I've been dealing with this shop for years,never a problem.Its a real hot rod shop with parts for real hot rods.If your looking for parts for your japanese rice popper with lights underneath you should be shopping at Autozone or any other place that sells colored lights.
I have been a client of Santa Ana Speed since the the early
1970's. Larry has always treated me right.If they didn't have the part in stock they would get within 1 day or quicker!
Maybe someone posting is angry because Larry would not sell them NOS for illegal use!!!
place is a joke...really – wouldnt even give them a one...this place is run by drug addicts and the owner is a full blown drunk..dealing with him was repulsive he stunk like beer burped and farted and thought the was amusing. They have NO knowledge of late model performance cars and motors. Modular ford motor??? HUH? LOL..the counter guy looked like some kind of mexican skinhead and STUNK like pot in fact the whole place stunk pretty much..dirty, disorganized and cluttered to death. Everything i asked for was "oh we can order that" and there were many gangster types coming in with these steel tanks NOT the kind of tanks u find in auto applications i mean like CO2 tanks and getting them filled with nitrous oxide..theyre biggest complaint was there WAS sulpher in it and the request i kept hearing was "can u flavor my nozzz??" I know this is totally illegal and im sure the local authorities will be investigaitng soon..AVOID THIS PLACE for your performance needs there are other speed shops in the socal area, Team C in lakewood, Blairs in pasadena, BEP in orange, Fast Eddies in orange to name just a few REAL and reputable shops that can acutally help u with ur mod ford, late model hemi or LSx needs. Hope the city of santa ana shuts this place down soon its nothing more than a drug dealing operation with a parts store front.
You are all wrong – Ok, so I have been working with these guys for over 25 years. They do what they say there going to do. Never a problem in 25 years. Larry the owner is a great guy. Most of you people going to a speed shop have some kind of rice burning piece of crap anyway, shop at Pep-Boys. As far as selling NOS for Raves you must be joking. The runny nosed little punks are all over the place. Have you been to the drags lately? They all look like there high on something. BTW Santa Ana Speed has a warehouse down the street, they have access to hundreds of thousands of parts in a hour. Stop crying about the Mom and Pop shops that are hard to find. 14 kids to buy NOS does anyone believe this? Do Speed Shops need a A rating? Anybody buying parts thats afraid to get dirty needs to send his car to a repair shop and have it done right.
Raver hangout – They don't have many speed parts in stock and the place is dirty. When I say dirty I'm not referring to the filth on the floor but the dirty teenagers hanging out there to buy NOS. Total dump. Do not support this local speed shop. Out of the 15 people there I was the only one there to buy parts, the rest were raver kids buying NOS for parties. Total dump.
Santa ana speed center – if there was a minus star rating I would give them a -5 star review. Spent 10,000.00$ on a high performance motor that never made oil pressure.
Took it to them 3 times to fix and they crashed my car. Then they told me to pound sand-kick rocks, my car will never be the same. 6000.00$
In body shop fees & still the motor isn't right & they refuse to help me out. Basically a swift kick in the teeth! No way shape or form would I recomend them
Great place, also helpful for women – I am a women and did get some quotes from other places. They were straight forward and saved me some money, Great machine shop and wonderful mechanics. Nice staff, very helpful and polite. Would highly recommend them to anyone. They are a world of old car parts. Nice to have some place to go that has these parts and if they do not have them in the store they go to their warehouse and get them for you in a very short amount of time.
A good review. – Those were some serious criticisms in the previous review. I had the exact opposite experience. I found the staff to be highly knowledge, friendly and courteous. You said that "they seemed to be on some sort of dope." Yeah: it's called 4 cups of coffee in the morning in order to have that place open at that unGodly automotive hour. Don't get me wrong:
I agree that no one should ever be threatened (if that is how it happened) even though I confess I've worked in that business, and I've had one or two customers that I briefly thought of physically hurting, because they made me so mad. Thankfully, the millions of enthusiastic & way-cool car people made it all worthwhile.
AVOID!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Would not recommend.The guy's at the counter are Trashy and rude. They gave me the wrong parts three times,they seemed to be on some kind of dope. Not to mention I have had my bottle filled there about 10 times and every time it was short more then a couple of pounds.When I finally said somthing about it they threanted to kick my ass,They are some white gangsta guys. Have also seen them sell N2o to raver kid's for party's,Not good. AVOID at all costs.
