Testimonials
Acton Custom Best Of The Best

I trailered my 1991 427FE Contemporary Cobra to NH to have Nick install a watts linkage of his own design. Nick and Bonni are amazing and very gracious people with a phenomenal knowledge of Cobra's. The install went great and while looking my car over Nick didn't miss a beat. Quite a few other issues were discovered and corrected by Nick while I was there. When we were finished, I tested out the car and it performed flawlessly. The wheel hop, shake and trounce that I had been experiencing were virtually eliminated during a few good hard launches and it felt like a different car. I'm quite particular with my cars and pleased to say that Nick possesses all the knowledge and experience that I look for when having my Cobra worked on. Thanks Nick and Bonni! Charlie Malo

News Article

Hello Mr. Acton, My name is Jeff Ferland. I'm a reporter with the Salmon Press and I would like to interview you for a profile article on you and your unique company Acton Custom Enterprises. I attended your open house Sunday and was very impressed to say the least at the beautiful collection of machines in your yard. We would have spoke more then but you seemed a bit busy and I didn't want to take up too much of your time while you were hosting an event. I look forward to hearing from you.

ACTON Exhaust

ACTON is a First Class operation all the way. Nick is a wealth of knowledge and very accessible to assist you even as busy as he is. I recently bought a full 427 Cobra undercar exhaust system from ACTON and as complicated as it is, it fit like a glove. Oh, Yes, and Bonni is a sweetheart on the phone, very enjoyable to work with. Thank You Two!! George Lyons Erie, PA

Watts Linkage

Nick, After years of talking about it, I finally added the Watts Link to my Contemporary. I should have done it years ago when I started talking about it. All of the shimmy in the rear end is gone. With the big FE there is a lot of torque and the car would run rough if I jumped on it hard. Now I jump and there is no sway, shimmy or rough running. It just goes. Good job Mate. Wasn't too difficult to install after we figured out what was different. Thanks for another great product. Dan

ACTON Tour

Nick & Bonni, thanks so much for allowing me to tour your facilities recently! You clearly possess the proper experience and a complete knowledge of the history, the systems and components of the Shelby Cobra. I am especially impressed with your ability to produce many of this car's more complex components with such thorough attention to detail, quality and the needs of your customers. The Cobra projects underway at your site, both contemporary and classic restorations, are proof that you have earned the respect of some of the country's top Cobra experts and collectors. Congratulations and thanks again for the amazing tour!
