I lived on Schoolhouse Road for over 16 years.

When I was there that building you're in used to have a race car shop / performance store.

I believe you are referring to Chet's second location. He used to be up the street closer to Norwich just past Joe Casey ans Son's on the right on the bend in the road (small building).

Welcome to FTE.

Joining the CT Chapter and advertising on FTE are two totally seperate things. Advertising is only permitted by our sponsors.

One of us will have FTE Jason contact you if you would like to become a sponsor.

Oh, you are the doubters. That's the building. I can remember looking in the first overhead garage door. That is the one the overnight delivery guys had a key to, for deliveries off hours and there was 55 gal drums of race gas in there. Chet's Speed Shop goes back to the early 70s and was originally in the building down route 2 towards Norwich just past Joe Casey and Sons on the right on the curve in the road. It's a small building that might be a Beauty Salon now. After many years there, Chet moved to the building you are in and he was there for 2 or 3 years then closed for good. Other than Chet, there has never really been a speed shop in the Norwich/Preston area. I grew up in Algen Heights in Ledyard so this area I am very familiar with, but that was back in the 70s.

Ya CT Smoker , that's the building I remember.

mox-ct, when I lived there the building you referred to as Chet's first place had a muffler shop.
I put headers on my Ford Ranger and a Mustang muffler & tailpipe and then the shop made the pipe to connect the muffler to the headers.

I believe you are right. After Chet's Speed, I think it was a Muffler shop, then Beauty Salon, then.... not so sure. But Chet did move to the building the Diesel Shop is in presently for a couple of years, then he folded completely. I think mainly he folded because interest in speed parts dropped off after the Connecticut Dragway closed (Colchester Drags). And also partly because of the disposable aluminum 4 bangers dominating the highways. Of course, there might be other reasons too.
