    In our search for "original correct NOS stuff" we sometimes find ourselves in far away exotic places, like corvette sites. Here is an article we wanted to share and hope you find interesting.

    I think that article is spot on. I've bought a few parts from the Dr over the years. Much has been written about his straight to the point demeanor.

    IMO, some parts of the resto hobby is just a pissing contest between guys with unlimited funds. :bowtie:

    I just tried to buy a couple of the 7" Tie Straps but he has a $20 minimum order.:(

    Yes! They come in different lengths. I need the longer straps for going around the heater hoses.

    Its nice to see those cars restored factory original at a show. It means even more when you start to realize what a nightmare it can be getting the right part.
