Mike is a stand up guy. I brought a coil off him and the postal service sent it to Italy instead of New Zealand -He bent over backwards to sort it out and even offered to refund the purchase price . I will be dealing with him again-Karl

Hi Everyone, I hope this doesn't hijack things.

I'm jumping in here because I haven't done parts business with Michael, but I remember him very favorably from the Hiawassee meet a few years ago.

If y'all need parts, why not contact Michael directly? That way the auction house doesn't get into everyone's coin purse?

I'd guess being on that vendor's marketplace is helpful to Michael, but I'm also guessing that he gets a little tired of them taking their slice of meat with gravy.

I don't know, but get the idea, that finding and passing along parts, and of course identifying them, is one of his passions.

Now if you're seeing-and-buying on that market, you can ignore me.

I've bought two cars and a bunch of parts for them from Michael over the years, and there is not a finer person in our hobby. Well done to his parents, for raising such a fine young man.

Michael is a great young man and does a fantastic job as president of the Early Ford V-8 Club. We need more young people like him.

This is in my opinion the best / most accurate post thus far.
