Oh. I didn't know there was such a thing as a Neon ACR. I don't know if I can even be bothered researching that.

Wish I hadn't.

I guess I will apply to be a dealer with turn14 then. No personal reason behind that choice.

We had been doing about 10k a year with K&N but they closed their private label/custom products division.

Reminds me of that old YouTube video of Matt Farah listing "the top 10 cars that want to kill you". I think the Shelby Cobra was #1

TIL our previous purchasing manager left me a fucking mess

I was wondering why he quit when he did, but I realize now he knew we are fucked and a lot of it was going to come back on him.

Today I learned (actually discovered a few weeks ago) that a water softener is far better than a water conditioner. We now have both... But if you are considering a softener then you will need to install a water filter for your drinking water.

This is pretty common, I have noted a similar thing happening where I work.. People leaving just before the shits hits the fan or being pushed out as the shit hits the fan!!

It sucks cause we were friends, but going over everything I see it now. He just didnít care anymore over the last couple years. His timing seemed odd when he put in notice. Being employee owned we usually profit share at the beginning of December. So I was confused why he wouldnít just stick it out another 2 months and pick that up before leaving. He didnít have another job lined up yet as as far as I know(we still talk) doesnít. Seeing how wreaked things are I think he was overwhelmed and just said screw this. A lot of our venders are 21-73 weeks out and he didnít have the mechanical background to source from other suppliers. I have been essentially doing the bare minimum for day to day, but have been hammering on trying to find and get allocation of substitute parts. Yesterday I went into the office at 8am and left at 11pm.
