Sounds like a great concept. Doubt it will ever make it my way though. Pep Boys opened a store a few years ago in Muncie, IN only to close it within the first year.

agree'd. im not very confident it will last either. Speed shops of the past were typical bolt on deals for High performance for vehicles in 1950's thru 60's. The electronic age has limited the buyers market. JMHO
