Got an email from Manny saying Dave was taking over the business. Odd that the notice does not mention that.

I wish Manny the best, he treated me very well.

I wondered what was going on, I did a search on Facebook for Manny's own personal page and he has either unfriended me or simply deleted his account.

At first I thought maybe he got hacked or something.

No situation Boss , just wanted a change in my life and a change of career .

Not what all the haters want to hear , and certainly not what they have been spreading on the internet but hey f--k them and their hatred. .

Its funny how people that never spent a dime at the shop or even visited the shop like to talk as if they did, and those that like to stir the pot... well ......some people just need to get a life .

Finally , to all those that supported the shop over the years , a heart felt thanks .......Dave will do very well with his company
RS Autocraft

There is no more talented guy than Dave in this business in Canada , tuning , fabrication and design he is the real deal and the guy that made Dasilva Motorsports a success.

Please give him a chance .

Thats it , no more Corvette's for me , no more drama .

Bye now

Manny always treated me well when tuning my LS2 1936 Coupe. He is a stand-up guy.
Good luck with your new endeavor.

So sorry to hear about Manny leaving the business he started and seemed to enjoy so much, I purchased my car through him and he treated me very well. We also attended a couple of his annual fund raising events and enjoyed them very much. All the best to you Manny, i'm sure you will be a success at whatever you decide to do, you are a class act. ... Rob

Anyone know if RS Auto is up & running, are they still in the same location? Google only shows an RS Auto Clinic in Burlington ... if they are operational is there a phone number for them?

more than one post has been removed since the start of this thread - probably from the 'other' side. There's enough pie for everyone, cheap shots from a few not necessary.
