Chassis Engineering is closing

Some of you may have heard, but just in case you haven't:  Chassis Engineering has announced they are closing, and will have an online swap meet for their remaining inventory soon.

This is sad news; I've always appreciated their quality of product, and their bolt-on components allowed the average Joe mechanic a better chance to build the car of their dreams.

Weird, on their FB page they were just looking for a welder in Oct. I know the founder just passed, too bad someone didn't take it over. I may have to stock up on a few things for my next Deuce or the 40 I've always wanted to build.
Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

I'm surprised and shocked this company is closing...A true STAPLE in the aftermarket business!
I'm not a 'catalog-peruser', but I did speak with a salesman over the phone in '98.
He said their owner had designed and fabricated a pair of Chrysler Hemi engine mounts (block-to-Ford front cross member)
I asked about intent to mfr., he said he'd ask.
A few days later, he called and said they welded up 3 sets...did I want one? I bought the pair for $16.00! They are excellently designed and welded, as nice as I could do.

Is the entire hot rod scene beginning to crumble????

I believe  part of the reason may be do to the fact  that very few people build thier cars any more. most have a pro build a car for them.many builder make their own parts.

 I was at the Goodguys event a week ago. Walked through all the big vendors down in the "pit" and guess what, NO HOTRODS. The parts they were flogging were for tri five Chevys and newer cars. I think the only exception was Steve's Restorations inside the big tent. It will be interesting to see where this ends up.   Jim

All you have to do is go over to the Deuce side of this site & that kinda says it all.As for Hot Rodding in general, It's still going strong.Tons of Pro Touring,Pro Street,50's cars,muscle cars & so on.
