Is this the guy?:

John Connelly of Columbia Two Speed Parts, Inc. (951-719-4077);
http://www.columbiatwospeedparts.com/
The web site lists the 951 area code number which is Riverside County, CA but the actual location is in AZ per the site.

I can not speak for either of the two young men. I only believe John is heavy into parts and modifications, where Dan is into building complete units. They both are still doing their thing, you can't go wrong with either of their work. As mentioned above John is in AZ and Dan in SOCAL

Perhaps you are asking about Joe Longobardi who lives in Temple City, CA. You can look him up in the Early Ford V8 Club roster.........

I will correct you. The answer is no he didn't. John lived close by Dan in Temecula, CA and then moved to Arizona. He hated the CA politics. So do I but it wouldn't make me move. John does not typically sell complete Columbias, only parts and machine services. Dan is your guy for complete assemblies, bullet-proofing, etc. He is a good guy. Just went through mine a month ago. Not cheap though.

Found some very good info within this thread.
I knew about John Connelly in AZ but I did not know about Dan Krehbiel in Temecula.
I have a Columbia under my '36 that I would like to get freshened up prior to putting the car back in service.
I called Dan yesterday morning (951-302-5922) I have made arrangements with Dan to go through my Columbia.. Lot easier to drive to Temecula from Ventura, 2 plus hours in lieu of driving to AZ.
