Default Irish whiskey and blktie8 are having fun ..........

I thought I would post again .
I contacted Kim and Chuck of Charleston SC club
They recommended a couple of shops in Charleston ,but I have a broken valve spring.
Can't drive the car.
They contacted Bill Schmitt from the Hilton Head Island club
He recommended 2 shops with the help of Irish Whiskey a club member.
In the interam I contacted Nick Williams and Ferrea
Ferrea sold me the springs that failed.
Nick was going to send me new Patriot golds over night
Ferrea called me and overnighted their new and improved S10075 springs.( No Questions asked )
I haven't got it on the road yet but ,its close
H&H Auto (Jeff) has the car here on the island
I contacted GOJO JPilla and he recommended Nick Williams ,
This forum network really works (never forget your wireless laptop on vacation)
This is a big thanks to the clubs ,Southeast forum , Nick Williams who is famous for his shop and throttle bodies.
Ferrea ,Damn I was lucky ! It didn't blow the engine on the freeway.Motor has 19 k on it .
Thanks to you for the dual springs that kept it together.
Guys and girls it could have been a ton worse .

John From Michigan Hoo- rah

I had a handful of 13mm sockets ready - not sure what he meant when he asked me if my extension was long enough!!
Margaritas are for pussies - Tullamore Dew or Jameson's Black Bush are served here!!
