28th Street Metro Cruise

I will again be having the Madison Man Cave Open House this year during the 28th Street Metro Cruise. Hopefully I will have Saturday off also. Plans are preliminary, but should be open by noon on Friday, through 11pm or so, and the same on Saturday. Food, beverages, & rest room supplied. 1/4 Mile south of 28th Street on Madison Avenue, in the heart of the south beltline and all the action.

Yes, my man cave is at 3125, and I have 2 houses nearby. I used to deliver parts to your building on LaGrave ~1970. Can't remember the name of the machine shop/garage there, but they rebuilt the 390 in my '62 Sunliner.

Yes, "Eckberg Motor Rebuilders". Someone must have rights to the name? re:

Eckberg Motor Rebuilders
2631 PRAIRIE STREET SOUTHWEST
49509

I worked for Duthler Ford from '69-'76. I'm sure Eckberg normally got their parts from Keller, but they did get some from Duthler.

Yes, they moved to the Prairie location but then closed up. One of the owners kept the name rights.
