    Default New Blower

    I posted a thread a few months back about a bad experience, so here's a thread about a good experience.

    I drove to Dons shop to pick up my new 14-71 yesterday. Its cool that an NHRA hall-a-famer built my blower. Don is a great guy. It was an absolute pleasure to talk with him.

    Im not saying what I paid.....but he gave me a killer deal on this billet rotor/end plates blower. The price could not even come close with any other manufacturer. And IMO this is the best looking blower on the market. I highly recommend his shop.


    P.S. beard-o-reno at the elks lodge is tonight! think I'll win reddest?

    The old school guys are the greastest guys in the world to deal with. They lived in a period when handshakes meant everything and word traveled faster and carried more weight than the internet. Nobody better than Don. I still miss Mooneyham every time I think about having my blower worked on.

    Glad to see everything worked out for you

    Don is good buddies with Amos Saterlee. (for us young guys... google him) Amos tunes the Speed Sports TFH. The Speed Sports TFH is a local boat. St. Louis. So... we all know each other as drag guys. Lou Osmon (owns Speed Sports) has some damn funny stories about Amos, Don, Don and Amos, etc. I just go in there and do a little stuff here and there. Not much. But some.
    Ask Don about getting throw out of his favorite restaurant over a $2 piece of lettuce. ROFL

    Have to agree, Don is a great person to deal with and stands behind his blowers and does not short cut anything. My first 6:71 was from him and then a 8:71. I had the pleasure of working with Don over 20 years ago in his old shop in Downey too..And yes when Gene was around Mooneyham was bad ass too but now, it just not the same.

    Kuhl is still around. He just went thru a blower for one of the guys that runs a GN. But to my knowledge his services aren't open to the general public. He is pretty busy with the restorations of old dragsters. He just got done with McEwen's Tirend draster. But yes you are right, he is another one of the best. The old guys rules.
