Brought my 82 Corvette in for tune up. Awesome professional shop. The owner Rob is very knowledgeable and pricing was good. Finally found a shop that specializes in performance and knows what they're doing. Highly recommend them

Stage 1 is the best! Stage 1 combines new school technology with old school craftsmanship and integrity. Rob, Dan and the whole crew at Stage 1 are equally competent working on my vintage 1969 MGB V8, 2012 Porsche Cayman R, as well as 2012 Hemi Durango RT. They take pride in their work and their prices are very reasonable.
