File this under "If only"...

my short sighted in laws had said yes to Lynn's offer, my late wife and I would have owned Sports Car Specialties, DBA as " Autohaus Orange".

Instead they invested in a main stream, reliable company...blah  blah  blah,....and quickly lost every single penny  Cheesy Cheesy

This is a cool post. I never worked at any of the Auto-Haus stores, but sure bought alot of parts there. Mainly the Buena Park and La Habra stores, cool place, cool people. Mark I remember at La Habra and John (forget his last name) at the Buena Park store. And just a hop skip and a jump away...Johnny's Speed and Chrome. Man I miss these stores!

Dave owned the Long Beach store for a while then purchased the Orange store. I worked at the Orange store for a few years (for Dave....he will have to tell you some stories as I don't want to let all of the cats out of the bag), Schwimmer lived around the corner from there and Greg B. came to work there with and after me.
