I just wanted to drop a note and let you know how impressed I am with your company.
I got all my parts once again earlier than I expected. And once again everything is absolutely 100% correct and in perfect condition. I purchase parts online pretty much every week and BY FAR you folks are the best.
Awesome website, great shipping speed, and 100% order accuracy...every...single...time.
Keep it up!

Don't Trade In That Car Yet!
argues people should keep cars for 200,000 miles or more. This
be bad news for car manufacturers...but good news for those
of us who like to keep our cars
running in top condition for as long as possible.
"...When comparing the costs of buying
and keeping a car for 225,000 miles over 15 years to buying
an identical model every five years, CR found the savings could
be more than the original purchase price of the vehicle—and
even greater if the savings were invested..."

For years we
have used RockAuto magnets as a way to stay in touch with
customers. We hope a magnet stuck on a toolbox will remind customers
to think of RockAuto the next time they need parts. The original
magnets just included the RockAuto logo. We will always remember
our first batch of magnets because all 50000 of them were delivered
the day our office elevator broke down. There were a lot of boxes
to schlep down the stairs and we wondered if the magnetic field
was erasing every floppy disk and videotape in the neighborhood.
By late 2005 we had done RockAuto logo magnets
in every color of the rainbow and we were looking for fresh
ideas. For a day or so
we considered using classic car photos pulled from an online
database. There were some very nice photos out there, but they
completely lacked soul. Was that ’57 Chevy in the photo
still on the road or was it wrecked in 1978? Pulling car photos
from a database was like filling your family photo album with
snap shots of pretty strangers.
We were already featuring
customers’ cars in the RockAuto online newsletter and
talking to customers with interesting
vehicles every day. We all
started talking about our own favorite customer cars while
the newsletter editor pulled out some customer car photos.
Why use a generic Chevelle photo pulled from a database when
can use a picture
of customer Mike’s Chevelle!
So the idea of putting customers’ cars
on our magnets was born. Since early 2006 we have featured
24 customers’ cars. They are real cars that are still
on the road thanks to their owners’ loving care and parts
from RockAuto.com. We regularly issue batches of new magnets
in limited quantities so more customers get a chance to have
their cars in the magnet limelight. We hope all customers have
fun collecting the magnets. Dump those Beanie Babies! RockAuto
Collector Series magnets are much more enjoyable.
Customers send us their car stories
and photos and agree to be featured on a magnet. Many of
the cars and trucks on the magnets so far have been classics
from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Any interesting and unique
customer car, new or old, foreign or domestic, might appear
on a magnet. Customers use lots of RockAuto parts on their
late model, daily drivers. We probably will not do magnets
featuring a stock 2003 Park Avenue, 1999 Camry, or other
cars that people still see on the road every day. However,
with more time under their belts might be interesting magnet
material. Whose head would not turn if they saw an old Chevy
station wagon with the clamshell tailgate cruising down the
road? RockAuto.com customers send your car photos and stories
to email@example.com and
watch for new Collector Series magnets in 2008!

This might be what some call
a kit car, but it's still a Ford. A very fast Ford I'll admit
(420 HP and weighs in at only 2185 lbs). When it needed
alternator, water pump, and Edelbrock carburetor,
it was time for RockAuto.
I drive this car as much as possible, but
I've got to say I am controlled by the weather. And I'm sad
to say that here in New England she'll be getting put away
for a little while. But if the roads are clean, the sky is
clear, and the temps above 40, we're out.
