I don't know whats going on but man it business has died down to nothing since the beginning of the year. The only phone calls I get are from telemarketers and vendors wanting me to buy more stuff!

If this keeps up I'm gonna be forced to close doors.
Anyone else feeling the pinch?

We closed the doors Fri. Been in business for five years building racecars and selling parts. The economy over the last six months has been terrible here.

Worst month for sales in the last 12 - December, 2010. January is easily worse than that so far. All I know is I tried to get a crank offset ground and the turnaround was 6 weeks. So SOMEONE is busy.

People are waiting till they get tax return money.
^^^^ I see this every year.For the next 2 months I'll spend 2-3 hrs. a day pricing all kinds of off the wall shit.Then they say "Okay,I'll call you when I get my tax refund".
Oct.2010 was the worst for me.

It has been slow for the last couple months for me - I actually sold my business on December 23 - got out when the gettin' was good - the previous years have always been extremely slow during January and February....Good luck and hope March shows up soon!!!

Our shop has been booking 3-5 days out since Thanksgiving.When we got back from the T day holiday we had 11 cars towed in ,and it has been insane ever since.
I'm so sick of working on vehicles etc. I don't even want to work on my stuff when I get free time!-That's not good!
