On two occasions, with two different Ford p/u trucks, I needed emergency repairs while enroute to a very important fishing trip in Northern Ca. A front wheel bearing went out (caused by overtightening at a chain tire shop: for which Frank provided me a letter which helped in obtaining a partial reimbursement) the first time. I arrived at his shop just before closing, so he could not get to it until the next a.m. He directed me to cheap, clean motel a block away; I found the liquor store on my own. He went to work on my truck the first thing next a.m. Unfortunately the bearing had welded itself to the spindle and that was the one part not immediately available locally: so he carefully hand chiseled the bearing material off until the spindle was symmetrical enough to put on a new bearing. He charged a very fair fee and sent me on my way with the advise, "Get a new spindle when you get home." I only lost one day of fishing! Two years later the starter went out in the campground and I went back to Willow Creek's Napa parts store to get one. There was Frank having a smoke and a coffee. I thanked him once again and he replied, "Did you get a new spindle?" He just shook his head when I admitted I had not. The second time my annual fishing trip to the Klamath River was saved by Frank, he put me ahead of his other customers because I had a toothache! He wanted me to be able to get to an emergency dentist to save yet another trip. He had to modify an alternator to get it to work for me, but he did and it did. Beat the heck out of the Ford dealer. Frank rules! Also, his shop is charming: filled with antique automotive memorabilia and model cars and within casting distance of the beautiful Trinity River
