Mail order from what I hear did them in. I would rather have a part in my hand than order off the phone or net. I like Summit and Jegs but I would rather go to a performance shop.

My uncle used to tell me about that place when he lived in Detroit. He said it was awesome, they had a huge selection of stuff.

I worked there from 94 to 98. Man i really miss working there, and buying parts in an actual store! Mail order did do them in a bit, but also a poorly ran buisness didn't help. I also believe there was some eventual ownerconflict, not sure though. At any rate, it was the best working time i ever had. NOthing better than making money doing what you love.
