Default Welcome CAR MOTORSPORTS

I just returned from a business trip to Las Vegas and it was great to find out that CAR MOTORSPORTS is now a supporting Forum Vendor. If this is old news, I apologize. These guys are great to deal with; they sell quality merchadise. I have been doing business with Rich Van't Hoff, one of the owners for about 15 months. I actually met him through the CTS-V Forum while in the market for floor mats. As a small business owner myself, I can tell you without any hesitation that Rich truly cares about and his customers in additon to providing the best products possible at reasonable prices. For those Forum members who have dealt with Ken King (and I think the world of Ken King) I place Rich in the same category. Since I began doing business with CAR MOTORSPORTS, I have purchased their floor mats for both my Coupe and Sue's Vert, underhood liner and LS1 emblem for Sue's Vert as well, seat belt cushions and FilterMAGS for both Vettes. Here's a few pics of the mats in my Coupe and the underhood liner on Sue's Vert:





I finally had the chance to meet Rich and his partner A.J. in person at Carlisle. They both have Vettes (C5 Verts) and are real "car guys". It's great to have them as a part of the Forum. Do yourself a favor and check out their website.

You mean I won't have to whisper their name anymore? I have floor mats, a trunk mat and a hoodliner from Rich, as well as two of my friends have ordered hoodliners for their cars.

That's great news!





EDIT:

I want to welcome Rich, too! To echo what Joe said - Rich and his team are most definitely "car guys", and specifically own Vettes. So they understand the special needs we Corvette owners have. When I ordered my hoodliner and mats, Rich must have spent a couple of hours with me going over every single detail of what I was ordering to make sure that I got exactly what I wanted.

When it was all said and done - that's what I got - exactly what I wanted! I also have to agree with Joe making a comparison to Ken King at Vette Essentials. Both of these guys have a very high commitment to selling a top quality, custom product for our C5's!

As I stated above, I am very happy that Rich and CARMOTORSPORTS are now Supporting Vendors on the Forum!

They have some real nice stuff. I've been tossing around the idea of getting a set of floor/cargo mats for mine from Rich.

Rich,

With all due respect, I sent you a PM to avoid the phone, at this time. I do apologize for the full PM box. I have now deleted a few to make more room.

Rich is great to deal with and excellent quality products. I have a hood liner with the embroidered logo and it is far superior in quality and looks compared to the original. I also ordered the seat belt pads with the logo and they look great too. Keep coming up with new products and we'll keep buying them. and HI to Joe and Sue.
