Tony from AlfaStop, MIA

has anyone had any recent contact with Tony from AlfaStop in the UK? i placed two orders in mid-April and after responding that he'd be gathering the parts up by the following week, i've got nothing but silence. i understand that he's a one-man shop and if i back calculate the years he's been involved with Alfas, well, i'm a little concerned about his well being. a couple emails and phone calls have gone unanswered. i hope he's just enjoying he sun on some tropical beach somewhere, but,....

anyhow, as the exchange rate is/was favorable, i wanted to take advantage of that fact. without any contact i am reluctant to reorder elsewhere, lest i end up with 2 sets of everything.

anyone close to Belper, UK, in the Midlands. that Rolls-Royce plc country, by the way.

I just spoke with Tony Stevens two days ago. He was on vacation for a few days. He has a US phone number and you should email him and get the number.

Call him on US Number 1-747-201-2617 (beware of time difference to UK).
He is the nicest guy, just too busy at times.

i had a nice chat with Tony this morning. i got a brief history lesson on alfa driveshafts and italian industry in the 50's. i'm happy to report that he's alive and well and very busy fulfilling orders.

i wanted to post an update to this to declare my satisfaction with Tony and the job he's doing for these old cars. i called him on Friday to clear up an issue with my credit card due to fraud concerns (understandable caution). Tony got the purchase by Noon (his time) and stated that he likely would have it at the shipper that afternoon. I received the package all the way from the UK to SF Bay Area today!!!! i have one more package due but i'm blown away at the speed of UPS.

as for AlfaStop, i consider it a service for these cars and several parts apparently are exclusive to him. he's a one-man shop and it takes time. understand that and make your own decision. as for me, i give him 2 thumbs up.
