Hi Gary!


   Sorry for the interruption but I got a dumb question about the watermelon.      What shifter boot did you use on the console for the pistol grip?      I'm still using a 69 round hole boot and I just saw the closeup pic in the new MCG  and it sure doesn't look like what I got.

    Thanks in advance...  Hope to catch up with ya at LVD.

That is a round hole boot.  We lubed it and slowly eased it over the pistol grip.  So far, it's holding up. Real tight fit.  I'll let you know if it splits.

Thanks for the info  icon_smile_cool   

I'm sure mine will split first... it's a few years old now   Tongue

And congrats on all the magazine articles and such.  I love all your cars.  You guys rock!

Didn't get the chance to talk to you at Columbus but I sure did admire the car.  I wish I would have been around when you took it off the hoist so I could see the interior.  Great job.

If you were making fun of me for that, it's too bad I didn't have time to complete the whole thing.  The original vision was much grander in scale.  And as for laughing at me, that was kind of the point.

Did the shifter boot split yet?  Grin

a wopper of a payroll! but I'm sure you'll have a nice coy response planned?

What the heck are you guys babbling about and why did you bring it here? I don't care who did what or when but I don't want it aired out in public here.

Thanks,

No dayclona and associates would have to be in business 30 years to be a rival and have to own atleast 1 original wingcar .They have made allegatations over and over and unfounded ones I might ad about a close friend and his parts and business livelyhood .But who sent the PM to whom

Ok, I'll be a little more clear then. I've heard other people make accusations and trash about Janek on this board but NOT G-Series or anyone from Dayclona. Both threads that you posted in were not started by anyone from Dayclona or as advertisements for the company. Heck, this one is a WELCOME thread. Nice welcome. Once again, I don't care what the issue is between any of you guys but don't bring it here or you'll need to find some place else to whine about it. Try Moparts - they love that sort of stuff... Grin

On the other hand, we'd love to have as many Charger and Wing Car enthusiasts here as we can. The greatest asset to this site is the knowledgeable members and the information they share. Let people can make their own decisions about who to buy from and who they like/trust.

Troy,

In defense of Dave just a little bit...   Are we all to have that same attitude the next time someone posts about hlpag?   Let people make their own decisions about who to buy from and who they like/trust?   While I agree with you that a "welcome" thread isn't perhaps the best place to post the content of that PM, I don't think things like this should be swept under the rug.   And for the record, I don't know either Mr. Janek or anyone from Dayclona, I have bought parts from neither of them, and I do not want to take sides for or against either of them w/o further info.

I hope this isn't the telltale signs of a kinder, gentler, politically-correct DC.com

Lemme explain...

The folks from Dayclona did not show up on this board selling or advertising their products - other people were inquiring about cars they had seen and also noticed the name and welcomed them in. They also, to my knowledge, did not come on here blasting their competition or making any allegations. In my estimation, they did nothing here to provoke a personal attack from anyone else. We have discussed the cars and pros and cons of their products here and on other boards many times in the past and managed to keep things civil. Now, wingcars6970 took it upon himself to post his personal feelings about the company in a rather odd sort of way. It seemed rather obvious to me that it was meant to provoke a response (which it did) based on a personal relationship that seems to have been around for a long time. I have also read about Ted Janek, his business, and his "customer service" (good and bad) in many places. I don't know any of these people personally nor have I done extensive research into purchasing any of their products. It's one thing to discuss a product but quite another to bring up personal issues and petty bickering. Had anyone from Dayclona made an allegation or talked trash about Ted I could see where a response would be warranted.

There is nothing changing on the board. I believe that I have always been intolerant of personal attacks and infighting between people who just don't like each other. I try to let it slide as long as it isn't disruptive to the board and it doesn't get out of hand. Usually an email keeps things in check. When someone is harming the hobby, ripping people off, or profiting on the trust/gullibility of others then it's a different story. In the case of HLPAG (and to a smaller extent BobbyJ) there were threats of physical harm and verbal abuse against many members of the board. He/they were given more than enough rope to hang themselves in public and they obliged (even though it took a long time due to other circumstances beyond my/our control). I don't want to see either of these two in the same situation or having members choosing sides over perceived offenses. So what if they can't be friends - it accomplishes nothing to hash it out on this forum when it's been going on for a long time with no resolution in sight. I'm not trying to sweep anything under the rug but I don't believe that airing personal (not professional) differences in public does much for the credibility of either company - or their friends. If there's a legitimate gripe about quality or service then it's open for discussion as always.

If your looking for low budget fiberglass wingcar products try Janak Productions or Showcars.com, for upgrading to steel parts try Erik Nelson, Ron Knifley, Gene Gregory or Dayclona Enterprises

   I mention that one has been in business 30 years no matter who it is.That has or had a real wingcar and the experiences learned from that ownership will be carried over in the parts Mike   .That means everyone and anyone no matter there budget .Can build a wingcar replica of there dreams.Not a parts vendor like dayclona that only builds cars for themselves and friends from what I ve seen so far.Does anyone know outside that circle.of a individual or any number of others that purchased a kit and built a wingcar or cars with there offering of parts etc services.if you know of any show me cause all I see is there same cars outhere .I know of several customers that have been able and to purchase over the past 30 years and build several wingcar clones .Me included got the parts from Texas.And dayclona sent me the first hostile pm after I thought by gone were by gones after my TX buddy made a point to go visit them at carlisle .After which I was no longer responding Ted had the last word and apologized.which I responded to hostile pms on dayclonas part and can post or email to whoever cares to see .
