Default Vanacor's Corvette Parts

Does anyone know if Vanacor's is still operating? I've tried to call them a couple of times and don't get any answer plus I've seen "rumours" online where they had a fire at their workshop.

Has anyone reveived parts from them recently? Does anyone in New Orleans drive past the place?

I want to get a spoiler and they were the cheapest around...

Weren't they in the news a couple of years ago with the son shooting the father or something to that extent? I think it was them.

A fire in nawlins huh....you'd think that all those water logged buildings were fire proof by now

Yes TT, that was a couple of years ago. Last I read, the son was deemed competent to stand trial but I dunno if he did...

I haven't been by there myself, but my wife said the building is boarded up and appears not to be open for business. She passed by there a couple months ago.

From what I saw the last time I was there, it was a fire trap to start with. Very cluttered facility.

Damn. Thanks for the confirmation though. I wonder if they'll reopen?

There was a guy stocking Vanacor parts and his price was equal to what Dianne was charging. Check out vettesbydesign and see if he has what you need.
