Hess Motorsports...Are they out of Business?

Tried calling them today at 1714-630-1300 received a message this is a non working number. I went to their website and sometimes it comes up and other times computer says page not available.

Anyone know anything?

They moved and now called Hess innovations. I bought some used side markers and tail light trim from someone there when they were moving a few weeks back. The guy said they wanted to get into manufacturing the that facility wasn't big enough to zoned for it. Think the guy said they were moving to south OC somewhere. Laguna or Costa Mesa. Somthing like that.

Yah Mike has Aet08's Camaro. From what he told me Hess is probably done. They charged and built a supposedly 900RWHP car that just made over 700RWHP after mike redid it, it barely made 600 when he got it. . I saw the car in action and it's silly fast but it ain't 900RWHP fast.

He wants to sell the car from what I've heard. It's fast and noisy. LOL.

The owner of Hess had (maybe still does) lots of crap on craigs list for sale from the shop. Some of it I would have liked to buy, lol.

Hopefully AET's car is back on track, and doing great. I know he was looking into selling it like you guys said.

My stock hood is still at Hess' old building. I never picked that damn thing up. If I'm not mistaken, the owner of the building wanted them out a long time ago, so I'm fooked. Lol

I couldn't find anyone to grab them for me. I do not own a truck and was living job to job for a long while.

John, you said you would pick it up. You stopped returning my calls and then facebook messages.

They lasted longer than I though. Although I think the lease was up 11/11 and they may have squatted until 2012......

Just started driving my car more after the move to Florida and discovered that Hess removed my catch can when the did the head work. Never put it back. Now my rear main is leaking. Common problem for blower cars if you DON"T have a Catch CAN! Probably baby huey sold it on Craigs list!

I have a LOT of leftover info on Hess, and still stay in contact with most of the guys that worked there, so if anyone has any specific questions or wants the truth about something, hit me up. I used to be LTL Audio, then HessRS, now im Third-Gen ;-)

So my hood and trunk are still around somewhere Jesse? At least it wasn't tossed out or sold by someone else. Thanks for chiming in. Maybe there still is hope. Also, I need to get some projectors for my new camaro. =)

I dont know what Hess did with the parts after I left, they might be in storage, they might not be. They gave a 64 Continental to the scrap guy, so a hood is anyones guess. Only Damien knows whats in the storage units, and I havent spoken to that piece of trash since I left. I can still make you a set just PM me.
