POCONOVA A++++ member


This is one of those stories I can't keep to myself.

Recently we were on vacation in Arizona when a deal came up for a bunch of parts I wanted to buy. The seller is a member here, great guy who I've had past dealings with and many long phone calls about B body Pontiacs! (He's a fan of them like myself.)

Anyway, the seller was not wanting to package and ship the stuff. He is in BC,  I was in Arizona at the time but I live in Manitoba.  Problem!

I came on this site asking if anyone lived near Maple Ridge BC and would be willing to do me a favour. About 6 hours later POCONOVA (Ken) responded and we began communicating as to what I needed. I would pay the seller for the parts but I needed them picked up, packed carefully (due to some of the items being rare, expensive and fragile). 

Ken went to the seller's house, picked up the stuff, did a great job packing it and shipping it. To top it off, he requested that I make a donation to this site rather than pay him. ( I did ignore his wishes slightly and at least sent him gas money!) As soon as I post this there will be a site donation from me on his behalf.

A public THANK YOU VERY MUCH to Ken, yet another guy we are lucky to have as a member here.

Was going to say it's a "CP" or "Canadian" thing... but we have a few US members that do the same with dealings down South. Have to say.. it's just the down to Earth members of this site that keep the parts rolling.....biggrin Guiness book of world records for the best dealings!!

It's nice having a place these days where you can 100% trust a member. And be able to give in return.

 

 

 

Now what are these parts? We need to know.

 It's mostly mine but a couple of things are for another site member who lives not too far from you and has some B body 4 speed projects on the go, once he gets done with his A bodies.
