Steering Gear FYI

Hi Guys
Some of you know that Tom Reina passed away suddenly 2 months ago. Tom owned Corvette Steering and supplied many vendors with steering gears and parts.

Tom was a friend of mine I miss speaking with him, I'd call him a couple of times a month just to see how he was and BS with him. Really a great guy.

Now master kits are available everywhere but new gears are not.

I purchased the entire steering gear stock Tom had so I will still be building boxes until no one needs one!

Enjoy your family & friends life is too short.

Well said. Sorry for the loss of your friend, and send condolences from us to his family.

Yes, I am saddened by the death of any Corvette enthusiast. I did not know Tom but obviously he was a great friend to you. So my condolences....

But your continued commitment to supplying old Corvettes with quality re-done parts is much appreciated!
