Who knows. I can pretty much bet that 95% of the posters haven't even done business with them. I like Hennessey. I think they are a bit overpriced, but it's America. He may charge as he so wishes.

wow.... Post 136 on the 300c forum from 2006:

Just for fun, click this link. Type "Hennessey" in the spot for party name, and select "defendant." How many lawsuits can you find?

But, I've learned and grown along the way. Hope JH has too. It was funny reading the comments about his doom tho. He's doing even more business now then ever before so. Not sure any of this has hurt him that much. He seems to be doing well.

Just remember that their is always 3 sides to every story. Business, Car owner and the truth. Most of the people that talk bad is because someone told them how bad it was. Then the story snowballs from there and blown way out. This goes for all companies. I had a bad deal with a company but others have good dealings with them. Maybe I caught them on a bad day. I have been talking to Vengeance Racing about doing work on my car and I think I'm gonna give them a try. Anyways you can't always make everyone happy all the time.

I agree with what has been said about companies going through difficulties at times. Thing is, with Hennessey there was a pattern of taking care of locals and hanging out-of-staters out to dry. My read is that this was a lot more than someone being slow to deliver because he was having a tough time making ends meet. There seemed to be a pretty consistent pattern. However, I never dealt with him directly, and only have opinions based on what I've read. Your mileage may vary...

GM did a great job. But nothing is perfect. I for one want to see about 600hp out of mine with a milder cam. You can't ever satisfy everyone all the time that why you all make changes to our cars big or little. If everyone wanted the same thing their wouldn't be any after market companies.
