Good morning:
Have been treated very very fairly by Don and his crew and very helpful. Some things may be on back order, but that is the case at just about every place that you order from now. Call, Call Call, you would be surprised at how things in a 50 call day gets misplaced. As for the others have only dealt with PDG and they too are helpful and willing to go the extra mile to help with a problem.

If the new Vic's Place is so good, why is he using at least three pictures on his website that he lifted off my website?

He states that his web is copywrited, well so is mine, and I took the pictures.

Jack: I don't know Don at Vic's very well, but he has been good to deal with. If he is using your pictures, I would encourage you to give him a shout and inquire about it. Perhaps he got them from someone else and thought it was OK. Again, I don't know him well and am not defending anyone...but I have found a good chat often settles most differences. Best of luck.

I did just notice that the new vics has flooded ebay with ads for their parts. Hope it works out for them.

It did make it harder to spot the orignal parts ads - more stuff that you have to look around/over now.

The pictures he used are of ECO parts, single items, I don't believe he would go to someone else to get them.

He wants to purchase items from me and I won't sell to him.

Even before Don bought out Vic's, as a small repo/repo parts seller he flooded ebay. Guess it does work for him.

I'd bet there are more single pumps being restored by individuals [that only do a few pumps] than there are members of ALL web sites dedicated to the preservation of pumps combined.

Oldgas has over 11,000 registered members, I'm guessing less than 3,000 have made a post 1x & I'm guessing 4,000 that lurk in once a week or more. WHERE ARE THE OTHER 4,000 ?

Why would you not sell to him? A sale is a sale.

Probably similar reasons I won't sell my repo cans to some ebay sellers/dealers.
