i tell ya man it was 110 miles one way, but i dont regret it for 1 minute Mike & lisa & their sons are kindred spirits and really do it for the love....I hadnt been there in over 12 years and it was like going home...they have a mexican 1992 panel van there thats really cool. and plenty of parts vans & boy they are down to earth, not like some of these euro auto places on the seacoast that just want to rape you for the BIG SCORE

BTW After West River Westies I went to John's and had my windshield replaced. He did a fine job and at a good price. I was off and on my way after a short while.
