    You're right, it's more of a curiosity thing. I guess I feel bad for him.

    The world is far better off without him in the car business...any business for that matter.

    Sticky, his pride is probably what broke the company in the first place. The pissing match between ProEFI/Saad and HPF fueled in part by the epic failures of mine and Marcus's cars, pushed him to build that ridiculous all out drag car. I'm sure Chris's pride was crushed when a newcomer blew 1/4 mile records out with ease.

    The parts, labor, tooling etc.. to build that car alone had to have easily exceeded $200K. If what Derek has said is taken in to context about the troubles HPF was having, then they must have built that car on the credit card..

    In hindsight to all that has happened, I'm glad I sold my car when I did. I think the market for these cars is only going to get tougher for those that decide now, or later to move on.

    But what did the car show? Nothing really, did it ever even run 9's? I mean for a fully built drag car that's sad.

    That's a terrible decision then.

    I think you are confusing pride with ego.

    Close definitely but taking pride in something rarely gets you in the same kind of trouble having a big ego does. I mean the argument could be made taking more pride in the business rather than indulging the ego... well, you get my distinction I think.

    Anyone know how to get ahold of anyone at HPF? I orderd a clutch/flywheel on 5/3/2013 and they closed the doors on 5/7/2013. My car is down until I get these parts. Thanks for the the help.

    People going after him personally now but I guess it may be fair if his personal life caused the downfall.

    Why the $#@! can't I find an 18 year old high school girl to date? I have a more successful business involving BMW's at this point... ok no low blows.

    People were warned behind the scenes. This was coming.

    I didn't realize it would be so hard and so fast but I should have seen it when my invoices kept getting delayed and delayed.

    Damn, even if part of that screenshot from E90Post is true that is some messed up stuff. Personally, working in the same type of business I honestly can't see how someone manages to steal $200K from the company and get away with it for that long. I improperly entered something into our system and our accountant noticed in 30 minutes. I think a lot of this blame being put towards the theft is also a distraction. Still, I just feel bad for the customers who have their personal property locked away inside that building. I'd be loooooosing my mind. I also feel bad for the employees who didn't see it coming. Just a $#@!ty situation across the board.

    From my understanding the issue is that some assets, including the shop car, have been removed from the shop. I think the landlord was made aware of this. For all we know the land lord is owed money. This is definitely a complex situation.

    You can't cut the lock and open the door. Just like you can't do this at an impound lot even if the car is your property it's still breaking and entering.

    You SHOULD be able to though...

    That's a big shop, who is going to take it now? Ton of money being lost here from all sides.

    Renting a huge place like that adds up maybe wasn't the smartest thing to begin with.
