Back in the 80's and 90's, I always saw Aase Bros. ads in VW&Porsche Magazine. Always wanted to go down to So cal and check em out but never did. Guess they met the same fate as Automotion (Sunnyvale), Beach Boys Racing, and VW&Porsche magazine for that matter!

Anyone get any good deals from the closeout?

Aase Brothers closed about 4-5 years ago. They still sell some parts now and then on e-bay. Nice NOS sh!t.

Actually, Performance Products bought out Automotion, and closed the doors in Sunnyvale, moved them to So Cal. I've been to that shop a few years back. Automotion in name only. Their parts catalogue was second to none (quality of stock and always a concourse artistic Porsche on the cover)

Also, Performance Products has a 4WD side to support my hauler.

Beach Boys Racing was doing some great things in the 90's, but if are around, are a shadow of what they used to be. At least thats the way its seems since I don't get the ads when VW&Porsche mag turned into European Car.

Today, Parts Heavan Swap reminded me of the good ol days of Automotion meets.

It is Dave Aasse that sells the NOS stuff on the net...took the good stuff home before the auction....Goes to Germany and buys parts. Talked to him today at Pomona.

Don't know what happened to his brother Dennis.

Yard looked similar to that at the auction, but there were a lot of Mercedes around too. Most of the bodies were crushed, as well a a lot of other stuff as it had no interest at the auction.

Most of the 911's were cut in half, stuffed into containers and went to Australia, along with a shit pile of parts.

A lot had been sold prior to the auction also.

At the Pomona Swap meet? If it was, I heard that isn't as big as it was in the 90's, before ebay. I picked up a steering rack from 911 SC, complete with vented rotors and calipers for $200. Also picked up 911 SC flares for $150 set which went to converting a 912 to modern styling.

I got to go there once around 89 or 90, I think I still have their business card. To this day I have never seen more 914 (running or not) in one place. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/drooley.gif)

They were really helpful the few times I used them, only they never let me wander the yard (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/dry.gif)

Pomona is almost dead for Porsche stuff....couple of vendors. but they all want platnium for their rust. The old diehards, PP, Glenn Sager, C. Thomas Woodward, Paul Bernardo, etc., have moved on (Paul lives in NV and Woodward is moving there). Chip Evaul passed on as we all know.

If you want VW shit, there's piles of it. And English is almost a second language.

Never went to the North end of the lot where all the domestic iron is.

I got to wander the warehouse at PartsHeaven today with my seven yr old. He was telling me there were plenty of parts there that could get my cars going. He seems to forget the money factor. But that was cool in these days of liability.

Oh Yeah....Joe Sharp and /L were there.....and I didn't call them.

After seeing what we saw, Glenn & I decided it will be a long time before we darken the parking lot again. It really wasn't worth the $6 parking and $8 admission.
