I still worked that day, Bill on the other hand did get a chance to go out there and check out the show rather than work it, for the most part lol.

Between free shipping and the easy of ordering online we don't bring as many orders to show as we use to so the huge tents and packed trucks full of parts is kind of fading like the paper catalog.

No worries though we still hold the annual cruise to Carlisle from CJ's so people still have the option to get parts or whatever we are looking for. Beside it gives the other guys a chance to do something without the fear of our huge display casting shadows over their "display".

I can probably borrow an eastwood roller from a buddy and do it if I need.

SlowSix no, I probably need to roll my fenders.
June 27th, 2015 03:32 PM
Contour'd Are your fenders rolled and pulled? I had to do mine because they rubbed pretty bad, especially this year because I went with a wider wheel and an offset that put the wheels out more.
June 26th, 2015 08:04 PM
SlowSix My car was too low for a tow truck before, I can't imagine now.
I might actually raise it up a bit.
I did another autox event last sunday and I ended up semi rolling my drivers side fender with my tire because it was scrubbing on hard right turns
June 25th, 2015 12:24 AM
Contour'd Yea, I was limping her over to my second of the show field to leave it so I could get my roll back at work so I could pick up the car. Stupid thing is too low to tow without removing the damn bumper lol! I have to say though, I had a blast.
June 24th, 2015 11:53 PM
SlowSix Saw your car on saturday SVT, didn't happen to get any pics of it though.

I also saw you leaving autocross sunday morning when I was signing up, didn't see that you blew a tire out though. That kind of sucks.
June 24th, 2015 01:57 AM
boattlebot Ouch. That sucks. I think I saw your car, but icwas just walking around up the hill. Didn't really stop and look at much. I spent more time with the am guys and stalking Slowsix more then anything

Contour'd Congrats to all o the winners. Sorry to bump up an old thread, just wanted to get caught up. Did anyone get a bunch of pics? Or did anyone make it over to the SVT Contours? I placed 2nd in my class and had to tow the car out on Sunday because I blew a tire in the first group of autocross on my third run.

I say that because for me to drive to you guys it would be like 3.5 hours. I liked you guys being at carlisle because I could check out what you had while at the show.

Granted I could just order off the website, but there is something nice about being able to actually physically see the products.

I was extra confused as the carlisle map showed you guys being in your usual spot, but I walked down there, and it was empty, lol
Yep.

Phone Hours:
Monday - Friday: Open 24 Hours a Day

Showroom Hours:

Did autocross this morning.
Went home without buying any parts, though. Which is slightly unfortunate. lol. Everything there was either old stuff, junk, or newer, 05+ parts.
A bit disappointed CJ pony parts wasn't there. They always have a huge tent but they weren't there for some reason.

I'm pretty sure I saw SVT contour pulling out of the 9 am autocross session earlier today.
