Once I'm on the site, all I can find is a plug for "Speed" & "Pinks".
No builds of cars, current, past or present. How disappointing!

What a crock! Does anyone know if the illustrious "Texas Chassisworks" really exists or if it's just more TV advertising??

You talking about Ken Herring's place? Supposed to be in Tyler Texas.

I doubt it, it just makes it look like they have an "expert" on the show.

Yes! That's (supposedly) the place.

I have a sneaking suspicion it's just another "plug" for Speed and/or Pinks.

Yes Texas Chassis works is a real place. Ken Herring owns it and it is in Tyler Texas. They have built several cars and also done repairs and updates on several Texas based pro mods, Ken is a great guy and has a great staff at the shop to run the place now as he is gone so much with the TV show.

To put it point blank........then why does the site SUCK??

If I was a potential customer of the illustrious Texas Chassisworks, where would I find testimonials, current projects, etc. etc.
Like I've already mentioned...it's very disheartening to go to the alledged site, only to find more media plugs for TV shows.
Kinda makes one feel like they've been "bait n' switched".

Don't know if this is the case with Ken but sometimes the best advertising is NO advertising and all a web site does is bring the types of clients you DON'T want.

Personally, I think it's just a paid plug for Speed and/or Pinks.

Did Smokey Yunick have an elaborate web site? I know of several shops that have the best web sites, although have a shop big enough for 2 cars and cant change a tire.
