    Haha, yeah, they declared bankruptcy back in the day and the creditors who got nothing were the customers that had paid for orders. (Maybe, seems like I read it on the early internet.)

    Yup, Remember the lake Forest fountain at the entrance to lake Forest. It was just next to the I5 freeway. People would put soap suds in it.

    This was before and when the big lake was being built. I was in 7th or 8th grade and we would go to the school dances at the rec center and learned how to sail on the small lake in the summer time.

    Great memories of being young and growing up in Capistrano Highlands the first housing tract now known as Laguna Hills. Back then as far as you could se was only fields all the way to the ocean, with cows grazing. How things change.

    They are still in operation today as far as I can tell. The Wikipedia piece mentions they were purchased..nothing about bankruptcy. They may have been on th verge of bankruptcy when they were purchased.
    They have expanded their catalog to Motorcycle Parts in addition to cars and trucks, foreign and domestic.
