I'll be at SEMA this year, if we can afford the gas by then. We're going to trailer the rigs up there and go wheelin the weekend before the show.
When are you guys going to be arriving in Vegas?

The SEMA show is for wholesalers. We are primarily a retail outlet. We simply do not have room in our price structure for an attractive wholesale program at this time. This year 4 of us from Marlin Crawler plan to attend SEMA, we do not have plans to set up a booth. As we increase our sales volume we may be able to offer a better wholesale program so other vendors can sell our products and make a little bit of money doing it. If this continues we could possibility consider doing a booth at the 2006 SEMA show.

I will be reporting from SEMA each night on pirate4x4. I'll have lots of photos and come commentary on what I see at the show.

Most of us in our group will arrive October 31...

Hey Chris:

Will the shop be open during the week?  Normal business hours?  I'd like to drive over and visit...

Maybe I'll see some of you guys there.  I'm planning on going.  I have to say the show is just crazy if you've never been to it.  I don't think I've ever seen so many cars in a day.  When I went I only got to check out the show 1 day.  There is no way to see everything in 1 day.  My legs were killing me.

Who all is planning on going?

The shop will be open all week but there is not much to see at the shop. It's a tiny little 3000 sq' room with lots of greasy parts at one end and racks of inventory at the other end. Our office is about the size of a motorhome and has 4 simple desks.

Honestly, you guys could have your operation run out of a shipping container and I'd still drive from Vegas to Cali to visit your shop. 

I have to meet CJ (as well as the rest of the crew) in person; ask CJ about 'Frankin Charlie Uniforms'...Dean got a kick out of that one...

I am truely pleased with the  :turtle:  goodies I have on my truck, although I have a ways to go.

Therefore, I'd like to see where such wonderful goodies come from.

Talk to you all laterz...

We use two shipping containers in the back yard for parts storage!

Nothing wrong with that! 

So, did you have the chance to ask CJ about 'Frankin Charlie Uniforms' ?  Just to let you know, I wanted the goodies sent to my job, yes, a FEDERAL CREDIT UNION...so I gave him the F-ranklin C-harlie U-niform code, so he wrote it out!!!
