I'll try to reach out to him today. I PM'd him last week with no response. We've been in touch with each other about once a month, but I haven't heard from him

This the one thing I don't like about these forums; leaning bad things about good people.

Gary has done me a few favors, which I am grateful for, and I hope everything turns out good for him.

I'm afraid it comes with the territory. We like the old stuff, really old stuff. We like each other. We have found 'birds of a feather' on this amazing platform. But we are mostly older guys. I guess we could have come up with a more modern hobby and joined some 'gamer site' and the folks we interact with are 30 and healthy even though they live on potato chips. I thought about joining one of those groups last week, but then I remembered I was gonna be busy that day eating ground glass instead. With my collection of beater trucks, I would be 'Goslow Gary' for sure. I just hope my faster brother is OK and just busy with a cool project. And Godspeed Gary!

I have tried getting in touch with Gary but no response. I wanted to buy a stroker kit from him.

I have a car that appeals to younger, racier types, and a truck that is mostly owned by first-car youngsters. The forums for them are a nightmare of cussing, really, really stupid questions, and really, really bad advice. I gave up on them a long time ago.

Hoping Gary is OK!

It's The Performance Engine Shop in West Babylon NY 631-884-3278

That's the number I've been calling. It's the only number I have

I saw it mentioned on another forum. Really nice guy. Offered me help, a few years ago, with an engine problem I had. He will be missed.
