My HERO!

Post  Frank Merkl on July 23rd 2014, 6:27 pm

A Big Thank You !!!!!!!! Goes out to Mr Lem Evans !!! I found a problem in my 632 monday morning 3 broken tie bars on lifters , called Lem told him my problem and I needed .904 lifters with a right offset ASAP !!! He did some calling around and found me some Comp Cam Elites, 4pm my time he call and told me he found lifters and would get them shipped to me , The next day at 1:30 pm I had the lifters in my hands !!!! and you have to consider that these were shipped to Canada !!!! 20 Hours shipping ,I don't know how Fed Ex does it ,but my hats off to them also !!!! The lifter problem I'll post on a separate post after I get every thing back together !!!

Guys,

I know some of you are joking around, but seriously Lem has always tried hard to give good customer service, and personal service. I've gone over to the dealership with him on weekends and holidays to pick up parts for racers that were in a bind. Other times when something wasn't on the shelf at his place, he'll call Phillip or myself either one, to see if we've got a spare whatever to help a customer out. IMO hat's off to Lem for trying as hard as he does to help out the Blue Oval faithful.Very Happy

I'm proud to say he is a friend of mine. I really think to us that know Lem and has dealt w/him for years,we know him as a man who will not only go out his way for us as friends,but for a perfect stranger. That's why that every chance I get,i will not hesitate to tell others about BFEVANSRACEPARTS. Thx Lem for all you do. You da man. Wink
