    Re: Having HG problems and ordered NORTHSTAR PERFORMANCE studs...

    Vince, stay the hell out of posts that involve me.

    I've been in Ontario this past week while I wait for my order of new thread rolls to come in (old ones became damaged). Funding is tight, the HG work in Ontario is the funding source for everything.
    Anyways, the Ontario shop is up and running again with a new general manager taking over. This is HG repair only. The stud kit production will remain in Manitoba as with vehicle repairs as well. We still have cars coming from all around the Great Lakes (Ohio, Pennsylvania, NY, Michigan, Ontario) at the Ontario shop. Profits from the stud kits don't keep the lights on and the doors open since it's all been investment lately. Huge overhead. I never wanted to shut down the Ontario location but finding someone capable of working on these cars that I can trust is not easy. The guy taking over has worked with me pretty much since I started this.


    Red93, if your name is Rick, I believe you did send me a text and I did respond. I'll be in Manitoba tomorrow afternoon and I will look up the order and ensure you're taken care of. Thanks.

    Jake,
    I got your texts and would welcome getting this problem resolved. I too have problems and customers to please and commitments to honor but I need my car back on the road to accomplish this! Look forward to hearing from you with a mutually pleasing solution! As for Vince,he's been good enough to try to help me out and for that I'm grateful and have nothing bad to say about him! I don't want a war here,I'd just like to fix my car.

    Re: Having HG problems and ordered NORTHSTAR PERFORMANCE studs...

    Thank you Red93, as just discussed on the phone I will call you for sure by Monday morning with your order update. I assure you will receive the best possible parts in dealing with Northstar Performance. Delivery standards will be back to normal very soon, I assure you. Myself, John, Charity, Pete, Jake sr. and Margaret are all doing our part in stepping up to the plate and taking care of our customers whether they bring us the whole vehicle for repair, the engine for repair, or purchasing the stud kits. The team is now standing at 6 full and part time people.

    To those of you who've responded to my plea so far a hearty thanx! Jake himself has gotten a hold of me after I called his shop to give it one last try this afternoon.As he says in the post #18 here...he will ensure I get taken care of! We spoke this evening on the phone and he was very cordial and promises a solution to my problem by Monday (Jul 23). Hope this story will have a happy ending. Will post the outcome Monday night! Could not have gotten this far without the CADILLACFORUMS! Thanx Again!
