Default Met Craig Colabella today

A friend Tom Rocker called today and asked if I would take a ride over to pick up his Sutphin at Craig Calabella's shop in St. Cloud, Fl. What a great guy. Craig really knows drives and has a great shop. I think I will have him take a look at my Bavo one drives this winter. Again, this man know drives.

Yes Craig knows drives. He took care of Spidermans drives, thoroughly checking them after every race including all three races in Key West. He directly helped us to win the National points for '04.
Thanks again,
Jim

Not yet Dean. I am looking for a Merc 2 tranny to replace my fried tranny. I bid on one on Ebay last night, but was outbid in the last 10 seconds. I have found one at a marine salvage yard, but it is pricey at $1000. BAM wants $2000 to rebuild mine. I found another one that is disassembled, but I would rather have a "plug and play" tranny,I don't want the boat in Craig's way while he is waiting for me to get him a tranny to put in it.

Tom

I guess you must know Sam then? We live a couple lakes over from his house.

And I was actually at Craig's shop this morning too.

Ziemer, Well please tell Sammy I said Hello and I hope all is well. Sammy deserves even more credit then Craig. I was very fortunate to have been part of the Spiderman team that year. I have some pics on http://jrsperos.com you might get a kick out of. Sammy is of course included in the pics.
Thanks,
Jim
