I have bought and sold many parts with Russ and every transaction has been fast and exactly as agreed to.

I met him at the myrtle creek invasion and he and his wife are top calibre people. Truely one in a million.

I will buy from him again as soon as i figure out what i need . (and he will have it)

Thank you Russ and Happy Retirement.

Russ builds and installs simply awesome engines -- he recently finished and delivered my 1776 and it is exactly what I was hoping for: smooth and powerful, plus I know it was built properly and will be durable enough for a daily driver.

Highly recommended!

Russ rebuilt a set of 40hp heads and rockers for me. He did an EXCELLENT job for a very reasonable price, he knows his VWs. I would definitely do business with him again in the future.

I just got a thermostat from Russ, fast shipping at a good price, he even tossed in a t-stat bracket, to my surprise!
I would gladly buy from him again!

I had a chance to go straight to the source, while hitching a ride to the Type 3 Invasion, and made a massive score of parts for my 72 Super and my son's 65 Beetle. Russ was playing Monty Hall -- Let's Make a Deal! Door panels, quarter panels, kick panels, interior mirror, fuel sending unit, floor mats, and an exterior trim kit. All brand new and in perfect condition. Whatever you need there's a chance Russ has it, and you won't be disappointed.

I ordered a late model cooling fan and got it without a hitch. Even after some mind changing on my part. Thanks Russ.

Just another positive word to say about Russ. I needed a hard to find Type 3 part. He had it, sent it right out and it was a very fair price.

I just wish every seller was like him.

Thanks Russ.

I purchased a fuel pressure regulator from Russ two weeks ago. His price was right and the delivery was extremely punctual! I've read several other comments/complements about Russ from other buyers & feel very comfortable coming back to him in the future.

With all the positive feedback Russ gets, I shouldn't go into the detail of my dealing with him. Let's just say he isn't too keen on customer support. I will never give Russ another dime, nor heed another promise he makes.

So it goes.

He doesn't need to make my purchase right. It's way too late for that. I believe my patience has run out at the right time.

Keep my money and go [email protected]^# yourself, Russ. Making fun of my purchase from you in chat a couple weeks back only makes it harder to take you seriously. I thought you might try to make it right at that point.

Asking again for my mailing address was a nice touch as well.

Not delivering on the promises you made to me is enough for you to lose my trust as a customer (person) forever.

Have a nice day.

And potential customers, if you have already, don't ever trust Russ at his word again. It's nothing but a delay for inevitable disappointment.

Monkey, more details would help us understand your situation.

I bought an air flow meter that was bad from the Bentley ohm test in June. He told me he'd make it right a few times. He even told me he had another one that tested good and he'd get it out to me. Still waiting.

Buy used parts: expect junk. Thanks for the lesson.

I only sought his expertise because Tram advised me to try him for a good part at a good price.

I got a good price. That is all.

I spaced you off. Sorry. I forgot all about getting it shipped.
PM me your address, again, and I will get it out tomorrow.
You said you were not in a hurry because the car wasnt where you could get at it.
I never made fun of you in chat.

When I mentioned to Dave that I had no running VWs at the moment, you posted, "Yeah, because I keep forgetting to send out his part." To me that was you mocking me. Have you seen me in chat since?

That was my joking way of making fun of myself for not shipping the part.

Your part went out priority mail today. You should have it Monday or Tuesday.

I am extremely sorry about my screw up.

And, BTW, I would like the old one back. They do have core value to the rebuilders.
Parcel post is OK. Cheapest way.

Fair enough. PM me your address if it isn't on the shipping label.
