    For all you NJ guys who use Shaw's Garage in Florham Park NJ I am said to say that they are closing after 40 years in business. Peter who has been a great help and a great guy over the years is finally retiring. They will be no longer a Fisher distributor. He is going to be renting out his building to a mechanic. Said to see him leave. Wish him the best.

    Per information I've heard, it's been for sale for a while.

    It is, but in Jersey, as you know. The cost to operate, and the lack of snow probably didn't help him.

    God bless him, 40 years at one location is a long run. He won't quit anyways he will pop up doing something. Not very many true working men throw the towel in especially if he liked to play hard. You have to keep your mind and body active. Or sickness and death or both is coming.

    A friend of mine got a couple inheritance as soon as he got the money he closed shop. about a year later he froze up and walking with a cane and shakes rapidly. I see him and can't believe he is my age and just went to the dogs. That money is killing him. Sits around the house watching TV feeling sorry for himself. I could be in a wheel chair and be more active than him. He almost makes me sick. :puke:
