2 years ago a staff member at ajr offered me half the price as long as I buy more that $10,000 retail. Not going to details but some shaddy shit going down. Now I know how some of these kids afford those crap. And I wonder if the owner "ben" knows about it.

So many haters in this thread. If you can manage to outsource crummy decade old design and rebrand it because you know 90% of the car fans out there are cheap and retarded - you should make boatloads of money from crummy coilovers copied from Teins but spraypainted a different color.

Let's be realistic here, CRA won't be knocking on AJR's doors anytime about their cash sales. May as well bust all the nearby sushi restaurant first, ROFL

Nice S2K, sucks to see it in scraps.

Lots of our customers leave cars with us that don't have insurance. Pretty hard to insure a car that doesn't exist yet (like a restoration of a classic that isn't even in one piece yet). One customer dropped off a car that was literally a bunch of boxes of parts.

Our garage policy covers these vehicles. In 4 years I only remember one claim being made, and it was a doozy. $100K+ fully custom hot rod had a sticky throttle and was driven into the back of another car. Expensive repair bill (about $20K) and we used our policy to pay for it.

As far as I'm concerned, any shop with the sign up "not responsible for damages" is not worth dealing with. Or perhaps there's a reason they won't cover damages (like not having/unable to get proper insurance).

If you don't have a bunch of yahoos working for you, then accidents are very rare, and therefore, claims are rare too.
