Finding a fully-equipped speed shop in Northeast Ohio isn’t quite as easy as finding one in say, Houston, Texas. With pot-holed filled roads, snow on the ground for six months out of the year, and much of the state either being too rural or too urban, it can be difficult to find a car builder or tuner for your performance ride.
Just over a year ago, a little shop called, Smokey’s Dyno & Performance has sprung up in the Akron area, about 20-minutes outside of Summit Racing‘s home base of Tallmadge. Offering tuning, customization and modifications for all types of vehicles from classic musclecars to exotic imports, it’s good to know there’s a shop for Akron-area locals that cater to their needs.
On July 25th of 2015, they’ll be hosting a Cars and Coffee event at their shop. Don’t forget to check it out!
