Wesley i do believe that and my wife is a very big part of this she is the one setting up meetings setting budgets and also this web site was here ideal she wanted to make the business larger and do the web page we have been researching and talking about this web thing for a couple of years now .
so if it don't work i will blame her

Seems you got a smart head on your sholders there, Ron and a very supportive wife.
America, with all its problems and concerns is still one of the best countrys for a guy to take the plunge and chart his own course in life...

The problem with selling fast car parts is the market is so small compared to other markets. These are not things the average person wants or needs.

Good luck with this Ron, i am sure you will do well.
Were is Florence Kentucky anyway, is it off I-75, ?

yes it is ed I'm 5 minutes from I-75 it is 20 miles south of Cincinnati Ohio I'm just across the Ohio River in Northern KY .
Yes the high Performance business is very Competitive i always wanted to be bigger but was not to sure about doing the web page because it is a huge step and there was a lot of planning in doing so we have been meeting with suppliers to make sure that we could get the parts delivered without a problem getting shipping set up thru post office ,ups and fed ex
it is a job alone getting all this set in place before we launched the site .
and i wanted some information from the public on the web page also .

ya that's what i told her it would be all her fault .
she really in the past 6 or 7 years has got to know the parts pretty good she takes orders and sells some parts a lot of the women have gotten to know her around the race tracks they see her helping with the car and i don't just mean putting fuel in and checking tires she helps adjusting valves and changing pills in the injection brakes packing the chute she does a lot it's kinda funny in a way a lot of the guy's will have there wife 's call and see if we have something in stock and i will answer the phone and they will ask for her and take the order from her or she will ask me while there on the phone if we have what there looking for , i love it
i told her this web site would be her baby she has to keep it up and list everything . you know what she said why me .

Ron/Wesley;

Just had to chime in on the wife thing, had to go thru a couple to find the right one. (That's more expensive than racing)

Current wife is 100% supportive. Helps out in the shop and at the track. She enjoys it as much as I do. We enjoy sharing it together. It really is a special thing (to me anyway) to have a partner that's your best friend and #1 crew chief!
