    I’ve never met Eric but I’d like to. I bought a few things over the years and always been impressed with his communication, knowledge and quality of parts. He has enthusiasm for the cars we love and I only understood that after learning on this board of his history. Thanks for all the help over the years Eric, particularly on 67S.

    Regards

    Years ago, Eric Linden was one of the nicest people I met at the first early Porsche event I ever went to, an R Gruppe meet in Cambria. I was either in college or just out, and driving a 914—probably the only thing in the parking lot without six cylinders. Eric was friendly, cool, and welcoming—so I'm very excited to see what he, Mark, Randy, and John have cooked up.

    Best,

    Iíve had the pleasure of knowing Eric for many years now. We first met at an Emory Campout when we were both mainly interested in 356ís. I was serving as Technical Editor of the 356 Registry and thought I knew stuff. Ericís knowledge blew me away - he knew *everything*.

    Heís helped me many times over the years with Audette Collection, my little light venture. Iím currently delighted to work with him, Randy, Pete and Mark on an upcoming article in ď000Ē.

    Kudos to Randy for starting this thread. Itís nice to receive earned accolades without having to die first.

    Cheers,
    John

    I hate to be the contrarian on Eric but I found him difficult to deal with since he wouldn’t sell me his personal 67s sport seats or a 67s softie I wanted. Teasing! He was always gracious and helpful. I still want a softie though!

    Like many enthusiasts that turn out to be critical suppliers, Eric deserves credit for setting a high standard on all he does and provide parts reflective of his passion for accuracy. He just won't do less than 'the best'. Period.
