So watching the Cal Mustang name sunset is somewhat strange. Hard to believe we've been at it this many years now...

I had just gotten a harness from them a month or so ago. It was missing a couple of boots and the service rep helped me get the missing pieces pretty quick... Kinda sad to see a long standing name going out of business. I'm anxious to see how the new Classic Industries venture turns out.

You guys are doing something right it's a rough market to be in.

Out of all the parts I've ordered from NPD I've never needed to return anything, can't say that about any other vendor including Cal-Mustang they did carry some deluxe interior parts that beat all my expectations.

Folks need to research & do their homework on vintage cars there are too many variations & versions of parts with all the options offered for Mustangs. If I'm not sure I don't hesitate to call. NPD also has great CS. I'd guess 80-90% of customer returns is lack of verifying the part will fit their setup.

When we were in the area last year, I got to spend a "car day" on vacation. I did a tour at chips shop, visited classic industries, socal speed shop up in Pamona, and a couple other places I can't quite recall and even went to a local cruise in in Huntington Beach.

I saw what a few people mentioned, it seemed like a lot of people sitting down waiting for someone to get to them. HOWEVER, if I was local, I think I could handle the wait if that meant I got to get my stuff right then. I do have NPD a couple hours away in NC and have been there multiple times, especially when trying to get matching interior colors, but it was so cool for SO MANY parts places and shops to be in one "local" area. I think when they bring up your name they can see how much you've spent, so I always get treated nice The counter people have always been super nice to get a couple versions of colors for me, blue is especially a pain in the ***...
