As of Friday May 27th 2005 their doors are closed. Head management walked in unplugged all the computers, handed employees their last paycheck and said thanks for working here.

THIS SUCKS!!! NOW I HAVE TO SCRAPE THEIR LOGOS OFF OF BOTH OF MY REDLINES.

I wondered what the deal was, their site says;
The shop is temporarily closed.
The owner has closed the shop while the stock information is being updated. The site should be open again shortly. Please come back soon.
Hmmmm. I hope no one had parts on order..

I just spoke to my dealer parts guy, he had tried to place an order yesterday to find that they were clearing out. Wes may try to start his own Saturn performance shop if he can find funding.

SMS is being bought out by someone else, and the race team as been bought by a friend of mine.
There will be a press release soon about it.
Hmmm
Yea, their storefront and forums site has been down for a couple weeks now.
Hopefully we will coninue to see the PRO FWD ION out there despite SMS' demise.
Looks like the Lisa and Gary Kubo made a good decision leaving the team after all...

Bought out, by who?

I've heard so many different stories, so who knows what is true. I've heard stories such as they are still open, they have closed for good, they went bankrupt. So who knows what will happen.

holy sh!t. I knew I'd weathered alot of other saturn businesses going under but I never dreamed the factory support of sms would go way of the dodo.

This would also explain why they referred a customer to me to buy cams instead of selling them directly. I found that EXTREMELY puzzling. :confused:
