Just an FYI for all members.
I ordered an igniter for my 66 back on September 11 2018, I never received it and had contacted Lon on 8 occasions where he said, he was waiting for them to come in, after a month I asked him to refund the money as I could get one locally, all I got out of him was “sorry I understand “ but no refund was sent.the last two contact were thru Paypal to Lon and yet no reply.
Just wanted to let’s the members know to use discretion when dealing with this business!

I bought from there a few times before the "semi-retirement" announcement. Lon was very helpful and a really nice guy.

After that announcement, when I was in need of a clutch and flywheel, I called a few times and never got an answer.

Its a shame but its probably very difficult to do business in a niche market.
Just working on cars all day and dealing with people is taxing. I'm 34, Ive been doing double duty turning wrenches and managing a shop since I was 18 and I already hate a majority of the population. So give me another 2 decades and ask me how I'm managing, if god willing i'm still around.

I wish him (them @ Corvair Underground) the best.

One of the reasons I like Clark's and California Corvair is they've always given me good customer service and no excuses.

I wish there was a warning posted about Lon....

I spent almost $1k on a rebuild kit. All I got was a box of gaskets worth about $35 at Autozone. Still waiting on pistons, barrels , rings, etc... I ordered the parts 11 months ago.

Lon is a thief. Niche market or not, you don’t take people’s money knowing you can’t supply the parts.

NOBODY is lying! These are facts... some more emotional than others IMO

Does no one read TOPICS except their own?

Lon is Moving!! He has a hard time doing business without that!

He haslots of satisfied customers... and lots of dis-satisfied as well...

And as always.... NO Vendor bashing is allowed here...
