Having read the whole thread again, I don't get the sense that the hard feelings were on both sides, rather that Sparky was probably just disappointed. Also seems to me that anyone who owns these old vehicles, even younger ones and particularly those who frequents this site, should have had some idea about variations in equipment, problems getting parts, sometimes having NOS parts fit right, etc. both due to the custom-ordered nature of the originals, and more so, to possible modifications since then. My advise would be to not jump to quick assumptions of fault or motivation; now-a-days, with communication so easy, it should be simple to find out what's going on and fix the problem, [except in that (one) rare case where communication doesn't work and ample history does show exorbitant prices and exceedingly poor customer service]. That seems more than reasonable to me.
