Try the Attorney General's office in Oregon, I did in Pa on a rip off and they went after them real quick and got my money back to the bank. The CC co should immediately put a hold on his account if they don't I would go after them until they did. Good Luck

I think I bought my first Pertronix conversion free m a guy out in the Midwest called Gary Howard. He sold stock parts, upgrades like the Pertronix, and good used parts. If memory serves me it was Nebraska,Oklahoma - even had a website. A shame if he he is the same guy and has fallen to this level .....

Man, after reading that BBB report, this slime needs to be taking his daily showers right there next to ol' Bernie Madoff, with "Bubba" hanging-around to "ass-ist" frequently. DD

Nah Not possible. Probably getting satisfied because he lives close. Would not make a good G. Howard.

My thoughts align with The Ponzi scheme. Unfortunately I have encountered more than my share of sleazebag operators, ( Not aiming at any particular market ) during the course of my days on the streets.

I had an 81A rebuilt at Flathead City about 4 years ago. I delivered the block and parts in person and was given a tour of their shop. There were three "silver haired" guys including Gary working that day and there were a lot of engine projects in various states throughout the shop. Everything looked organized, clean and professional. They had some high end "hot rod" flatheads as well as stock builds in process. He said there were about 30 engines ahead of mine, but because I had 95% of my parts they should be able to get it squeezed in sooner. Mine was completed in 3-4 weeks I think. Ilive about 3 hours drive from Grants Pass.
