Newsletter – December 2006
Seasons Greetings from your friends at The StreetRod Store !
Much has happened this past year that I would like to cover in this newsletter.
This has been a very busy and exciting year for us and we are looking forward to
I have said it before, and I will say it again that we are very fortunate and blessed
that we meet people who become customers, and customers who become
friends. We are surrounded by people who are always willing to help us when
needed. They say that what goes around, comes around. I guess this is a perfect
example of honesty and the willingness to help does come back to you.
A perfect example of this was our 4 th Annual NJ NSRA Member Appreciation
day. All of us we not prepared for the number of cars that showed up this year. If
it wasn’t for our friends, cars wouldn’t have been parked properly, food wouldn’t
have been prepared on time, and goodie bags would not have been stuffed.
People simply stepped up to help get this rolling smoothly. Our 5 th Annual NSRA
Appreciation Day will be held on June 9 th, 2007 from 10:00am – 3:00pm. We look
forward to seeing you there!
Speaking of the Appreciation Day, did you happen to see us in the November
issue of StreetScene Magazine? For those of you who did not see us, you may
download a copy of the article from our website.
NEW PRODUCTS / LINES
We became dealers for Billet Specialties late in 2006 for Billet Specialties
accessories. The accessory buy-in includes everything offered by Billet
Specialties with the exception of wheels. If you need Billet Specialties wheels, we
can still get them for you thru one of our distributors.

what we have.
UNISTEER PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS

NU-RELICS POWER WINDOWS
Power window kits for antique and classic cars. These kits bolt directly into where
your manual window regulator is and makes installing electric windows a snap.
Install the wiring and presto. . . you have electric windows!
Early in 2006 we became dealers for Wysco Products based in California. This
has been a great addition for us as we are able to offer more great products at
very affordable prices. Wysco Products offers everything from engine dress-up
items to chrome starters, water pumps, fans, etc. We have a very large supply of
products in our store . . . you should plan a trip to check this out!
HOT ROD AIR
Early in 2006 we became dealers for Hot Rod Air. We are happy with this
addition as we can offer more air conditioning solutions for our customers.
Yes, you read it correctly! We added Summit Racing to our line-up. We have
been telling you for years that we can (most times) meet or beat Summit pricing,
and when couldn’t, we would tell you. Now we can offer more lines of products at
We have been carrying Goodmark sheetmetal and reproduction parts for quite
some time now. We will be stocking bumpers and emblems early in 2007.
Rennegade Rod & Custom Fiberglass
We have been dealers for Rennegade Rod & Custom Fiberglass (formally
Clayton Custom) for the past two years. We currently have a Rennegade 1934
Ford body on display in our store. This is a good opportunity to see the quality
and workmanship that goes into each car that is built. Plan a trip to check this
Calendars are in!!!
Better late than never, The StreetRod Store calendars are in. Supplies are limited
so please stop in and pick one up. We regret that due to the high price of
postage, we are unable to mail any calendars this year.
WHAT DID WE LEARN IN 2006 ?
This is a new section that we will have in our newsletter. If you have any tips,
please drop us a line and we will share the knowledge. If you are a manufacturer
that would like us to test and possibly promote a product for you, simply drop us
a line and we will be glad to give it a try.
We learned that Free All penetrating oil works better than any other
product that we have tried. Simply apply to a rusted bolt and allow to sit
for short period of time and the rust wi ll drip from the bolt. You will not
believe how easily the nut/bolt will come off. I will try to get some free
samples for you to try.
We learned that Gliptone Products are great!
If you know us, we try just about every cleaning /
detailing product that we sell before we offer them for
sale. We will not offer a product for sale if we do not
like how it performs. We introduced the entire line of
Gliptone Products during our NSRA Appreciation Day
this year and it has been a hit! We will try to get
Rocco back out this year for our 5 th Annual NSRA
Appreciation Day scheduled for the 2 nd Saturday in June.
As a side note, I decided to clay bar and paste wax my much neglected 1998
Ford F150 pickup before the Merchantville show this year using the Gliptone clay
bar w/body gloss and the carnauba paste wax. I could not believe how much my
We learned that Evapo-Rust safely removes rust from parts and is:
• Environmentally safe
• Does not harm paint, rubber, glass, etc.
Simply dip the part in the Evapo-Rust for a period of time from 20 mins
to a few hours and you will be amazed with the results.
People ask us all of the time what works and what doesn’t. Because we try the
products that we sell makes us better prepared to answer your questions.
Thank you to all of our friends for making 2006 a great year! We wish everyone
all of the best in 2007!
Thank you . . . The StreetRod Store Crew
