Default ADTR?

I was browsing around for upgrades for my dads 04 Crown Vic Sport, and it happens that ADTR is essentially the INTENSE racing for the Crown Vic crowd. Or is the ADTR of today totally unrelated to that of bonneville yesteryear?

I tried doing a search, and couldnt find much on here, but what ever happened to Hector? Anyone still keep in touch with him? did he end up another DP Ty along the way?

Interesting. the website has definetly changed (no longer spelled out the wen address) and the content is different. Didn't see anything on there that would indicate one way or the other though.

It'* the same ADTR. They did Crown Vic'*, Bonevilles, and Kangaroos (subaru'*) back in the day.

so it would appear that the Vic market proved much more profitable than the bonneville for them.

for teh record: www.ADTR.net

Yeah, I remember way back when I joined, the Bonneville wasn't huge on their list of parts. I remember the Vic was though.

I think it'* a combination his accident, and the fact there isn't much money in the Bonneville parts market other then what Intense and ZZP have covered good already. A lot of projects have had people say they would buy something (ram air hoods for example) and no one steps up with money.

Kinda hard to blame them with some of the vendors that have come through here though. Best bet at this point IMO is to just fabricate my own parts.

ADTR wasn't pursuing ram-air hoods.

I do understand what Jason is saying though. I've seen it happen on other car/truck forums. It'* really just human nature manifesting itself.

People are always excited about a possible new product they "could" buy to mod their vehicle and will often show excitement at the initial concept etc. Then when the product becomes available, dollars aren't available, or they change their minds, etc. and the vendor could end up with expensive custom parts getting dusty on the shelves.

No, but an old vendor had tried to set that up a few times, with tons of interest, but not anyone looking to front money.

Again, I don't blame them either. Hell the wait for ADTR was a little more then excessive.
