Thank you Mr. Goss

Dear Mr. Goss,

To begin with I am a big fan!!! I just finished watching one of your videos titled Leaded fuel for older engines? I inherited a1949 Chevy Styleline and a 1966 Chevy Impala that I have been fretting about for some time regarding adding lead to the gas. Your advice in the video actually make me think that is what my Dad would have advised me to do since he maintained both vehicles since he bought them brand new. Those were his babies.

Many years ago, maybe around 1987 I brought a 1977 Chevy Caprice to your shop. I had just purchased it from my In-laws and I wanted to put it back to new. It was the two door model with that fancy rear window. I had it repainted and it was a beautiful chevy!!! Anyway, your crew gave it the once over and came up with a fairly long list of things that needed attention. I said OK do everything on the list. The mechanic seemed a bit surprised but of course agreed and I left the car at your shop for 3 or 4 days. To make a long story longer, I ended up bringing the car back 13 times. When it was all over I received a package in the mail with a card signed by everyone at your shop thanking me for my patience and a box of some fancy pretzels. Having previously seen you on TV I felt confident that eventually you would find that last leak which turned out to be a leaking valve on top of the transmission. I drove that car until 2005 without any problems and sold it for what I paid for it. So thank you for that too. :o)
