Default best florida performance builders

I will be heading to Florida for spring break next week and wanted to know some good performance builders, riggers, and dealerships I should stop at. I will be staying in Anna Maria, between Tampa and Sarasota, so almost anything on the west coast is doable. I know Spectre is down there, but what else?
I havent found a good schedule of poker runs, so info on where and when would be good.

Sonic is in Hollywood, and I've heard it is a nice facility.

On the west coast of Florida you have; Sutphen, Nor-Tech, and Donzi.

On the east coast of Florida you have; Active Thunder. Cigarette. Pantera. Sonic, Apache, Velocity.

I'm sure that will keep you busy!

Custom builders with lots of racing history on the West coat of Florida:


( although I do like the new Donzi 38ZX. Going to have to take a test ride to see if it meets my criteria though...)

Also you left out Velocity in Orlando if you don't mind a small commute. (Someone owes me a ride in the VR1 ; )
