This is about a year old, but there was a follow up video posted almost immediately afterwards conveying it was a misunderstanding and the issue was resolved.

I know where that place is at in Boise, but have never talked to any of them myself. They used to be from California, I think, and moved up here a few years ago.

Dutchman Axle also relocated to this areas as well. They were in Portland, Oregon forever.

I can't imagine having an adult conversation with that guy, let alone trying to do business with him.
Looking at his shop, home, and toys, he has done well for himself. Somehow.

One of his businesses is a string of smoke/vape shops.

You got that right. Typical ex-con prison attitude. Reaper, whose real name is James Goad, was arrested in 2001 for drug trafficking and went to jail. He was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

His attitude would wear thin quickly.

If I were the principal at The Blower Shop, I believe I would fire this guy as a customer.

Misunderstanding my a$$. You're right, and you're the one who had one.


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

Being in business 35 years I have come across and unfortunately had to deal with guys like Reaper.

They come in the shop and immediately think they are at the front of the line and should get preferential treatment.

Reaper, has it ever dawned on you if you took a different approach to dealing with people things might be different?

Doing a youtube video and calling me a cock sucker wouldn't get you very far that is for sure.

And if this was resolved why hasn't the video been taken down?

Not defending the guy as I would have a hard time dealing with him but if ya look at the bigger picture and all involved in that "group" with all the TV drama hes more or less a paid personality it seems no matter how revolting one might find him.

If people did not watch the TV, youtube and go to the events he would just be another loud mouth fool with a few nice cars... but the car world is full of them.

I dont watch any of the old or new SO type shows or vids as they just keep pushing the limits of classlessness even if they are racing some nice cars. Youtube has become a joke more or less anyways. Some great content from smart guys but the morons and click bait masters seems to make the money.


STOP POTATO HATE!

after viewing all the comments here, why does this guys attitude after being treated poorly make people so miffy? If you think about it, he's a customer AND a distributor (at some point) he was not given an answer to his question or treated how a buyer should be. He used swear words? big whoop. It should be more of interests to potential customers that he was able to resolve the problem and both parties are happy and continuing to be working with each other. By the sound of it, he has high praise for the owner. I wonder how this all would have played out if a popular Moparts member had posted that video, would it have a different reaction?
