I gurantee you he doesnt care. Its tough to do business with George, he makes you fill out a customer application and checks references to see if you've been a problem customer at RN, AB, or other big-name vendors. I was really lucky in that he and I went to the same English boarding school (though many years apart) so I had an "in." But all the hassle is totally worth it though, last time I was there I got a free FEMA trailer.

That really sucks. I spent a couple hours going over my Rover and making a list of EVERYTHING I could replace. I would have spent a lot of money. As a business owner in Michigan, April Fools or not, I would have to sell at the represented price. It's one thing to make fun on a board like this, but to represent this on his website is all together differerent.
Oh well.

Not if you've ever done business with George.

Is the risk of a joke having an adverse affect on business worth it? The last laugh's on those that seek their parts elsewhere. Ha ha. My sides are splitting.
