I wouldn't worry about that. Today is suppose to be the end of the world anyway, right?

Ha, yeah for sure. I'm about to order a new PS pump and rack and other assorted bits. This thread has sparked my imagination.

ahhhh spoke too soon.

I was robbed!

I tossed all the crap out of my 500.00 box
clutch-check
cam bearings-check
rod bearings-check
tune up kit-check
etc.....


WTF! no cookies!

I feel just like Ralphie when he got his decoder ring.

Very well boing'd, sir. Van Cafe just rules. Make the pilgrimage to Santa Cruz and check 'em out. They got it where it counts.

Probably because the person who puts the cookies in the box, was too busy drawing unicorns, frogs and lama's to satisfy people's quirky requests after this thread.

http://www.mackenzieschocolates.com/ is just a few blocks from VC.
http://www.donnellychocolates.com/ is all the way on the other side of town(10 minute drive) if chocoholics want some nice treats after visiting the friendly staff at Van Cafe.

Bah! i just ordered some LED lighting and rear side marker lenses and forgot to add my rediculous request in the comment section!

i agree with what everyone is saying, spent a grip there when i first started the pimpage of the syncro...his comment to me while i was standing at the counter saying "and i'll take this, and that, and that, and...oh! that too" (5 Rhein wheels w/BFG TA KOs, big brake kit, german spare tire carrier, axle seals and light switches...etc)

"you just made my month!"

and seven years later, i'm still loving the VC additions to my van!

Van-Cafe rocks!

Been to their shop en route to home. Nice folks. Peter took the time to talk springs, tires, and politics with us for most of an hour.

I order stuff from VC and it's at the house via USPS in a week. Sadly, I cannot say that of any other supplier we've dealt with.

If you're in Santa Cruz, stop by "Falafel of Santa Cruz" - brilliant food reasonably priced. http://www.falafelofsantacruz.com/.

I like Van Cafe because their South African drum order arrived in Santa Cruz on Saturday, they shipped mine out on Monday and they'll be in Blaine on Wednesday. That's really quick for a heavy box.

They charged me the old price, too, which I didn't ask for! Wink
