trans am reaper
« on: April 12, 2011, 08:07:37 PM »
Let me put this out here as straight forward as I can. I pull no punches when it comes to parts and cars in general. .
I have dealt with Bob several times. I have sent many Trans Am people Bob's way, because I knew he would treat each person right.
I have bought parts from Bob, that others would have have tried to sell for 100's of dollars more. I got to know Bob personally and spent the better part of 6-7 hours with Bob finding the parts "I" wanted. Get it? Parts "I Wanted"--- not just what was in front of us. We traveled around---- back and forth until I had my truck loaded with what "I Wanted". This was in the fall of 2010.
Bob's title of 'trans am reaper' is just that----a title. Not the person.
Today---- I  received a part from Bob. A part I have been wanting for some time now. I took Bob's word on the part (without even seeing a photo). I didn't need a photo. To me---Bob's word is gold (Y88 GOLD).
Bob----If you are reading this-----Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This peice is top shelf quality and no games.
Thank You So Much Brother.

Wow, I thought that was going to end badly for some reason. Good to know, I just contacted him to find me a carb I've been looking for.

I've come to know him on Feebay and he always sent my top notch quality parts..
He will definitely bend over backwards to help a fellow TA member...

I have talked with Bob over the phone the other day.  Certainly seems to be a knowledgeable person in the TA field.  Seems to be a great person to deal with over the phone.

As of yet I have not bought parts from him.  He is still trying to locate what I need.  If & when he comes through I will be driving to Chicago from WV for the parts.  That is how much faith I have in his word.

I will add to this post once I have parts in hand.

I also bought some NOS flares from him a little while back. I got a good price, the parts were packed well and shipped quickly. I would surely buy from him again.

Only bought pillar panels from him (I think they were used...couldn't even tell).  Packed up superb, and shipped quick at a good price.  Will get more when I can.

Sent the Reaper a little cash - 2 days later I have a very good condition chrome bezel installed on my Bird, with the black trim rings- for under a hunny- can only offer praise and will go Reaper for all my parts first

Yep. Black with switch. Those things used to be everywhere. Sort of dried up overnight.

I bought an OER a few weeks ago. I guess its not bad but the grain appears to be different to me. Oh well! If u see something give me a shout.

hey Bobby Thanks! I have a few tattered consoles that I can rob the metal mounting brackets out of. But thanks anyway.

I put the signal up in the sky, and the trans am reaper answered the call for help.....



Taking the time to find a small part I needed (jack retainer bracket & nut) and getting it to me quickly so I can complete another check on the list of things to finish on my Trans Am. That's service!

Thanks Bobby - I look forward to doing more business with you again.
Don't fear the reaper people - call him!
