Only other guy to show up to the latest CO meet...I drove all the way down from Fort Collins, 45 minutes late. He was there, ran datalogger for me, and then did some homework on my fusebox problems and called me out of the blue about it, which was appreciated...definitely someone I'll call for help in the future. Friendly guy, knows his shit, salt of the earth.

John sent me a box of goodies for my car. I originally asked for a MAF plug and he put in 5 more things. All in labled ziplock bags. He sent this all for free. He only asked that I donate to the site.

All in all a super cool guy. I've got his phone number and he makes a great sounding board. A great resource for the site.

Shipped me a GSR gauge pod for free, when mine got stolen out of my car (along with other stuff). Truly a pillar of the community.



I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

I can't believe I completely forgot to leave a good guy post!! Sorry about that John.

First off, he bought a 834/2000 off me earlier this year. Great experience. No hassles whatsoever. He came out and got it with money in hand just like he said he would. He even brought me a Pepsi! Past experiences with selling cars has always left me frustrated. People say they'll show up, say they have the money, but don't ever keep their commitments. Not so with John. He did everything he said he would.

I was also having problems getting my gauges to light up properly. He called me up and gave me some advice with some ways to wire them up.

He's definately a great guy. Hopefully get to do business with him again.

Thanks again.

John's been helping me with a driveshaft issue over the phone for the last few days and has been VERY helpful, taking the time to talk things through and explain details to this amateur shadetree machanic. All this without even being asked; just a phone number for me to call very early on a Sunday morning Thanks John!

John drove up to meet me in Denver from his home and gave me the whole right rear wheel assembly (everything from the arms out, minus brake caliper, disc, the wheel itself, all of which are fine) with the understanding that I fix mine and trade that one back (if it's not totally shot) and that I pay it forward with helping people out in the future. It's all cleaned up, ABS sensor was neatly taped to one of the arms. Basically gave it to me for free (including labor time for pulling and cleaning those parts, which is not to be underestimated), other than the cost of parts to fix "the whole shitaree" on my car's wheel setup if it's salvageable. And if it's not, he said "we'll work something out." I intend fair compensation of time/money if that ends up being the case.

I love his philosophy of helping/enabling people help themselves by building the skill to work on cars in the Galant (and general DSM) community. Top notch guy who goes out of his way to help for the love of these cars and DIY mentality, who gladly answers questions with his veteran ASE mechanic experience when asked, and who I am happy to assist should I be asked to do so, despite my relative newness to car tinkering. All he asks is that you return the favor to others, and that's a very fair request for how much he does freewillingly.

Thanks again John! I owe you one!

John is the definition of what we call a "Good Guy!" He has been helping some of us newbies here in Colorado figure out many of our problems! I cant thank him enough for helping us!

He said that he does it because people helped him when he was young and I will do the same!

I will do anything I can to help you out John or anyone else to my best abilities!

Thanks again John!

Just wanted to ( also ) recognize John for his immesurable contributions to the site and GVR4 community.
The latest offer to help out gsxtasee with temporary storage is just one of MANY selfless acts.
Thanks again John for reminding us that not everything has a price tag or strings attached....

If we do save Jason's car, it's going to be because Tim, (DailyDsm), did all the legwork.
