Been using Birdsong for repairs and oil changes... On a SATURDAY night, just before 8:00 P.M., I sent an email to the shop asking for a favor for a relative... I expected a reply the following week...BUT NO...Brad Birdsong replied in less than 10 minutes... He said "Sure" about helping me out... On a side note...the shop floor would be a nice, clean place to have a picnic...but...clear it with Brad first...
Mechanic bleeding a brake system

If you’ve ever been in an emergency braking situation, you’re probably all too aware that the brakes are the most important safety system on your vehicle. And like many other systems in a vehicle, the brakes need regular upkeep to continue functioning properly. One way to preserve the integrity of the braking system is through brake bleeding, and while it may not be as well known as certain services like oil changes, it is a key maintenance item for a vehicle.

Unless you are confident in your abilities as an automotive mechanic, there is really only one rule when purchasing a flood-damaged vehicle: don’t do it. Unfortunately, sometimes sellers aren’t particularly straight-forward with their used cars. Many will try to hide the fact that it’s been damaged by floodwaters at all or try to convince potential buyers that the car is in fact fine. “It has gone months with no issues” or “technically it is flood-damaged but” are two red flags, and while it isn’t impossible for a flood car to be fine, it’s altogether a good idea to stay away.
