Only if you pay me a lot of money!

We could do another Friday shop class engine. Before long I will be doing the Chump Car engine.
As you will hear from everyone else, the only guy worth a S%& is Mitch at Sandpoint Bug. He's really good.

I have heard of him. Does it take a long time to get stuff back?

Yeah, it takes forever. I can't figure out how he can be so busy.

Mitch is so busy for two reasons. One, he is the only reputable repair/rebuild shop that specializes in Air-cooled VW and Porsche in our area. Secondly, he has two businesses running simultaneously. He and his father also build a sharpening machine for dog groomer and hair clipper blades. It keeps them both plenty busy.

Mitch is a good guy, and his (and his father's) work is exceptional.

Mitch treated me right. And in a timely manner, but I didn't need a rebuild. He rocks. Hey Hubcapt did you hook up with my hub today?
