I just want to give a shout out to the small speed shops, at least those that remain. I admit that I am guilty of using the big chain auto parts stores, they are located close to me. That being said, I had enough today, I called to see if they had a valve cover gasket for my 383. Well, first off, don't let me disturb you, also I would prefer a cork/rubber gasket, I just like them better and I find they seal better. Well, after being told that the new ones seal better and yes, I can get you a cork/rubber gasket from another store, no, I don't know when it will get here, maybe today, I'm not sure, call back and check later............. I called a small speed shop here, they are a bit of a drive for me, yup, have one in stock, yeah the good cork/rubber ones, oh yeah, it's cheaper than any of the ones quoted from the big store. An extra couple bucks in gas, but from now on they will get first crack for my business.
