I'm on the bandwagon with all the posts. Buy anything you can from Micheal. He's young, knowledgeable, fair. Hats off to Danny and Sharon (his parents) and his great wife and relatively newborn...all of which are involved.

YES, THIRD GEN AUTO are the easiest company to deal with especially international purchases. Keep up your great work Michael and family. I have bought many items from them. Michael is the current president of THE EARLY FORD V8 CLUB OF AMERICA. Regards, Kevin.

I agree with every positive comment that's been posted on Third Generation Automotive. Every business transaction that I've had with them has been very positive. In addition to his fine parents helping him in anyway they can, I would also like to mention his wife Jane, who's right in there by his side answering the phone, doing packaging, shipping and invoicing. A totally great family operation in my opinion.

I visited Third Gen Automotive's place of business in person. I'm also a regular customer via mail. Their prices are very fair and shipping cost are cheap. Fast, friendly, reliable service. I even went out to lunch with them! You won't find a better V8 parts source or friendlier folks, any place else. I'm a very particular person and Third Gen Automotive impresses me.

Hi Everyone. Back in 2016 I commented that I hadn't joined the ranks of happy customers worldwide. Since then I did some work on my '35 and the Driskell crew at Third Gen Automotive in McMinnville TN have been superior in their assistance! The parts are top notch, real Ford stuff many times. I needed a starter switch and got unbelievable service. There are too many bits to mention, but I have a new go-to vendor.

Nobody's mentioned it but Third Gen Automotive also does rebuild work on things like rears, trannys, carbs, dizzys, fuel pumps, and engines. These folks are really knowledgeable about our old junkers!

Look 'em up!

I have been following 1935fordtn on EBay for several years. The volume of parts they have available constantly amazes me. Especially NOS items. Have made several purchases and always been very happy with them. Keep up the good work!

I've also bought from them on ebay and I'm kinda worried they might not make enough on those ebay sales sometimes.

A few days ago on a trip to east Tennessee, I stopped by Third Generation Automotive to meet Michael Driskell in person and to see his shop. He is a remarkable young man.Ö.extremely knowledgeable and helpful. His shop is huge and Iíve never seen so many early Ford parts. He sells, repairs and rebuilds parts, engines, transmissions, differentials, etc., and does restorations. He has a huge eBay Store online parts business and is the current President of the almost 8,000 member national Early Ford V8 Club. Not to mention he is married and a parent. He is one busy guy.

I’ve just received another box of stuff from Mike. He’s always been very reliable, well packed and never made a mistake. Combined shipping to keep costs down. Not much else to say but thank you Michael.
