He is a great guy to deal with, great guy to hang with. Picked up several items from him and they were in great shape.

Went to Oscar's and had a few "soda's"

Image

He was riding his 4 cylinder bike: Suzuki GSX "R"...damn thing flies :!:

We were talking about SSGTi's and he showed me some parts he had for sale.

I 'stole' some parts from him (he's real nice on the price, Brice) and now have a killer sound system in one of my cars.

Oh, was my wife surprised when I picked her up from work.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Would I do business with him again?

I think he'll stop by with some more sodas, and we'll change his rear brake pads. Hopefully he'll bring some more DOHC parts, so I can really go broke this time!

Yeah. He's a great one to get parts from...............thanks, Big O

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

Once again, hit up Mr "O" for some DOHC parts.
It was a pleasure doing business with him.
The prices were low, and the terms were right.
If you are in the L.A. area, he's worth doing business with, as he doesn't like to ship.
Thanks, Oscar!

7 months later, and I'm still buying parts from him.
He installed some projectors on his car:

and sold me his old OEM headlights.
Highly recommend him, as usual.

Two years later, and I'm STILL buying odd ball parts from him.
He is patient, easy to deal with, has some decent MK2/3 parts, has a high regard for our vehicles, and walks the super clean junkyards of Los Angeles once in a while.
So if you are in need of a certain part, he might be a 'go to' guy.
His GTi is pretty clean, and he appears to be a person of great integrity.
Even if you don't buy parts from him, check out his threads.
Thanks again, Oscar.
