I'm going to add BEEK to the list of board members that did me right. He rebuilt my cylinder head, and gave lots of advice when installing it, and trying to figure out my overheating issue.

I want to add John Erskine, "spiderparts" to the list. We tend to focus on the suppliers of new parts, and there are some excellent ones of course. John is a gentleman and has treated me with honesty and professionalism. He offers an assortment of quality used parts at good prices and has been a great help to me keeping my Spider going and getting it updated too.

Nice to see a thread that sings the praises of Fiat vendors and people.Nice job,Maytag.I try to buy from allour vendors,and have done business with nearly all that have been listed.I have never had a negative experience. I just returned from FFO,and am amazed at how many people have a passion for these often misunderstood and criticized cars.Remember that these vendors are trying to make a living ,by selling to a very small group of owners.However,I see them sitting together at the same table at our banquet.The Fiat vendors and owners are an awesome group!

Hey George,This years FFO was awesome.The Chi-FLU people did a fantastic job,and we had around 150 cars,new and vintage.I will get off my a@# and get some pictures posted.I posted a video and a panoramic shot in ''events'' on this site.
We haven't confirmed next years site,but there is a strong proposal from Pittsburgh,to be part of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix weekend.So.if that is confirmed,am I going to get to hang out and buy you an adult beverage there?

I just have to give another BIG shout out for Allison's Automotive. Getting ready for my first car show event and the aftermarket 95 amp alternator started eating belts. Turns out the front housing was cracked causing a wobble. Mark and company shipped a new front housing out post haste. Received it and installed it this afternoon. YEA!, I will be going to our first show. Awesome service! Cannot say enough good things :mrgreen:
