Why is there a big Atlantic British sign on his store? Is he associated with them?

Damn, Horsey, you better check yourself, before you wreck yourself. Your Research Assistant title may have to be rescinded.

Thanks for posting this. I have always had good dealings with Mike, and wish him well.

Maybe Ron (Evilfij) can weigh in ?

I stopped by Manhattan EuroParts today to see whats up. Great little place with lots of parts. Mike even carries Redline! Nobody carries Redline oils. Driveshafts, lugnuts, roof racks, shirts, hubs, all on the shelfs, and a bunch of AB boxes with goodies in them. Looks like a great place to get some parts during the week or weekend when you are like "oh crap I need a _____"

Mike and I got joking around about how Ron has transmissions and transfercases laying around the house and how he uses 75-90w in the shower.

I hope the shop stays around for a long time.

And it's still that way now that he has a live in girl friend. The uncanny thing is he seemingly knows exactly where everything is. The welder in the living room made me laugh....


Hope Mikes new venture does well. He was always great to work with- found me an entire tub side for my NAS 90 years ago. Also when I needed keys for some of my euro trash, I called him up with the VIN and he fedexed me keys.

Years ago Mike found some oddball parts and exhaust pieces for me. Great service and price, even when he was at the dealer. I'm sure he'll do well with this new venture.

Can't believe I missed this. Yes this is "Mikey" formerly of Land Rover West Chester in PA. Yes, if it exists (and sometimes when it doesn't!), Mike can find it and get you a good price on it.

By way of background, I worked with Mike when he was at Land Rover Main Line. In fact, I became parts manager when he moved to West Chester.

Not sure about the AB sign. I know he would be able to get AB to drop ship things to me and sold them stuff from the dealer so I assume they are continuing the relationship.

PS showers are for removing 75w-90
