I have bought many parts from Mike over the past 4 years and he is a great guy to do business with! He is helpful, polite and courteous!

MATERGURU- You are the worst I have ever delt with - YOU ARE THE TRUE MEANING OF "THE CHECK IS IN THE MAIL" No one needs your business!

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.
Well said ALmotorman !!
I was there yesterday and Michael is a amazing young man, who is indeed, extremely knowledgeable, and he and his wife run a First Class Business !!

I also had purchased many items from him on eBay and I tried stopping by a couple years ago when I was staying in Pigeon Forge and missed him. I sure wish I had gotten the chance as you guys did. I have also been very happy with my many transactions with him. He and his family are a great asset to our hobby.

Materguru,
Not sure who you are in real life, but you were not intentionally ignored; if you were. While there are many forms of contact the BEST is to call the shop 844-327-5988 and ask to speak to me (Michael)

Also I am happy to hear a little criticism, as it leaves the door open for improvements! I can also assure you you will not get "kicked out of my Club", although I am unaware of such Club. Sorry for the communication issues if they did indeed exist..

If you want criticism, that time we rebuilt my '47 Ford rear end together at your shop, I thought we could have drank more beer.

Seth--- Alcohol consumption may be prone to causing improper pinion bearing preload.. We will save it for the completion celebration next time!

I think that was in the Ford Service Bulletins, you are correct.

I typically go on Ebay and search on Michaels store and list what I need . Then I call directly so I'm prepared with my list.
Saves time for everyone.
