Unbelievable news. Thanks for standing up and letting us know right away. Sorry to see you go though as this leaves very few options for us.

You guys have been stand up both for this forum and to your customers. We look forward to your hopeful bigger and better return.

Wow! I'm in shock. I always felt like you guys made really quality stuff. Love my Stage 2 ZL-spec package. Hope the phoenix rises again soon. Best of luck to you all!

I don't know exactly for sure (I'm no business guy) but it sounds like those who invested in the company wanted to take it in a direction that Aaron didn't want it to go. Just a guess.

Wow that's crazy. Believe it or not I was really really holding out (which was very hard to do) for your inventory to increase because I was dead set on going FULL Pfadt all the way. I was also dead set on your coil overs, especially with the WEIGHT savings they provided and their excellent design. Now, whether or not I hold out for a restructure(hopefully) is something to think about. Good luck to you guys and hope to see you all come back bigger and stronger.

Thanks Joe. Y'all have a great thing going on down there and we are glad we could send some good people to you. I have a feeling CPR will be growing exponentially in the future so please get all your ducks in a row first. Thanks again for your business.

I wish I had the time right now to respond to each one of you individually. You have been supportive throughout this business since day 1. You inspired us to make exciting products for America's favorite muscle car. You were patient during our growth spurt and always kind to our employees. We are slammed right now processing refunds and shipping the last of the backorders but I just want to say thank you. I will really miss Camaro5.

You don't have to leave just cause you're gone - keep a presence and let us know when you're back. I know I'm hoping for a return

Sad to see these guys and Pedders go. No products yet from either but had hopes and always appreciated the solid, honest advice both provided. I wish them all the best and hope they get back in the game.

Sad to see pfadt go. Hope for a speedy return.

I received most of my order and the parts appear to be correct. However, I have been waiting for the last parts end links to show up and have not installed the others yet.

Now for the uncomfortable question...

Will there be a contact for fitment issues or problems? I'm sure the parts will be fine but I have saved for the parts for a while and would hate to be out a fairly sizable chunk of money depending on the part.

Sorry for this d*ck question.

Thanks FnD
