Air Flow Research sits down with Doug Aitken and Senior of Prestige Motorsports, located in Concord, North Carolina. As one of AFR’s top dealers, they are best known for exceptional engine building and custom car fabrication. Doug talks about the shop’s early days operating out of a two-garage, and now nearly a decade later they have become one of the best builders in the business.
Prestige Motorsports builds and develops mild to wild engine combinations, provides expert knowledge of performance related parts and packages, and builds some of the most popular hot rods and kits cars available today. An avid user of AFR cylinder heads, Senior attributes the quality, brand loyalty and performance AFR consistently provides as the reasons why it remains one of the shop’s most-trusted products.
“We keep using AFR products because they consistently do what we say they are going to do,” says Senior. “Being able to communicate that to our customers is extremely valuable.”
