Cars/Parts Shops in Florida

Recommended Posts

At the end of the year, I will make a trip to Florida. (25/12/08 - 07/01/09) So I asked myself, if you guys have some adresses for me of parts/accessoires shops for Mustangs and Shelbys. :drool: (I just found Steeda.com and Tampa Bay Shelby)

 

Well my trip starts in Tampa, next stay is Orlando, than Boca Raton, Key West, Fort Myers and Dunedin. :happy feet:

 

Do you think it's possible that there are events, like show and shine in the areas where we are ? :shift:

 

Thank you in advance for your help. :mail:

There are several car shops through out Florida, but not many large show room type. I am in the Orlando area and there a few places you could visit depending on what you are looking for.

 

Powered by Ford is downtown and is a big Ford Racing distributor, not a huge show room as they do a lot of mail order. http://www.poweredbyford.com/store/

 

A local mustang mod shop Lamotta Performance is just north of downtown in Longwood. http://www.lamottaperformance.com/

 

If you want to get your car dynoed or customed tuned you can venture NW 30-40 minutes to Debarry and visit VMP, they are by appointment only. http://www.vmptuning.com/store/index.php?

 

As far other notable car oriented destinations in Central Florida, in Ocala next to I-75 is NPD, oriented toward early model car restoration parts. Catch them on a slow day and talk nice to the counter sales staff you can ask to see the owner's private collection (+100 cars, mostly low mileage). http://www.npdlink.com/ If by chance you are in this area around 1/9-1/11 NPD is hosting the Ford & Mustang Roundup (+1000 cars) and on 1/9 we meet in the NPD parking lot (AM) for a cruise to Cedar Key for lunch. On the return the NPD private collection will be open.

 

Just south of Ocala is Bid Daddy (Don Garlits) Museum of Drag Racing. http://www.garlits.com/

 

As far as shows and cruise-ins the best source for information is http://www.flacarshows.com/index.htm . In Orlando there is a cruise-in every Friday night in the Casselburry Commons Shopping Center 6:30 - 10:00 and there is normally close to 100 cars ranging to early models to late model muscle.

 

I am not sure where "Dunedin" is located in Florida, perhaps it is Dunnellon? If so this is near the Ocala area.

 

Enjoy your stay!

Don't go to Steeda for anything! They damaged my 06 GT, admitted it was their fault, and yet 6 months later they still haven't paid me!
