Has anyone ever heard of this place in Tallahassee FL? I've been trying to contact them to find out the status of my dash and have not been able to contact (or hear back from) anyone through phone or email for weeks now.

I'm sorry to hear that. I don't have Facebook, and I genuinely feel bad for the owner and his family, but I'm still interested in my parts as I'm sure many others are as well. I have been trying to contact them for well over a month.

Yes, David Patik, the owner is very sick. Don, his office manager I'm sure will be in touch with you. It does not look well for David. He has been a real asset to the Mopar hobby for many years.

OMG - I've known Dave for years & bought from him many times! Devastating news. That just took a hunk of flesh out of me. Prayers to Dave.

David is one of the nicest people you can deal with. He is very thoughtful of others. He is extremely knowledgeable about our hobby.

I'm so sorry to hear of his health difficulties.

Yep, I’ve got a friend that has had Dave do all his gauges and vinyl graphics for years and said he was in bad shape. I talk to him many years ago when when I first dissembled my Superbird nose and just threw all the fasteners in a can, like a stupid kid. He had me send him all my stuff and he sorted them and gave me all incomplete fasteners I was missing. He’s a real asset to the hobby.

Wow ! Just read this post . . . very sad to hear, all the best to Dave & his family. He has been an asset to the hobby for years. As others have said, nice guy, and great to deal with. Sorry you are having a hard time right now, but maybe cut them "a little" slack . . .

Wow.. Just got my dash back from him.. Took a little longer than expected, so one day I get a box in the mail from him, not big enough for my dash, so I opened it.. He sent me for free, and I never asked, a set of stripes for my car just for taking a few weeks longer than he expected... Never told me he was sick.... Really, Really good dude...

Kate Patik is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of David Patik.

Created August 26, 2020
Medical, Illness & Healing

To all David's relatives, friends and customers,

David Patik, owner and operator of Performance Car Graphics in Tallahassee, FL, has been stricken with cancer and is currently undergoing extensive treatment and rehab. The cancer has metastasized to multiple organs, including the stomach, liver, and brain.

For the last 44 years, David has put all of his time, energy, and love into the restoration work he does with Mopars, always doing the best possible work, always fair and honest in every way to his much-appreciated customers, and always willing to share his vast knowledge about the cars he loves so much.

Now David needs your help in paying his mounting expenses, as he is unable to work. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your kindness in this most difficult time.

Kate Patik
(David's sister)

(All funds raised for David will be managed by brother and primary caretaker Richard Patik, on David's behalf.)
Updates (20)

Today by Kate Patik, Organizer
This picture shows David instructing his around-the-clock caregivers, brother Richard and friend Sheila, on reassembling unfinished and unrestored instrument clusters for shipment back to waiting customers. He was exhausted after that. David's doctors told him there is nothing more they can do for him, and he is in home hospice now. Your prayers and donations are greatly appreciated. Expenses are mounting.
