Hi Sandy, thanks loads for passing on your experience, I’ll do my best to hold the swelling of my head to a minimum. I like your idea. As a matter of fact, I’ve tried it in the past with the only feedback coming from the guys who were afraid their wives might see just what kind of dough they were dropping on their toys, so that info kinda fell by the wayside. But what the heck—might as well give it a try one more time. I’m thinking of a source box type of thing with part numbers and the retail parts price at the time. Anyway, thanks again for the suggestion, it’s always great to hear from ya as well! RIZ

(For the sake of full disclosure, Sandy’s an old friend and customer of mine back from my days as a GM parts counter salesman in Connecticut.)
