Poker Run for a Good Cause

The President of Pickups Limited of Orange County Jeff Hornsby recently passed away from terminal liver and stomach cancer. It was a sudden and devastating loss to those who knew him and he will be sorely missed. When news of his illness spread, members of the classic car community, friends and family organized a Poker Fun Run in his honor with proceeds going to assist with his medical bills and wife. Unfortunately he will not be here to see the event this coming Saturday the 31st, but hopefully all attending will remember that not only are they helping his family, but doing what Jeff always promoted...having fun with their vehicles. The Run begins at Ken Grody Ford at 8:00, with a stop at CPP and several other local businesses throughout the morning. The ending stop will be at John Force Race Station. We are happy to support such a great cause and hope that many of you will come out and check it out as well. For more information contact Chris Travers at Pickups Limited (562) 412-0616.

CPP Paramount is Coming Home

Last year, CPP acquired a 3000 sq. ft. completely operational machine shop located 20 miles away from our Anaheim facility in the city of Paramount. Plans are underway to move this entire facility to a newly renovated section of our current location. We hope the move will be complete by the end of February. These onsite machining capabilities will increase production as well as ensure the quality of CPP's products.

Carlos is shown above running one of our three 20 H.P. CNC Machine Centers.

The machine on the right is being set up to run our CPP Steering Arms.

Edwin operates the HL-4 30 H.P. CNC Lathe.

New Dealer Display Stands that used to take weeks to have produced are now being machined on our own CNC Mill. These stands take less than three minutes...amazing!

CPP Stimulus Packages...

Nothing puts a smile on the face of a car hobbiest faster than receiving a big brown package from their favorite parts company. While the economy is hitting everyone in some way or another, CPP is working hard to do our part to help keep the economic engine running. With the holidays a distance memory and tax refunds coming soon, the phones are ringing steady in the sales department. We are doing what we can to hold prices down and bring new and better parts to our customers. It is times like these that we are really thankful to our loyal customers for keeping our shipping department so busy!
