Three Years Ago Today

It was three years ago today that Phil Reinhardt passed away.

A lot of you new members won`t know him or how much he gave to this Forum.
He was our parts guy, and ran the Fastlane and Allpartsexpress auto parts
store we had before pelican parts came along.
Actually we were in the Pelican fold and things were switching over when Phill passed on.

If you ever had a part problem, he was our go to guy. he could find anything that was NLA...almost.

I think actually he was one of the original guys that helped put this Form together when it was mercedesshop.com

Probably one of the best parts guys to walk the earth. I still remember the standard response to a parts question that couldn't be resolved on the forum being, "Call Phil. He can help you with that."

He always had time.. whether it was a $.25 part or $500. He was helping with a Benz.

He is missed EVERY time I call anyone for parts

Thanks Charlie
