    Default Zbarn.com

    I recently found zbarn.com website. Supposely they have 400 parts cars. Has anyone ever talked to them? I emailed them and called them, and no response. Just wondering....I thought it was too good to be true. Maybe they went out of business in 1999 but somone forgot to tell everyone.

    Ditto what he said. Roger is a good guy. Many of us have obtained parts from him that are unavailable ANYWHERE else, so hang in there....

    Roger is always helpful when you get him on the phone and his prices and parts are very honest.

    Please keep in mind that ZBarn is NOT Roger's primary job, so sometimes it goes on the back burner.

    I've been to Rogers place a couple of times now - I live 3 hours away. It is very impressive. He has several storage trailers and everything (or at least most everything) is slotted and binned so he can get to it easily. Roger is a great guy - as honest as the day is long. If you are going to deal with him you must be on his time - if you are in an immediate hurry and biting at the bit to get a part you may want to look for another alternative or set an appointment and make the drive

    I've bought a couple of parts from Roger and although it can be a challenge to get in touch with him, the parts have always been good and the prices fair.

    Yeah already he called me back today...and explained his work schedule. Im not in that much of a rush. I can wait. Patience is a virtue ... He spent time explaining a few good things to me too. Bonus

    Can't say enough good about Roger.
    If anything, he UNDER-states the condition of the parts he sells.
    He said 'good' condition on a hard brake line, it looked like it was only a couple of years old.
    And it was 40 years old.

    I send him a little more than the price he quotes.
    First, because the prices are reasonable anyway.
    Second, he offers priceless info.
    Third, he helps keep our 'babies' on the road, and the older they get, the more we need a resource like him.

    I wanted to let everyone know that I found out today that Roger's wife was killed in a car accident a couple of weeks ago. If you've ever spoke or dealt with Roger, you know he is a world class guy and would do anything to help anyone. Keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    That's truly a shame. Roger's good people. Condolences to him and his family.

    Rogers wife's name was Sandi - I know Roger has helped a lot of us with parts and pieces over the years - I'm going to drop him a card of support - I hope some of you do the same.

    That address is no longer valid for the Z Barn. Roger moved the business back to his house several years ago.

    Condolences to Roger and his family. As everyone has mentioned in this thread, he is a great guy. About a year ago I had a whole lot of confusion on my mixed up strut housings (different housing on driver's side). Roger walked me through the measurements and sent out a strut housing promptly for a very reasonable price.
