Although I applaud your wanting MADE IN USA...... I can't help but postulate that we (on the VMF) are but a small market in theI just drove over a hundred miles one way to pick up a washing machine that was in stock, a no frills, no computer, top-loader made in the USA by Whirlpool because all of the computerized and front loading washing machines on the market are absolute junk and I wanted something made in America, and they are in such high demand right now that all of the stores in my region will be out of them for weeks while more are made.
U. S. A. !!!
I have said it before, and I'll say it again, I prefer to use original pieces, restored nice used pieces and NOS when available to keep my Mustang as original and as American as possible. If it's not available, I'll wait or use what I have to until the best becomes available. Virginia Classic Mustang, Mustangs Unlimited (for a time) and certainly NPD have helped me do that. And I am grateful. If I call NPD and get put on hold, that's a sign business is good, participation is healthy, and I can look forward to more cars passing by, roaring around the track, lining the show fields, and appearing on VMF with new and existing members. I can wait my turn for the next guy to find out if he needs phosphate and oil or zinc plating for build date such and such... without calling anybody names. I'll save those words for the PoS home appliance I'm mad at.
You may want to try and reach out to the owner of NPD (Rick) who's screen name here is 69bossnine. He has been very open and forward in describing parts, where they come from, and which ones are of a better quality.Well this post I started took two very different paths! One down the intended path of finding if anyone knew who in the USA makes parts for the hobby car industry and the other down the path of customer service of a respected forum member who owns a hobby car parts supply company. The first is the only thing that I really intended to delve into. In this day and time of china trying to ruin the whole world I for one will do what I can to support only American made products. I suspected it wouldn't be as easy as just finding a list of USA manufacturers for aftermarket parts for old mustangs or chevys or so forth. Please don't think that I don't realize that buying American is sometimes just about impossible.
Ok yes I just saw that. I did not know the steps you pointed out. I did ask to be removed from the site because it seemed that I had rattled so many cages by pointing out my opinion of the service I received from NPD. The remarks from some members were pushing for response from me to use abbreviated obscenities just as they were. I've moved past it.Just in case you don’t know, click on your initial ‘J’ in the upper right hand corner which will expand to other options. Specifically, Conversations.
