    I was scrolling through alliance venders. Kiwi konnection has been out of business for probably 12 years. Also many others no longer exist

    While we are at it, lets check out the For Sale Section . Some of the cars and other items go back 10 years. I'd guess many of these are no longer available. Make's it hard to sort through all the pages!

    I can see cleaning up Alliance stuff, but the ads? No. "But why? Old ads and prolly sold!"

    Reference. How long did take to sell? What does that part I want even look like? What's a common problem with a certain part? Applied to cars too, and how have their values changed over time so you don't dump too cheap or ask too much. I dunno, maybe I'm in a short list of folks who do that, use the full battery of info found on these pages to help me along. Or not...?

    I can agree with cleaning up the Alliance vendor pages, I seldom if ever go to the classifieds so that isn't an issue with me but can see it being an issue with guys searching Google for a part when a ten year old link comes up. Some sellers do delete their adds when the item is sold though.

    Kiwi Konnection is still in business, still in Bakersfield. It is now owned by Duane Jones (another Kiwi) who purchased from Squeek Bell.

    Squeak bell isn't involved. It's been called black board hot rods. Duane is a great guy he built my last 32 chassis

    Google Kiwi Konnection, you will see the name is very much still alive. It is now under the umbrella of Duanes business California Roadster Co.
