Default Cartouche

I noticed today that Cartouche is advertised on the MAFCA website. I thought Mac's closed them down long ago. What gives?
Just checked again and it didn't show up, but does after refreshing the page a few times. Must be some random left-over advertising within their website.

Brent, do you know if MAC's/Eckler's/Turn 5 is still in the Model A business? I used to order from them occasionally but I am now reluctant to. They did have some items I that other vendors didn't carry. Lots of rumors going around.

Turn 5 doesn't care about Model A's or early V8s. I suggest finding another parts vendor that is actually reputable.

I just went through the ecklers A and AA site. They had a large inventory, and the prices seemed in line. I think the site could have been better laid out, but its still another source for parts.

Well a well laid out website does not mean:
1. They actually have it
2. They have good service
3. They know their parts
4. They understand your car and actual needs

Beware

Why do the Model A hobby gatekeepers bash another source of Model A parts?

I bought my 19 inch tubes with metal stems from Ecklers not long ago. I didn't have any issue with their service. I normally buy from Snyders, but no one else had the tubes in stock.

Answered my own question this morning. I did a search on MAC's website of several items using part #'s from their latest catalog and this is what I get "Your search returned no results".

I see I can get plenty of Nitrous Accessories tho... So I would have to say MAC's/Eckler's/Turn 5 is not in the Model A business.
