Than again,, show me just about any industrial business NOT owned by whitey.. but we are all equal right? lmao..
Equality≠choice.

There's plenty of black small business owners. Not anyone else's fault but their own that they don't go into the machining business.

That ain't got shit to do with all being equal or not. They have an equal opportunity to open machine shops. Not anyone's fault but their own that they don't. The white man ain't holding them down. They ain't keeping blacks from getting into industrial business. They have the same opportunity as anyone else.

trust me I was being sarcastic.. I grew up in my Dad's machine shop back in NY. A shop where his partner was a black guy. Was a rarity in the 1970s a Black owned machine shop. They did get alot of contracts that were put aside for a minority owned business. And did fairly well for a number of years. Went out of business in the 1990s unfortunately his partner after going through a second divorce, still liked the night life, coke, women, gambling even though he was in his 50's at the time. my old man who was 49% owner, but not the "controling shareholder" did most of the work, but had least of the say.. when work got low his partner would always say, "time to go out and shine my black ass" would go to seminars in DC and so fourth. Again, they made a great team from 1970 to mid 90's but in the end the counter culture lifestyle did my Dad's partner in.. Ironically when they finally broke up the Black partner moved to Atlantic city and got a dealers licence working in a casino, by the late nineties we heard he died of lead poisoning.. In form of a bullet from a upset somebody he crossed. My old man tried to start his own shop, only to fail and go through all his equity on everything and closed up by the mid 2000's.. He's 73 yrs old now and works full time for a competitors machine shop.. Funny how shit goes..

Stanfield is right up the street. I know his brother and his brother's wife. My best friends mom is the one who set them up on a date so many years ago. Have known them 30 years probably. I used to always see Greg(& Aaron?) at the local strip in the Ctech Camaro but didn't know who it was at the time lol. This was probably 10 years ago.
you guys are practically family, after all your best friends mom set them up on a date. That makes you guys 5th cousins 4 times removed on your sister-in-laws parents side of the family

In the car world, that might be close enough these days. Damn gang, there's some 'low down' vibes going on in this thread. Opportunity itself, is worth a lLOT in life. A few decades back, that's all people asked for. Opportunity is a great thing and we should never forget that.

I bought a 582 shortblock from Ohio Crankshaft. They told me because I wanted a special compression ratio they'd have to order special pistons for it. Even with waiting on the pistons it only took them three weeks from calling them to it getting to my shop. I know low end stuff for you guys but it has been a great piece with no problems whatsoever.

My guy is closing down his shop due to age and some health set backs over the last two years. Been doing business with him since I was 18 years old. Always got first class work and all his knowledge and contacts when needed. Service was slow, but I never missed a race or opening day, might have been rushing, but I had it in time.

Never asked for a dime up front, and if I was short, I could bring it by later in the week. I have always been raised to know this is a CASH business and once you pay for it, you own it. Have never been treated that way, but never expected anything else.

Always got the parts back that were in my motor when I took it too him, and got the work done that I was charged for.

Toughest deal is he has referred me to a new shop, it's 5 1/2 hours away and I don't know the guy but he has a good rep. My guy says he's who to go to, so that's where I'am headed as long as they treat me right.
