Sometimes its painful to relive these events, but in retrospect more good has happened than bad.
We have expanded our market presence into South Carolina with the help of loyal customers. As well as a physical presence in Florida with an ever growing relationship with Andrew Tate.
Andrew has brought a level of experience and skill to this enterprise that is sorely lacking in this particular business. Well, unfortunately ANY business these days. Finding good people who WANT to work and grow something good is hard to come by. So, I'll leave it at that because I really don't want to start down THAT particular rant. Anyway...
We have run the gamut with "wannabe's" and as a small independent business we just can't afford hacks. So having learned from that experience we've changed course and strategy.
We have streamlined our products, and focused on a particular niche' that has a few loyal and dedicated followers that share our passion. You will not find Accord parts, Newer CIVICs, or high performance aftermarket parts with us. There is soooo much of that on the internet already, and there is no way to compete with the Chinese...nor do I want to.
We are enthusiasts, perfectionists, passionate and loyal to our product. Trust me, we appreciate beautiful cars and a job well done. Especially since that seems to be a disadvantage to the shade tree mechanics, and weekend warriors, who cut and hack up these cars that are better if left alone. But hey, the '57 Chevy went through the same growing pains, as did the Mustang. They were cheap to acquire and parts were plentiful. We are experiencing that now with the EG and EK civics. But what this generation of Civic enthusiast doesn't understand, is that makes these EW and EF chassis MORE VALUABLE, not less so.
The basic principals of supply and demand apply here, and they are just that, simple. If there is no supply, that creates demand. Demand creates higher prices. The guy that asks for a higher price than what one person is willing to pay does not mean its not WORTH what he's asking. Because, someone WILL pay what he's asking...and THAT sets the market. NOT the fact that you're broke and expect something for nothing. Business 101...and that could send me on a tangent about education...but I digress.
I will say this. We are not the cheapest. We are NOT cleaning out the garage. We are in business to save these cars and have fun doing it. We do care if you're satisfied, but because we're good at our job, doesn't mean we're in business to give stuff away.
But I can guarantee if I don't have it we can find it, and you will enjoy the fact that we are honorable, professional and live up to our word. Relationships are our bread and butter, and we cherish them. So if you're trash talking or a "hater" keep walking. We don't have time for your crap.
You want honesty, you've got it. But we expect reciprocity. When we get it, you ARE the most important client we have. Guaranteed.
