I ,too, like Robert and also shop at PaP in SV CA. As for other patrons: "I need a light bulb, get the dynamite", There never seems to be enough daylight to fully utilize the admission fee. There's not an injector on the property. Primo is hit and miss You can be in line longer that it took you to find the part and remove it. Bring something to read.. Like an index of dealer parts prices.
Life is like a box of chocol- make that an engine compartment. You never know where all the hoses go. Unless you read the diagram on the hood. When all else fails, follow the instructions. Do it right the 2nd time.

I totally agree with the positive vibes heaping on Robert. This is a man who cares, not just about fixing things mechanical, but about going the extra miles to help people. Kudos for a job well done!

Hi,

I have to second that "woot woot ! ", really cool for that chance meeting.
What are the odds of that.
I’ve been driving a Volvo long before anyone ever paid me to drive one.
