Especially when it comes to a numbers matching or special build.
Thanks
Chris
Chris that's awesome - yep that's Doug. What a nice guy - no one has a bad thing to say about his business and he's been here decades. It will be a big loss when he decides to retire. I recently dropped off a gm block heater to be added and Doug told me they found a crack in one of the cylinder heads - my lip started to quiver then Doug tells me "we had the same casting number sitting on a shelf so I told the guys to grab it and keep building" - gotta love an old school machine shop!

Shoot me a pm when headed to ABQ - I'd be glad to meet up.
