Steve from Project-G here. I have been elected to speak on behalf of 2nd Chance Roadster and Project-G..
We have an exciting announcement that has been a long time in the works. 2nd Chance Roadster is now located at Project-G's new facility in Baldwin Park, CA. Alex has spent the past month moving his inventory into our facility. Project-G (Joe and myself) will be handling the sales side of 2nd Chance Roadster since the inventory is now here. We have been doing this already for close to a year on a smaller scale with out any issues at all. Alex will remain actively involved with 2nd Chance Roadster and don't worry, Project-G has Alex's price list. We are all confident things will go smoothly, although we do expect there to be an adjustment period in the beginning.
There are many reasons this is happening. The biggest reason is Alex started to make delivery trips from Victorville to the LA area many times a week. This was a lot of hours of drive time, gas, and wear and tear on his vehicles. When you add this all into the price, it doesn't quite work. The more we talked about it, the more we all realized 2nd Chance Roadster could not continue this way. Since the bulk of his sales are in the LA area, and we were handling a large part of it, it only makes sense to have his inventory centrally located here as well. Now it is not necessary to plan around his schedule, wait for his next trip to the area, or meet in odd places through out the city. We won't even talk about making the drive out to Victorville ourselves for that small part only Alex has. Now 2nd Chance Roadster is located 20 minutes from Downtown LA and 30 minutes from the OC and the IE with an actual store front.
This comes directly from Alex:
I would like to thank everyone who has supported my efforts, and I hope I can count on you guys to help me grow with this move. I believe this is a big step in the right direction for 2nd Chance Roadster. This will make it possible for me to continue to supply the community with the parts you need. In fact, with this change, I plan to become an even stronger supplier since I will spend less time behind the wheel delivering, and more time increasing my inventory. Not only do I expect to increase my inventory, but to also improve on the quality of the parts provided. I will also use this time to expand into other areas I have been wanting to explore. It can be viewed as 2nd Chance Roadster taking the opportunity to expand with a trusted source. Of course things will be a little different, but ultimately we all feel the end result will be a more efficient, well stocked, easily accessible, one stop Miata parts resource. This should really benefit this awesome Miata community.
There will be many days I'm at the shop, so you can always come by and visit.
You will begin to see changes immediately, starting with my website. It will now reflect the changes being made:
The number to call for parts is now:
(909) 20MIATA / (909) 206-4282
*Calling the old number for parts will only double my work since I cannot physically check my inventory.
Thanks for all your support.
