I love it when I order a part that fits in a normal envelop with a 50 cent stamp and get charged $10.95.
I just got another order from Basil (a bunch of stuff)told him I was not in a real rush, I missed his email that he was going to the post office by about an hour and still got the parts in two days (CA to PA). Great service and advice and he always manages to fit everything in the most economical package. Very much a pleasure to do business with.

I just got a decent size order from Basil . His pricing and low shipping make it a great deal to buy from. A big plus is "are you sure that's it? " ,and I always remember something else. A+++

I recently purchased a new radiator from Basil. Prompt shipping, reasonable cost and a gentleman to deal with. I see my experience was not an isolated incident.

I received my first package from Basil this week. Honestly, receiving the part was secondary to the advice and information he provided in our correspondence. You can order from many places, but it is his fellowship and friendliness that make Basil a true gentleman.

Basil goes that extra mile and it seems as if he isn't satisfied unless he knows for sure your satisfied.

Great prices, Fast shipping, Friendly service, Wealth of knowledge, what more can you ask for...

Chris and Peter, I ship to Australia regularly. The flat rate Post packages work well on all but large and very heavy items. Email, PM, Skype me if I can help. I'm in California, USA so Sydney is 17 hours ahead of me - 9am in Sydney is 4pm here (the previous day). Basil 0011.1.707.762.0974 basiladams@yahoo.com

Shipping isn't usually a prob with Basil, for me, anyway! Half hour away and great drive thru Sonoma hills. Not to mention the view from atop the hill Basil lives on!!

Agree with all the others. Great person to deal with. I too had recently ordered a radiator and recieved it promptly, at a very fair price and had a pleasant conversation with him to boot.
I try hard to help out these vendors that provide great personal service by spreading out my orders between them. It's my small effort to keep these guys afloat during these tough economic times.

I will second all that. He will even raid his race car spares on occasion to help you out.

Basil has sent quite a few engine bits to me in Geelong Australia. As well as being great to deal with his postage has been quick and cheap. Often cheaper and quicker than from Sydney to Melbourne! Thanks Basil!
