My roots in the vintage air conditioning business go all the way back to 1988 when I was building a '61 Corvette and my friend Ben Bailey was building a '41 Ford Coupe. We decided to go to the Pate Swap Meet in Pate, TX to look for parts for our projects. This was my first swap meet ever and it took 3 days to walk the whole meet. Spending this time walking through approximately 80 acres of parts was overwhelming. On the way back home Ben and I starting talking about starting our own business and making these parts more readily available. By the end of the trip we had a name for our business and even stopped to buy some early OEM Chevy parts. The rest is history. My wife and I still own the business and are bringing quality classic auto parts to enthusiasts all over the country. We have a son and a daughter, five grandsons and a granddaughter. When we aren't working on vintage cars we like going to amusement parks, traveling, fishing, riding bikes and hunting.
