Fel-Pro always takes me back to that summer day in the garage where a father was teaching his son about his passion

My story begins when I was just 8 years old. My father had always worked on cars and from the age I could walk I was always right next to him in the garage. My dad was working on his Chevy nova 2 that he drag race and I remember this day like it was yesterday. Hot summer day mid afternoon out in the shop I was watching and helping my dad doll new gaskets from the heads up on his motor for the race that weekend. As my father always did he would stop and show my how to put things together correctly, he pulled out a fel pro gasket set and said to me, one of the best lessons I can teach you about building a motor is to start with a good gasket set, a good gasket set will make a world of difference! From that day forward the name fel pro was always my go to, never crossed my mind to try any other brand. As I grew up and started building my own cars I knew that the only gaskets I would ever use were fel pro and still do to this day, never let me down! I use to have a picture of me and my father standing in front of that old novaand he was actually holding a feloro Valve Cover box, unfortunately my fathers shop caught on fire and the picture is no longer with us but the name fel pro always takes me back to that summer day in the garage where a father was teaching his son about his passion! Thank you to everyone at fel pro for the quality materials you provide and the memories, here’s to many more years using fel pro! Thanks guys!
