I don't know if this is the right forum for this, but I got an email from Torrie of FPN. I don't know how many Explorerforum members knew of this before today, but if you agree, then show him your support. Here's the emails:

We are about to embark on our new Spring advertising campaign right now and offering a free entry with every completed order to our SCT chip or flasher contest that we are having during the month of March. What does GTFTYLD mean you may ask?
G = Give
T = The
F = Finger
T = To
Y = Your
L = Local
D = Dealer
We figured why not do what we can to give our very best back to Ford motor company and its dealer network for doing whatever they can to remove our small two man business from existence. As most of you know Ford sent a team of lawyers after us because we used the word Ford in our initial domain and business name since consequently we happened to sell Ford parts and quite a few of them at that. There is nothing like a lawsuit from the home company that profits from your hard work to say thank you for a job well done. It is evident enough Ford dealers cried to Ford corporate to prompt the threat of legal action towards us. The irony behind all of it is that Ford makes money when we sell their parts and the Ford dealers we buy the parts from do as well. So they not only shoot themselves in the foot they are hurting the dealers that sell to us at the same time.
So do your part to let everyone know exactly where you stand and that small business and entrepreneurship is still alive and well in this the US!
The contest is simple. All completed orders placed throughout the month of March are eligible to win. We will randomly pick 1 winner lottery style and the winner can choose between a custom chip or flasher programmed by us:

I really don't need to order anything just yet, but what can I do to let Ford and their dealers know that I support your business? I'd love to be able to do something for ya! Best of luck, and don't worry "fastpartsnetwork" is already book marked in my browser!

You don’t need to do anymore then you just did. The support alone we got today was great to witness. Only a few people yelled at me fewer then I expected. After they shut down my site on 3/1/06 I was completely surprised to watch how quickly I lost business. I knew I would take a hit but not nearly as bad as what happened.,

Well I to add to it I just heard the other day, from a inside source, that fomoco (the parts division) will be filling for bankruptcy in soon. As Delphi did. :rolleyes:

How can that happen? Wow, it doesn't seem possible! But I knew nothing of Delphi, not even that they were GM, but it happened to them...
