    Some of you fellow Cummins owners may be aware of Geno's Garage, their a relatively small, family owned business that mostly focuses on Dodge truck parts. I just received some parts I ordered from them for my 99', and look what they threw in!

    A relatively small gesture I suppose, but very cool none the less.

    FYI: Candy is a great way to bribe me to get me to order from you again :D

    Love Geno’s. Not always the cheapest but almost always the fastest and if they don’t have it, you probably don’t need it.

    Does that only happen after Halloween? :)

    I used to buy a lot of hobby parts online. One of the vendors would always throw a handful of mints in with every order. Always thought that was smart marketing.

    Chicago BMW was always my go to place for BMW motorcycle parts online mostly because they always included a bag of M&M's with each order. Alas they are now out of business.

    I ordered something a few years ago, don't remember what it was. But they threw in a couple pieces of candy too. Nice gesture.

    I can remember getting cracker jack prizes that were little whistles or something cool vaguely remember getting a little compass once. Now it seems to only be lickem=stickem tattoos. But I guess that goes with the Sailor theme. :D

    Send your exhaust off to Dawleys. You'll get a bag of peanuts when they return it.

    Step away from the dispensers. It's a slippery slope. My wife has over 1500 dispensers.
