Do you have something you would like to say about Tri-C Engineering and their wonderful staff of seasoned professionals ready to design and fabricate your next Hot Rod or engine?
Recently the Burbank Road Kings came to your new facility and you had given us a great personal tour of your shop and all the fine cars in work. I was so impressed I called back and asked if my visiting New York friend Ray Kobel and I could stop in for a shop visit on January 23rd. We met with Mike Lawrence and had a super tour and were filled in on each car and the details of the work and unique qualities going into each car. Read more

Thank You for the great job you did for us on Charlie's Angels. The cars you built looked
wonderful, ran perfectly and were delivered on time and on budget.

"Rick Creese did a wonderful job with the suspensions on two of our Gran Torino 'jumpers' on
Starsky & Hutch.
We got seven jumps out of one Torino. It was done on time and with a smile. A real go-to guy."

Dear Sue, Rick & the Gang at Tri-C,
thank you for the wonderful car you built for me. It truly pushes the envelope for "Hot Rod" Woodies and as per most comments from admirers, the car is at the pinnacle of its class.
I enjoyed working with you on this project. Your professionalism, expertise and friendship made the building of this car as enjoyable as its receipt.
Is there anything in the design and building of a car that you can't do??
If a part is unobtainable, you simply make one. If a car needs a new body, well you just make one, UNBELIEVABLE.
Thank you for everything. I have truly been impressed.

I am a motion picture director and action/stunt coordinator for twenty-nine years, in thirty one countries around the world. I have worked on many very successful major Hollywood movies such as "Charlie's Angels", "The Firm", "Hoffa", "Stargate", "Galaxy Quest" and most recently as second unit director of "Planet of the Apes".
During the making of "Charlie's Angels", I had the very good fortune to meet Rick Cresse and his company, Tri-C Engineering, Inc. The sequence in the movie needed some Indy style race cars to be involved in a chase taking them from a race track onto city streets. The cars needed to be fast, powerful, capable of performing many extremely mechanically demanding maneuvers and above all be reliable enough to not delay an extremely large and costly production during an action chase sequence that would take several weeks to shoot.
The cars were constructed on time, on budget and were without doubt the finest specifically made action vehicles I have ever been involved with. I cannot say enough about Rick and his entire team. As an additional bonus to their extremely professional attitude, Rick and his entire team proved to always be fun and a pleasure to deal with. I consider Rick Cresse and Tri-C Engineering, Inc. my absolute first choice to design and/or build any motion picture action vehicles. Read more
