 CCC Head Studs are

coming back to market!


The best in Head Stud manufacturing, correctly engineered for the Northstar application!


Hello, I am Tim Carroll the owner of CCC, I want to welcome you to our website where you will find honesty and integrity, shared by thousands of our clients throughout the many years we have been in the business serving the public.


Located at my personal private property in the beautiful Peninsula of Lake Lavon

3355 Rooster LN

Princeton TX 75407 

 Country living at its finest!


Special announcement!

Many have been aware, CCC has been in the process of switching ownership? Yes, in fact we were separating the company in two parts, between Restoration and the modern Northstar business. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, the pouring out of emails and calls we received, we have reconsidered the two halves of our company and regained complete control of CCC.

We ask and thank our present clients to bear with us as we regroup.

Our company will NOT switch hands and we are coming back bigger and stronger then ever before!

I would also like to announce, due to the hundreds of those who has requested our studs, we are bringing back to market the only correctly engineered Head Studs for the Northstar application.



"Answer and questions" due to a recent untruth by Jake Wiebe & Edward W Hooper JR

The life and times of the Carroll family & your friends at CCC.

Through all the years we have been serving the public, our location has always been established on our private property, whether we were leasing or as this property which is now owned.

Due to the overwhelming responses to our website, we have kept our location private and secure, giving our location only to our clients and to anyone who wished to make an appointment to come and see us!


Due to untruth being told by Jake Wiebe of NP, his newly found friend Edward W Hooper JR. about why we have a private location, and why we moved, we are forced to explain it again, so please bear with us as we persevere these false accusations.

Although we wish to make our location fully public, we ask that you respect the privacy of our home and family by calling ahead to make an appointment, this way you will not encounter a locked gate! And also have someone waiting to meet with you and then enjoy the tour

Our private location is fully fenced and secured by security cameras, giving you the confidence that while your car is here it is completely safe.


Our location is right outside the city limits, keeping us close enough for business relations, but far enough away to enjoy the country life style.

Country living has always been the way of life for the Carroll family, and we would never have it any other way. There is many Texas residents around our location and throughout the state of Texas who likewise enjoy the comfort and freedom of having their business located on their private property, it is a 'Texas thing'. So for those who claim we live out dirt roads in the middle of nowhere "is not only lying to the public", but have never been to a CCC shop, go figure? The proof this is an untrue statement, just come and visit us located in the Peninsula of our Lake Lavon.


Our relocation to Texas;

It has been speculated about reasons we relocated to the Great State of TEXAS! And for the reason written by Edward W Hooper JR.

I find the need to once again explain why we moved south and relocated our business to Texas.


What I am about to explain AGAIN, has never been a secret, we live in complete transparency for many reasons, first and foremost because of our honesty!

There has been two books written about the owner of your CCC, by two awesome men who helped me overcome the grief of my youngest son's death, of whom I am more grateful then I can ever express.

After an extreme struggle with this loss, I struggled for many more years moving to a few different locations, trying to escape the pain to no avail. we finally ended up back in Vancouver Washington, where this great loss occurred. After finding the help to face the demons that haunted me, I had to face them in Vancouver where I was finally "by the grace of God" able to overcome them and learn to live with the pain that cause so much downfall.

I spent the last several years using my experience to speak to thousands of people in many settings, therapy groups, colleges, churches etc... along with the two men who stood by me and who helped me regain control of my life.


During this recovery and being a survivor of suicide, I was able to re establish relationships with my family and thus began my awesome company of CCC, I dedicated my business to God and I have worked hard to continue down this path he set before me.

I should not have to explain this over and over, but maybe it is because God wants me to always remember the salvation he gave back to me and never to forget? And believe me, with this Jake Wiebe, his cohorts and his constant bashing of my company and my person, I am reminded all the time.

So I am fine with this no matter how I am face with difficulty.


My decision to leave Washington was for personal sentimental reasons and I knew it was time when I was driving thru town trying to hold on to the memories that I had with my Son in Vancouver. (NOT for the outright lies spoken by Jake Wiebe!) I had finally come to grips with the reality he was gone and needed to move on and make a better life for his mother (My Wife).

To my surprise she too had the desire to leave Vancouver behind and live again, so after we carefully considered it, we both agreed it was time to leave the past behind and find a place we would be happy and settle down by buying a home back in the deep south.

Jake Wiebe has put forth that I left Vancouver because I was on the run, he slandered and defamed me via online forums including, but not limited to his Facebook. Due to his Canadian residence we were unable to sue for this slander, but fully able to expose him for his lies and deception with absolute proof, which we did for the entire world to see. (More then once!)

We still have all the documented proof used against Jake each time he attacked us.



We had always wanted to live in Texas, and actually did for a short time once many years ago, so the decision was not just a whim, but something we both look forward to.

Some crooked people such as the owner of NP would have you believe we brought clients cars with us, this could not be farther from the truth, but we would not expect anything less from this deceptive young man, or his newly found friend Edward W Hooper JR.

If we had it our way, we would never have to discuss this young man again, God knows we have tried! We actually believed it was over until seeing Edward W Hooper JR. Ranting online about nothing true! And who was he enjoying his rants with? You guessed it! Jake Wiebe slandering CCC and me personally AGAIN, go figure?


Why we leased in Pilot Point before buying our home? 

Because we owned a small business, the only way to purchase a mortgage loan was first establish our business for two years in the state of Texas, this needed to be done to show we could succeed here with a mechanic shop, and let me tell you this; since the day we have arrived 100's of clients made this possible and none of them had a complaint! They were awesome and very satisfied!

So we leased a property in Pilot Point TX for the first two years we needed to buy our own place and NO it was not on a dirt road as lied about on Topix! Those who wrote on this Topix forum, know nothing about us, have never spoke to us, or been at our shops.


After spending two years in Pilot point leasing my shops, we were finally established to buy our home and praise God we did and we love it!!!!

We gave our Landlord 6 weeks! Advanced noticed (Two more then required!) and left on awesome terms, as always protecting our investments and family, we fully documented our departure from Pilot Point with pictures and videos! Both for memories and legal protection.

Because the owner was so kind and helped in our endeavor to move to Texas, I gave him the deposit as a gift for the friendship he had shown us.

Then we seen Jake contact our previous Landlord, asked innocent questions trying to trap and get information he twisted to further his agenda, we exposed it as soon as we were told of this action by Jake, but not before Jake told massive lies via his Facebook.


We announced this move to the world, both on our website including our Facebook page, we were so very excited, there was no way to not share it! DUH! LOL It is still exciting? All our clients were fully aware of this move and we kept them updated throughout the process.

Because we bought a property without a shop, I had one built and documented that process for all the world to enjoy with me! Via our Facebook anyone can search back to find the move online?

Now once again Jake, Edward W Hooper JR. Along with complete strangers via Twitter, the CF, Topix Forum etc... we see more deceit by these crooked people. These people have written that I moved without telling anyone? They say I moved present client cars to our new location 30miles away without telling my clients, These people are Liars and it is proven by our archives anyone can look up.


Not to worry!

 We are at home and enjoy every minute, soaking it up with my family, "Living" I thank God everyday for what he has done and continuing to do!

I have also acquired my second property in west Texas where I have always wanted to own!

However, my Ranch is not open to the public! LOL And that location is totally private. And is one of the most beautiful places on earth!


God has been good and the blessings he has given to me I will continue to pay forward, whether to my clients or things such as donating my riding lawn mower to charity!

Today we are finally home, it has been a long and difficult trip, we have settled down for the last time and will give God the glory for it.


As you can see and read about us? We are not just another mechanic shop, but a family business that has been tried and retried.

To Date; my life and my personal devastating experiences have never been a secret, I have been blessed by seeing others change their lives hearing my story? I would never want to relive what has happened, but I do thank God for the good that came from it.

We live by our honesty and enjoy sharing our success with anyone deserving of it.



May God bless you all

Sincerely; Tim Carroll



 I dedicate this new beginning, to my precious boy



Me and my boy spending vacation at crater lake Oregon.

Professional Black Glass Painting by Tim Carroll  




Let me introduce myself, I'm Tim, the owner, and the founder of CCN. Well, you have searched hard , but the good news is, you finally found us.
I would like to start by saying we all have something in common: the love for an awesome American automobile--the Cadillac. I am sure there are many reasons why you all have found my website and there are many questions that need to be answered. I will do my best to satisfy your intrigue.
Each class, each year, and each model of Cadillac draws a certain kind of person to its style. Personally, I see and feel these different styles and relate to each of them equally, so when you share your Caddy experience with me, rest assured that I understand your insight into your Cadillac. Here are just a few, whether it be a Deville, Seville, Eldorado, Escalade EXT ESV, CTS, CTS V, XLR, SRX, Lasalle's, Classic, Vintage, or modern--they all have their unique styles.
Did you know, there are so many models of Cadillac's I would not be able to fit them all on this page? One model carried many series.
There is a group of guys dedicated to each one, so the next time you feel partial to the one you own and indifferent to the one someone else owns, think about the Cadillac and remember: yours is just one style of a large group of many beautiful cars. To be a Cadillac enthusiast is to love all styles of Cadillacs.

I enjoy all your cars, and I love hearing your personal Cadillac experiences, so please feel free to share with us via our contact page.
We love posting your stories, so share and yours could be next

I am a small business owner, I too was forced to give my Tax money to these dishonest people and together we lost over

10 Billion dollars!

The nerve this company has had for so long, they give their patrons that shaft as soon as you walk through their doors and they laugh at you as you drive away in a car that just might cost you your life?


Over 10 Billion dollars of our hard earned tax dollars, I call that straight theft! Jake Wiebe says they deserve our respect?

I would not doubt it, he too has taken from countless Americans.

We are American and we believe in the first Amendment!

Speaking freely to share our opinions.

Our country, our money, our lives!


Disclaimer for General Motors.

We are an independent company and not affiliated with the manufacturer.

I would like to clarify the importance of knowing the difference?



They are the manufacturer of the famous Northstar failure.

I am going to tell you this because I believe GM is a Giant and will crush anyone in their path.

What I write here in this disclaimer is based on our theories and beliefs including our personal experiences.

I will tell you why this is our theory? One of my partners in this private business of mine is

an ex GM? And his witness of failure calculation payout in the engineering department is our

bases for our theory, so we believe they designed the engine to fail within a 100k mile range.

The secrete knowledge we believe this company kept was just that and --we believe-- they took advantage

of millions upon millions of innocent people just like you.

What we know? Well, is something I must keep to myself, due to legalities.


We are a separate company who has intervened

in the repairing of the Northstar with a solid permanent solution

to their failure. In the "New World Standard" these Cadillacs meant

something to American people and it is sad that an American Automobile

Manufacture such as this company could in our belief, do this to the American people.


The one question I receive the most is:

Why would they not recall this disaster?


There can be only one answer:

Our belief is due to the revenue, because the money is what mattered, not the buyer!


We are here to help, not take advantage, so with confidence I

can say with pride, we are in no way affiliated with General Motors.


Remember, this is the same company that took your Tax dollars to remain RICH!

While turning a snub nose to anyone seeking recourse.


We are not the problem, we are your solution!


Sincerely, the Cadillac Team


We believe in the first Amendment!

We do not believe in entitlements!

They seem to forget how they used our bail out Tax money to get rich and then build a car to purposely fail, Go Figure?
