"You Should of Seen the One That Got Away!"

A few of the CPP sales staff hit the wide open sea for a little fishing adventure last weekend. They headed out of San Pedro and spent the day reeling in sculpin, red snapper, cod and a few really great sunburns. The last time the crew went out fishing, they ran into a school of squid and that was all that was brought in the boat all day (they aptly named their previous adventure the "calamari safari!"). The boys were pleased this time to not have to deal with any of the eight-legged creatures.

The Agony of Defeat

Mario Salgado, one of CPP's customer service reps, lost a bet with fellow employees and pays dearly. Mario's beloved Angels lost to the Dodgers during the Freeway Series last weekend and his "pay-up" was to wear the winning team's colors. "Thanks to the Angels bats taking the weekend off, I am stuck wearing this ugly shirt." Mario says. "I hope I don't break out in a rash!"

Making a Lasting Impression

CPP Customer Service Rep, Aaron Strietzel, began working on his 1957 Chevrolet four years ago this month. Besides the Corvette Millennium Yellow paint job it sports, the car has a 355/700R4 drive train, CPP's Big Brake front & rear brake kit, 500 Series power steering kit, tubular A-arms and MCPV-1 master cylinder and brake booster. While some would be happy with an artist rendering or photo of their project car, Aaron took it one step further by permanently inking this beauty on his arm.
