I would like to place on record my appreciation of the service provided by Ellie, Jimmy and the folk at Valley Gas Speed Shop.

They have never promised what can't be guaranteed, kept me constantly informed on progress of the parts I have ordered, and delivered on time and without fuss.

In my opinion, the service they provide is second to none and is so welcome in the hit and miss world of U.K Rodding.

I would recommend them to anyone. The result helps to achieve cars like this.

To Jimmy and Ellie and all the guys at 'Valley Gas', it is a massive thank you for the work you have done to my pop. I have had loads of good comments about the finishing touches on the engine. To anyone reading this who is in two minds as to who's hands you should put your pride and joy then let me tell you the team at 'Valley Gas' are the ones!

Have you heard the saying? "going that extra mile" Well the guys at Valley Gas go that extra one hundred miles, I was always kept informed in all things going on with the work being done through the phone and pictures on the website. When I popped in for a visit they always has time for me and coffee was made. I cant praise Jimmy and Ellie enough (Jimmy even brought the beers when I picked up the car)

Seriously would I use them again? YES

Am I pleased with the work that they have done for me? YES

If you are thinking about having work done yourself should Valley Gas do it? YES

Once again Jimmy, Ellie and all the team a very big thank you for doing an outstanding job on my Pop.

P.S Have had the car back four weeks and one trophy already

I have been into Hotrods and Dragsters since the 1964 Dragfests and have had several Drag cars and Hot Rods over the years: I decided to treat myself to a built Hot Rod. After several enquiries with the major hot rod builders in the UK, The only one that was prepared to give a time quote was Jimmy at Valley Gas. The others were quoting 12/18 Months before they could even consider starting the project.

From paper conception to on the road taxed and tested was an incredible 9 months, Jimmy and Ellie are the most laid back and helpful people that it has been my pleasure to know. They updated me on a  monthly basis with prices and ongoing work on the Hot Rod.

I have been to most Hot Rod venues over the past 12 months and the car has been flawless, Do yourself a favour, if you want any work doing he only place to go is "Valley Gas", I cannot recommend them highly enough. 1st Class service, fair prices and work on time. Excellent recommended +++++++++++++++++

'Valley Gas' is an exceptional and fantastic place, where the people are friendly and the work they produce is beyond superb. Since I took my first steps in the door I was greeted by friendly faces and bags, and bags of enthusiasm.  The guys in the shop (Gary, Owen, Bear and Clive) work hard to produce automotive perfection and I truly believe they love what they do. Jimmy and Ellie are two of the nicest people I have met. They have looked after me from day one and are always willing to go the extra mile for their customers and friends.

Dear Jimmy and Ellie.

Just a short note to thank you and the team at Valley Gas for the work carried our to fit my new engine, super charger and body work. It was after much deliberation that I eventually came to you but without doubt I feel I had the very best. The Car "LIL 37" was looked after and finished to high standards, proof of the quality was my two big wins last year at Billing and Doncaster. I would have no problem in recommending your services to any other potential customer, just pass on my number!

On top of this I appreciated your input into the build giving me access to the car at any time so I could be involved, even if that meant making the tea!! I feel I have made some great friends as an added bonus, not only you and the team , but other customers as well, Many Thanks again

I had already got a rolling chassis that had been built some years back and I began to look for someone to finish what was started. I went to Newbury to have a look at what Valley Gas Speed Shop had to offer.

After seeing the workshop for myself, getting Jimmy and his crew to carry out the rest of the build was an easy decision. It turned out to be one of my best ones.

One of Valley Gas Speed Shops many strengths is  they listen to the customer.! Weather your after a billet  hi tech rod, or a strip down salt flat style roadster, the car that comes out of the workshop is exactly as you wanted it down to the last nut. This result is also due in no small way to the fact that once your car is in the workshop, Jimmy or Ellie will keep you informed on progress, understanding that this is of great importance to the customer, especially if you don't live local to the Newbury area.

 I have seen for myself people buy their own parts in only to hand them to the builder to find that the parts do not match the application. Resulting in a whole lot of mucking about to get a part to fit and work.

The best advice I would give to a potential Valley Gas Speed Shop customer is, where possible, let Jimmy and Ellie source parts for your car in house, they have excellent supplier contacts, and know what will work on your car, and what wont. Meaning your car gets done with minimum fuss, and this is in the long run even cost effective.

Would I recommend Valley Gas Speed Shop to other rodders?
YUP! Mostly because there's not a lot they CANT do. Hell, if you wanted one, I'm sure they' build you a hemi powered wheelie bin if you ask them nicely.

Dave Batson, Maidstone

Ellie/Jimmy and the Team,

A big THANKS to you all for the fantastic work on our car, we think it looks just great. In our opinion the wheels and ride height are spot on for the style and year of car.

Just to have confidence in the car is a massive step forwards and you guys supply that confidence in buckets.

We hope you both continue to have great success and hope to see you again soon.
