Pep Boys Speed Shops in store

I was jiving around in my local Pep Boys in Manassas and noticed a HUGE change......

They now have test speed shops in Manassas(VA), Fredericksburg(VA), Marlow Heights(MD), and Waldorf(MD)..... as well as others across the nation.....

One can get everything from CAI's to Cat back exhausts and Mickey Thompson tires in stock on the shelf......

It's like being on the websites except now its in the store.....

But the most amazing thing was the CAI's and stuff were much lower than I could even get them on Amazon or anywhere else for that matter....

I mean they had the High Flow Cats from Magnaflow and Flowmasters on the shelf right in my face..... intake manifolds the works....

Top that off with a lot of in stock items for the Gen5 Camaro.........

Oh and the word is if they sell it they will install it.....

I heard about a Pep Boys speed shop opening up around here real soon, they are having a car show at the grand opening. Anybody here old enough to remember "Super Shops" speed shops back in the day?

Yeah I probably will get most installs elsewhere but buying the parts from Pep Boys at these prices is a no brainer....
The word is they are expanding.....
