Just out of morbid curiosity...the move that Ron made to the new facility recently...was that a bigger/better facility, or was he perhaps downsizing? Anyone actually see his new facility?

So basically — his “gal Friday” or whatever you wanted to call her — is Randys (One off customs in Sacramento) girlfriend - who used to be store manager for Sutton when he had some retail store at one of the dirt tracks == and Randy is/was his “chassis” builder.... and the whole operation was run out of a small “hot rod” (there weren’t any) shop in Sacramento area. In other words — it was Ron and Randy - and recently Ron had hired a guy to answer phones and ship stuff.

He’s out of business.... and you won’t be reading or hearing from him again.

He owes a lot of people....

I agree that it was a doggone shame at how he went down. And while people will blame me — they should really look at Sutton and how he was conducting business. While he stated he was no “Frank @ Prodigy” — the actual facts are that he was exactly that. Robbing one guy to pay the other — and he’d never ever be able to catch up - because the more the business grew - the more he owed. Fixing my POS alone would be 10’s of 1000’s.... and that would just have come out of the next sale to the next guy and so on.

When you don’t do what you say you’re going to do — or do what you say you can do.... and deliver peoples parts and products and services. You go out of business.

Like the drivers for his old race business found out —— he was just full of bull**** and marketing lines.
