Have closed a few deals with Phil and they've always been legendary transactions. Surely one of Teamswift's finest... I wouldn't hesitate at all telling you he's top notch :thumbsup:

Can we also consider him as a TS mentor? A couple of times I have called him for advice from Washington!

heh ,
Phil ... patience of the ages...
He found and got me what I needed ,
shipped & received .. I think it was still warm...
consoled me on what the mechanic did/didn't do
and has been guiding me through each phase one step at a time ..

If you run into him & he has what looks like a keyboard tatooed on his forehead ...
That would be my fault ..
I am sure he is banging his head against the computer every time he reads
my PMs & yet he always gives good advise and " sees " where I need to go next .

Phil N Ed represented my first real interaction on the forum, and personally embodies all the best qualities this forum has to offer, especially for the newbie that I was last year while struggling with the trials and tribulations related to Copper Top's overhaul and subsequent rebuild.

Yeah, while I see the occasional razzings that go on between some of the more grizzled veterans here, he actually set the standards that I try to follow in the posts that I leave on this forum. :)

Phil N Ed is an amazing guy, and his wife is really a true gem.

He's been patient, he's been very helpful with his advice when it comes to these cars and many other 'topics'.

Everything he sells is better than described, even though he pumps the pictures like they are porn and describes them with easy to understand yet complete descriptions.

Hundreds of dollars of items have passed through his hands to me. I've been burned before, so it was hard to trust someone, but he is someone who keeps you wise to the idea that are decent people out there on the internets.

It's only 1641 miles, one way to go visit the old guy and his wife in the mountains but one of these days, I'll make that trip for some mint wiper motors. :lol:

A detailed, thoughtful, honest man with integrity - that is a rarity these days!

I finally got something from Phil N Ed.
The lower flywheel cover I was missing.
A real class act. I will buy from him again.
The right part the 1st time.
Fast shipping and good packaging.
All in all a really easy transaction.
Thanks Phil N Ed.
