    Default Keith Black Racing Engines (Closed doors on fri)

    Keith Black Racing Engines has closed their doors this last friday. The business is for sale but as of now they are shut down. Very sad to hear this.

    The performance industry is not weathering well with this economy. A major company in our industry has pulled out of SEMA and PRI and I also heard the Childs and Albert closed their doors. I do believe tough times are ahead.

    My wifes business is a couple doors down from Keith Black. She said years ago the dragsters would come by the shop and park their big rigs on the street when the races were in town.

    It wasn't that long ago when Kennith Black was not happy when I wouldn't give them credit. I kinda beat myself up for that at the time.

    Sorry to hear that though.

    That's too bad. They built a mighty fine monster!
    Wonder if they'll get a buyer...

    That's too bad. I met Keith at my father-in-law's shop a number of years back before he died. He use to come by since his shop was just a few blocks from my father-in-laws. He seemed to be a really nice guy. Sorry to see that the family is having a hard time keeping it going.

    Life is all about ass, you're either covering it, hauling it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.
