I just got an email from my sales person at AMD. Cause of the massive reply to the sale. The sale is done and possibly all the items on that list are gone. She said "Because of the massive amount of web orders this created, the sale has been stopped. We think all of the inventory on the sale items is gone. If that changes after those orders are processed." I was in the process of trying to put something together to try and drum up some extra sales as I only basically am a dealer for use of the parts here at my shop. I told Anna it does suck that we are loosing the supply chain but looking at the items I can see why as I am sure the demand just was not there. My guess is we will see more sales like this as the time passes and the ages of people restoring these cars gets higher and the demand gets less and less.

I can see dropping quarter skins to focus more on full panels, though skins are handy & cheaper for stretching wheelwells.
AMD has helped save a lot of cars, so I hope it's just inventory management and not dropping products.

Here is what sucks.... Everyday I get a email from AMD about some part they just released for a Chevy truck or a Ford Torino. They know what I buy... They discontinue a Duster 1/4 Panel without telling us? Why the 50% off fire sale?

Now I can't buy it at 50% off OR full price even!

Now I gotta get ROBBED again like its 1990

Not Cool AMD

AMD has never been a good compony. They never treated their dealers good. Usually if you are a dealer of someones product the dealer runs the specials Not the suppler or they both do. AMD running specials so people bought from them at discounted prices under cutting their dealers, so dealer got screwed with full price stuff.Thats why every dealers stop have inventor and went to drop ship. Plus no emails to dealer that certain parts will be discontinued or on sale before the public. I know its the only place to go but still it's not the way to do business.

WOW we called and they said sorry sale over. We were ordering when the price changed back to normal and that was my friend who is a dealer. That was at 1:50 today. They are messed up.

Exactly what happened to me. Was putting a big order together at lunch time...Then POOF all gone


Called them on the phone and said the sale was now discontinued too and they didn't know what parts if any they had left.

I dont buy the "no demand"
Thats BS, think about it. 70-71 Duster / Demon quarters. They made 150k + of these cars. But they still make 71 charger quarters?
I'm wondering if Fiat is pulling liscensing or tooling in china is going sideways. Shifty business games going on for sure.


I only buy MADE IN USA.

It's crap like this that makes my other make owning buddies laugh at me! It seems we eat a lot of uncecessary $hit when it comes to aftermarket pricing and availability being Mopar owners! mad

From the Passon 855 5 speed debacle where people are on a list for 10 years only to be bypassed by a new "investor" that arbitrarily sells them to whomever to "Moparts discounts" by Mancini Racing that don't exist to Year One bending us over on shipping to Mopar Performance rebranding and tripling the price of speed parts.

It seems like the aftermarket for Mopar is a minefield anymore! Yes, I'm ranting because I'm tired of the abuses!
