Customer Vehicles at SEMA 2011

Once again CPP was a dominate force at SEMA. Besides our usual booth presence, CPP was well represented by dozens of our customers who were displaying their vehicles at SEMA; all sporting CPP products. These vehicles are a testimony to satisfied customers who have purchased and use our products. Here are four examples: a 1978 Chevy truck, a 1967 Pontiac GTO, a 1964 Lincoln and a 1959 Cadillac.

It’s fall, which means it’s SEMA time. Held annually, SEMA is the world’s largest automotive specialty products trade show and runs for four bumper-to-bumper days in Las Vegas.

Open only to automotive industry professionals, the show attracts over 100,000 attendees from more than 100 countries.

This will be CPP’s 8th consecutive year at SEMA and we will once again have a booth overflowing with our latest and greatest products. We will also debut our newest retail catalog.

If you plan to attend, we invite you to stop by our booth (#22878) to say hello. For those unable to attend SEMA, we invite you to view our videos, which will give you an intimate look at CPP’s participation.

A-lo-ha! Our 2nd annual company picnic had a little island flair this year, complete with flower leis, Hawaiian buffet and plenty of Aloha-spirit. Held once again at La Mirada’s Neff Park, CPP’s growing family was treated to a festive scene of food and games. Sno-cones, water fights, and balloon tosses kept everyone cool in the summer heat, while the face painting and huge bounce house and slide were hit with the little ones. Hula-hoop contests, limbo dance, relay races, and a heated game of volleyball had everyone smiling throughout the day.

Red Hot Chevelle

We love it when our customers drop-in to show us the CPP parts they've put on their vehicles.

Today, is a good example. While traveling home from a car show in San Jose, CA, Chip Brown of Las Vegas, Nevada stopped by to show off his newly finished red, 1965 Chevelle. After doing a complete frame-off restoration, Chip knew he wanted CPP parts for his steering, brake and suspension needs. His CPP parts list included: tubular control arms — upper & lower, big brake kits — front & rear with upgraded red calipers, booster—master cylinder —proportioning valve assembly, and a 500 series power steering box with linkage accessories.

Chip is more than pleased with the performance and handling of his new beauty, and he credits CPP for much of that.

Tri-Fives are Alive at CPP

Like a scene right out of the movie “American Graffiti”, more than 50 Tri-Five Chevys gathered in the wee hours of the morning in a parking lot in Fullerton before hitting the road for a cruise through Fullerton and Anaheim. The event marked the first annual Tri-Five Cruise and CPP ShopTour held last Saturday and it was a huge success!

The rain gods were nice to us, holding off any storms for the day, and even getting sneak peaks of the sun in the afternoon. Members of the tri-five.com forum spread the word about the event as well as CPP customers. Coming from as far away as San Francisco, San Diego and the Inland Empire, shoebox owners were treated to a day full of classic rock-n-roll tunes, behind-the-scenes tours of CPP, Carl’s Jr. burgers and lots of raffle prizes. Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, everyone received goodie buckets and raffle prizes totaling over $10,000.

The special guest of the day, thanks to Source Interlink, was “Project X”, the famous yellow ’57 Belair featured in the pages of Popular Hot Rodding since 1965. CPP owner Jim Ries led the cruise having the special honor of being in the driver’s seat of “X”. “What an honor and thrill it was to drive such an iconic vehicle!”

CPP Keeps On Truckin'

It was awesome! Early one morning, over 100 classic trucks — everything from C-10s to F-100s — convened in Fullerton for a 10-mile cruise that would wind through Fullerton, Brea and Anaheim. They were headed to CPP for the 1st Annual CPP Classic Truck Shop Tour, which was held March 12, 2011.

Though the weather was over-casted, the mood was bright and sunny, as everyone spent the day chatting and checking out each other’s vehicles. Everything was there; from works-in-progress to incredible show trucks.

Our cameras were there to capture the fun, which included the CPP’s shop tour, lunch courtesy of CPP and multiple raffle prize give-a-ways.

The Novas Have Taken Over CPP!

When we challenged the local Nova community to break last year's number of cars that came to our Nova cruise and shop tour, we didn't think so many of you would take us seriously! Word spread quickly about our 3rd annual event through StevesNovaSite.com and SoCalNovas and our own customer base. Over 110 Novas met up in the early morning hours this past Saturday, March 5th, before hitting the highway and cruising to our shop. What a sight to behold...four lanes of Novas across the 57 freeway! Participants from all over Orange County, Ventura, San Diego and the Inland Empire joined in on the 10-mile cruise through Brea, Fullerton and Anaheim. Once the caravan arrived at CPP, parking was swift and very organized thanks to some awesome volunteers and employees. Goody bags were handed out and raffle tickets entered into the drawing. Our sponsors kicked in some great stuff with the grand prize being a Total Cost Involved Rear Torque Arm Kit valued at $1799! Tours of our engineering department, machine shop, build department, shipping and showroom went on throughout the morning, giving everyone an inside view of CPP. The In & Out Burger truck arrived just in time to feed the hungry crowd. We will have the event video up real soon, so be sure to check back on our website! After the final count was tallied...140 Novas lined the streets in front of CPP. Can we top that next year?!?

3rd Annual Jeff's Fun Run Returns to CPP

This year's Jeff's Fun Run, organized by Pickups Limited, was the largest and most successful poker run to date. Event organizer Chris Travers estimated about 200 vehicles took part in the day's festivities. CPP was the first stop last Saturday morning, with Freedom Avenue being taken over by all makes and models of vehicles. It was an amazing sight! Some of our customers that came down to pick up parts were treated to a parade of classic cars and trucks parked on our street. One exclaimed, "I just came down to get my parts and I got the best surprise ever...a whole car show right in front of me!" Jeff's Fun Run is organized every year in honor of Pickups Limited member Jeff Hornsby who passed away 3 years ago. All proceeds will be donated to City of Hope and a memorial plaque will be placed in their gardens this year to mark the club's fund raising efforts in Jeff's name.

The Cars of SEMA 2010

Check out this rockin' video from SEMA 2010. Our very own "on-the-scene" CPP videographer was right in the middle of the action this year and caught some awesome vehicles on film. We captured everything from classic cars and trucks to the wildest tuners, low-riders and late models. Enjoy!
