Hello. For those of you know don't know me, my name is Michael Tomaszewski (Jr). I have been around the business since I was born, and I have been a part of the community for the past 10 years or so. I got my first Buick at age 17 (1970 Skylark, 350-2) that I drove to high school. It wasn't long before the entire front of the car was rebuilt/restored and the engine rebuilt with the help of my dad and grandfather. What once was a 17.50 second worn out 350 became a 12.60's street 350. Ported heads, our intake, roller rockers, 600” valve lift, forged pistons, Crower rods, all the good stuff.

I went to college for mechanical engineering. I worked at Raytheon as a systems engineer for a year and General Dynamics as a manufacturing engineer for 4 years, all the while still coming into TA to help when I could. I came to the realization that while I enjoyed my job, it didn't give the same level of satisfaction that working at the family business did. I care very deeply for the company and decided to make the switch to leave GD and come back to work for TA full time and to eventually take it over when my parents decide to retire. For the past few months I've been learning our processes and working on making them better. We've been picking away at new projects as well as working to improve current ones.

Many of you admire and would love to own our legendary aluminum V8 block. Like the V6 block, it has revolutionized the reliability of the Buick engine. Where you once needed girdles and hardblock to make big power, the fact remained that every pass could be your blocks last. Racers no longer have to worry about if their engine will still be running by the end of an event, or if it will be in pieces. It's a huge weight lifted off of their shoulders so they can worry about other things, like winning. Even street cars benefit from the reliability, strength, and repair-ability of the aluminum block.


2018 marks our 35th year of being in business. That's a milestone for us, as well as the Buick community, so I've been working hard to devise something special for our customers. To celebrate 35 years of Buick performance, I'm offering 25 of our standard aluminum V8 blocks at a discounted price of $4500. This is a pre-production run sale, so all I ask is that you call and place a deposit to secure your block on the next production run. No more hardblock, no more girdles, no more hassle.

In addition, we have tried very hard to not raise the price on our aluminum heads, even as Edelbrock heads have increased in cost (we haven't raise the price on Stage 1 SE's in 8 years, despite the increase in material and labor costs). Currently, our heads are only $55 more than Edelbrock heads, which is a great value in addition to being a superior product. I'm going to go one step further and offer our Stage 1 SE Assembled cylinder heads for $2350, $115 less than Edelbrock heads. Both of these offers are good through the end of the year.

One final update. Customers have asked if we are going to offer an iron replacement block in addition to our aluminum V8 block. With the success of our aluminum V8 block and the supply of factory 455 blocks dwindling every year, we are investigating having a replacement iron V8 block produced to compliment our aluminum V8 block.

I hope these sales are beneficial to our customers and I will continue to try my hardest to provide the best possible products at the best price to our community. Thank you for your continued support.
