    Does anybody know this gentleman Craig Madison. He took a deposit from me almost a year ago for a set of 35 Roadster top irons still has not produced them and barely answers his phone. I have no problem continuing to wait if they will be produced but if people know otherwise please let me know.

    They have a Facebook page. That might be a good (public) place to contact him.

    I met him and his wife a year ago at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona. They had a booth. Seemed like very nice folks. I purchased a set of top irons for a 35 Cabriolet a few years ago, and they arrived several months later. The workmanship is excellent, but they shipped the wrong tie downs. I sent those back last August, and I'm still waiting on the replacements. I am going to the show again this year, which is starting in about 3 hours, and I will look to see if they are there again this year. I'll let you know this evening if he was there.

    The top irons were originally made by Girtz Industries in Indiana. Their employee, Ron ??????, branched off and was doing them. He was a good man. Call Girtz 844-464-4789 and try to track Ron down. He maybe sold to Graig or works with him. Might be able to help.

    The website says the business was purchased from Girtz. I think Craig, the guy you referred to, may have sold it to a third party, but I may be wrong about that.
    I’ll try to get over there tomorrow and check it out to see if it is a viable business, or maybe they folded their tent.

    Here's what I have been able to learn about Superior Car Parts. The guy's name is Craig Matteson, and he moved the business within the past 2 years to 885 Lambrecht Drive, Suite 5, Frankfort IL 60423. They were a no-show this year at the Grand National Show in Pomona 2 weeks ago. Their webpage is a few years out of date, they no longer return messages left on their phone, or emails, and most telling perhaps, earlier this week I contacted an employee of a business that is next to the address above, and they said there is never any evidence of business activity at that location. Decide for yourselves, but I conclude they went under.

    Good Day to all ... this is Craig Matteson ... I am the owner of SCPI and have been for the last 10 years. We are in business and although we have had a rough go the last two years, we are still here and are slowly starting to produce and start to ship again. Ron Grace has had to medically retire and so we have had to move things a couple of time and get resituated. He is helping to make sure the tradition of top frames remain the same. All orders will be honored. My direct email is craig@matteson.cc and I can be reached directly at 630-514-0549.

    Craig, if you really are still in business, I am still waiting on my stainless steel tie downs for my '34 Ford Cabriolet. I sent the incorrect ones to you last year. I have the mail receipt for that shipment. Jerry.

    Jerry, Straight up Craig Matteson is a liar. He owes me the amount I told you when I messaged you a while back. I paid for everything in full and only received a few hundred in parts. It's not about the money with me, I needed the parts for my roadster. I can verify everything, I say the guys a dud.

    Stay clear of that guy... Karma is a bitch.

    It puzzles me why anyone can do stuff like that, but I'm sure you are right. Keep up on what Karl Wescott is doing wrt fabricating 34 roadster top irons. He might be the place to get them before long if he carries through. Have you advertised to see if anyone has a set of original or reproduction top irons that they did not use? I hope you come up with a set somehow. It must really be frustrating to not know where to go to get something that important for the car.

    Craig, it's now been two years since I sent you the incorrect hold downs for my 34 Ford Cabriolet. Are you going to send the replacements (as promised), or not?
