Default Roy Nacewicz

What was the outcome of Ray's business after his passing? Does anybody have a contact number. My understanding is someone purchased the business from the family.

Third Gen Automotive in McMinnville, TN bought it.

They are working on the transition right now.

Thanks for the information, placed my order. New folks are in Tennessee and a real pleasure to work with.

I sincerely miss Roy and our weekly friday night chats, dinners at Outback at Hershey, dinners at his favorite local restaurant and so on..

Losing a friend makes you realize its worth your efforts to tell family and friends how much they mean to you, as they could be gone at any given time.

A natural succession
I think Roy would be proud and feel his legacy is in good hands

Guy's, pass the word about Michael buying Roy's business and how to order. See post number 12. The transition has been complete, yet the Fordscript.com (Fordbolts.com) website says it's "Closed Currently Not Taking Orders". Michael has not been able to hack into the website to let folks know it is alive and well but now located in McMinnville, TN under Third Gen Automotive. He and Jane took a big chance buying this and right now it hasn't financially been worth their effort. We all know what happens to businesses that don't have any business, so if you think you're going to need some hardware and kits, place your order. I'm sure Roy is pleased his legacy continues, but I'm also sure he would love to see Michael succeed as well. Wouldn't that warrant an extended conversation with him? RIP

Well they offered parkerized bolts and kits. Good to me Roy was. Sure Michael will too. If its a website dispute. FordboltsLLC.com might be clear, or talk to the owner of the current. Maybe try royford pw.


Or just let everyone know its now 3rd gen ford bolt.
