Had to search all over the place for it... couldn't find it on my order confirmation or elsewhere. Found it in the Google cache, it had (310) 362-0253. Obviously it could have changed since then, but it's worth a shot.

Re: Important

Just when you think you've had a shitty day.....it could be worse. A guy i went to school with just restored a 69 TA. Tranny line popped while he was driving today and it burnt to the ground. What a shame!

Re: Important

that really blows

And that is why I always carry my fire extinguisher... I should carry more of them actually. I don't have to worry about ATF anymore, but a gasoline fire is even worse.
