Thread: Eric Linden

    Eric Linden

    It's no secret. Eric Linden and I are friends.

    The first time I spoke with him, it was in response to an ad he had posted for four perfect early deep six 15" Fuchs for $900. That was all the money back in 2000. I passed...

    OK... I've learned one more thing since then. This guy is the real deal.

    It's no accident he is considered one of the foremost experts on SWB 911s. He's spent essentially his entire life researching these things.

    Yesterday, we worked together on photographing some of his "inventory". Anybody who knows Eric will know that means everything you and I could ever desire.

    It was a great time and a highlight of my year. Thanks, buddy.

    Randy, can't wait to pics of that hoard!! Yes, Eric is truly a good guy and a REAL asset to this community. His knowledge and willingness to share is invaluable. Truth be told, and THANKFULLY for the majority here, there are several people here on this board whom are the same. Ok, so, when/where can we expect to lust after his stash, 000?

    Thumbs up

    I believe I met Eric in 2000 as well....

    One of the first times he went over my tool bag and tools with me in a Cambria parking lot...
    He discussed with me what was correct and what might not be. Always being a concerned, exacting, and knowledgeable gentleman, willing to share what he's learned.

    Through the years, learning his dedication to family, community, his own history, and the products he produces, my respect has only grown...

    Can't wait for this well deserved article...

    Cheers for now and things to come...

    He certainly is the 'real deal' and generous with his vast knowledge.

    Eric Linden has THE passion, and is also capable of reproducing rare Porsche parts very very accurately.

    He helped many of us in keeping our cars "right" and more importantly "on the road".

    Thank you Eric.

    I met Eric for the first time this year at the parade over in Spokane. We've talked on the phone a few times, but it was nice to put a face to a name. He is a VERY nice guy that happens to produce some great parts for us! It was great to meet you Eric

    I've had the good fortune to spend a little time with both Eric and Randy. This community and myself personally have benefited greatly from Eric's top flight parts and Randy's stunning photography.
