The guys there will spend a half hour looking up a two dollar light bulb to go in my front directional. Even had to make a phone call. Great bunch of guys down there. I walk in the door and say: "I need another part for the hot rod ." and they are happy to help, and even thank me for coming in.
The parts store I go to is pretty much like that. They WILL make it happen.

I feel the same way VIP is the worse around here and Autozone is a close second, if its not a catalog part number they aren't much help. NAPA guys will try to find a match and there are actually street rodders who work at the store and understand. SC
