A busy spring was taken up with trade shows from Vancouver to Banff along with customer open houses in Kelowna, Edmonton, and Nanaimo. Derrick also debuted his 1949 Chevrolet station wagon in "unfinished" form as part of the Lordco booth at the B.C. Classic & Custom Car Show in Abbotsford, BC in April. In July, the wagon hit the road and was in attendance at various shows for the rest of the summer months. We also attended the Lordco Bridgeview store Grand Opening car show presented by the BC Chevelle Club and offered sales support to the Lordco event trailer at the large Langley Cruise in September. The wagon should be a great help in selling much of our products, especially Surf City Garage! We would like to thank Magnaflow Exhaust Products, Maradyne Fans, Surf City Garage, BBK Performance, Bright Source HID and PRW for their support with this project!
In August, the drag racing bug hit Derrick after 12 years of retirement and he took possession of a 1966 Chevrolet Impala that is an NHRA legal Stock Eliminator car currently running in Q/SA. He hopes to hit the track in the spring and enter the Lordco BC Nationals in June. Also purchased was a second hand enclosed trailer that Derrick will use for sales support at customer open houses and shows through the summer months. We have already outfitted this with BedRug TrailerWare which should be a hit with the car show and drag race crowd!
September kept us busy with PWA in Phoenix and a great trade show in downtown Vancouver. We continued in the Fall with SEMA 2012 in Las Vegas and finished up with a quick trip to Detroit for some training with our newest client, Extang! We are excited to be associated with a great company like Extang and along with our addition of Hypertech in November, we look forward to some great sales growth in 2013 and beyond!
