Like I said before within the month of August will mean 11:59 on the 31st of August. LOL Also it will be a partially functioning site mostly for companies to look at so they no what the site will look like. I have a computer chip company a alternator company a transmission company a wreaking yard network a coatings company a ..a the list goes on and they all want to see the site before they budge. So the site will be more show than go but it will have some stuff working. I am also waiting for angry duck stuff for the ford section. I also have to wait another two weeks for a better deal on a credit card company but I will offer papal which is already up. The store is also new so I have had to learn it I am using a red hat store. I also have a new suspension kit for the 1991 Grand Prix. Oh I also found a cheap solution for our motor and transaxle mounts so I will offer that too.

TY

Well I have staying power and that is what will matter. LOL Our market is small within small and then tiny within that. LOL so the chance of someone making money is nil. That said I love doing R&D on our cars and I am a great net worker. LOL pat on my own back. Personally I figure a store and appropriate advertising will boost the performance image of the Bonneville and other h body cars. The way to finance it in my eyes is to sell parts for other cars in more viable markets. So the Cadillac is a bit better but not a much bigger market because of computer issues. The Chrysler market is big, but mostly because they fall apart before you get them off the lot. LOL Ford is also a big market. The grand prix is a big market but everything is already covered except for a few pockets so i will add those products last. I think the most important part of my particular store will be the availability of easy and comfortable group controlled purchases. This way if there is only 25-50 people who want a product for their car they can have it at a reasonable price. Anyway this is by no way my "day" job and so the speed that this will grow is not going to be fast. Because I have a day job the site and vision will not die and will have the ability to grow without profit. All I need is to break even. I figure thatí* as safe and guaranteed as you can get. The biggest thing anyone can do for this car and growth of products for this car is START Bonneville Club gatherings and advertise locally. Also meeting in public places where your group can be seen helps too. The more people who know about the options and the viability of this car the more will be interested in checking it out.

TY

Thanks for putting something together for the Bonnivelle owner. I just finnished talking to a guy who was interested in hooking up his car with Cold indution. I didn't know much to tell him except that the parts for the Grand Prix 3800 II should work on his Bonne as well. I know there are upgrades for the guys rolling with superchargers, but for us guys with SE'* thier isn't much we can hang our hats on. But thanks for looking out for us.
