LHG saw some pictures of my son's VW toy collection in the gallery and contacted me. It seems the makers of the Johnny Lightening toys made a copy of Brian's Bus and gave him quite a few for personal use. Brian offered one for me and even autographed it. I don't even think the ink on the check had dried when the Bus arrived in the mail. The look on my son's face was priceless.

Thanks again, Brian!

I've bought, sold, and traded with Brian as well. He puts on a great show down in Paso as well.

I needed some sheet metal for my '66 Kabriolett. Brian was more than accommodating cutting out some much needed sheet metal for rust repair and his prices were extremely affordable for my shoe string budget Wink

I bought some Barndoor parts fromb Brian, we worked out a package deal that was very fair. He also drove about 40 miles to deliver them to me! Will do more transactions with Brian in the future.

Well, I just opened up my pre-55' beetle apron from Brian. To say he down-played the condition, is an understatement! This thing came out of a time-capsule from 1953! WOW! I can't believe the condition it's in! Thanks Brian! Great packaging, fast shipping (as fast as USPS can be!). You know you gave me a deal....and I'm definately apprecitative! If I can ever help you out, you know I will! Thanks!

I bought a Westy from Brian a few months ago. He worked with me on the price, was extremely patient waiting on the bank to get the funds moved around, and even included some unexpected surprises in the bus Very Happy . The bus was very well represented and my wife and I just made out first camping trip in it. 700+ miles without any drama. Brian is a great guy and an amazing seller. Highly recommended. Thanks Brian!!!

Hey Dan, I was wondering how it was going. I'm glad the bus is working out for you. 700 miles was a pretty gutsy trip! That bus is so well documented it's one I may regret selling someday, isn't the binder with all the paperwork fantastic! I had fun putting that together.

Hello Brian,

Thanks a lot for your quick reply and fast shipping the item to Japan.
I'm owning a '59 Lowlight and collectiong related items. So, the nose badge is really interesting me and now it's my lovely item.

I like the item itself and also its history like receipt so to call like story of the car and parts.

I can do imagine lots of things and story... so, this is fun!!

Thanks again for your international deal with me.

Best regards,

Yoshi

I bought from Brian 2 NOS Okrasa cranks. He was very diligent with my emails. Once we set a deal everything went very smooth, he even send me pictures on the package before dropping to the mail. He also worked the least expensive shipping to me. You should notice that I am overseas. Everything came perfect as described. I recomend him for your valuables !!! Very Happy

I've bought a lot of things from Brian over the years... And sold him a few things. He's honest and fair. He spends a lot of time helping others and I respect that. He's a retired fireman. I recently purchased some 1959 356 rear bumper overriders that were exactly as described.
