Maybe they shouldn't have charged $600 apiece for mediocre wheels, or $450 for a front grille, or $50 for an oil filler cap. Overpriced hype vs. market reality.

They had some good stuff, like their 3-port solenoid, the only one with a plugin and play connector on the market. It's sad to see them go.
