Offshore parts are offshore parts. They all come from the same huts. Maybe I'm being a little harsh, nope, never mind.

let's wait until we see the prices...I don't see them being competitive. I'm sure I will get a good chuckle. I know I do when I look at their other catalogs...another reason to poke fun at my chevy friends.

So let me see if I got this straight. Last year, Classic Industries buys out California Mustang. All of a sudden, Classic Industries announces they are going to start selling classic Mustang parts. Does California Mustang have long to live under its new ownership?

I believe California Mustang actually closed their doors for this. The guy I used to buy from moved over to Classic to work.

with so many mustang parts suppliers already in existence, they may find the market place tough to deal with. but i will take a wait and see attitude on this.

I think the biggest benefit this merger will have is the new location in-between Orange County and LA County, for local purchasers. I agree, with many established classic parts houses selling globally for many years, it's gonna be tough to compete in the online market place.

Yah Cal-Mustang sent me 4 hats with my last order with the notice they sold the store to Classic guess they cleared out all their hats. Cal-Mustang had some of the best repros you could buy.

California Mustang's best days were when they were over on Holt in Pomona.
Last thing I bought from them was a set of "Shelby" tri-Y's over in their La Puente
location............ which they got back the next day. Complete Crap.

As the drill sergeant said, "I taught you everything you know. I didn't teach you everything I know."

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."

I can’t speak about the prices yet, but my dad goes to their hub in Huntington Beach for mopar stuff and the times I’ve gone it sucks! It takes forever to get your parts and you can’t call in an order and have them pull it before you arrive. Their system is like the dmv you take a number wait for it, select your parts at the counter and then they pull them and you pay. The whole thing takes at least an hour on weekends. If you live in the LA area it’s much better to drive to Ventura and visit NPD.

I had a hell of a time getting a piece of rear window trim from Classic Industries for my son's Nova. They kept sending the wrong one. I had to take detailed pictures of the part, the package, the car etc. Finally after a few phone calls, they took the part I needed from a complete set they sell and sent it to me with the attitude that they did me a favor by breaking up a set. I was a little saddened when I got a postcard from California Mustang announcing they would be down while they transitioned to Classic Industries. I didn't buy much from California Mustang, but what I did was priced fairly and of good quality.

68 Coupe, 289, C4. It'll buff out!

I used to buy from Cal Mustang a lot, but since I've been working on the car the last 5 years or so, pretty much been using CJs or NPD. The MCA discount at CJs was the main reason for the switch.

CAL Mustang was the source for Daisy's parts when restored in 1983.
I made a point of going out there (and buying more stuff, of course!). They had military discount and even honored it after I got home and then ordered yet more stuff


Oh well. I will miss them!
