Formed in 2002, Classic Dash is the original maker of molded ABS composite dash panels. Recently, they acquired Thunder Road, the instrument panel maker that emerged about three years ago. With a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and now called Classic Thunder Road, the Nevada-based firm offers hundreds of dash models for Chevrolets, Fords, Pontiacs, and Chryslers. Using thermo-forming machines and a vacuum process that operates at 320 degrees Fahrenheit, Classic Thunder Road molds sheets of ABS composite into modern, clean and stylish instrument panels. The panels, which are lightweight and exceedingly rigid, are impregnated with a UV inhibitor to protect them against sun damage. Says company President, 49-year-old Greg Wambold, Presently two websites exist; however, both Classic Dashand Thunder Road brands will shortly merge in one website: Classic Thunder Road

This is a great time to clear out your garage of those old parts you won’t be using this year... because  someone else NEEDS them !   People all over the country cruise through these parts ads...  there could be a guy a few miles away who needs those parts you want to sell... and they don’t know you have them.... so LIST YOUR PARTS FREE !  Help a fellow rodders and get some extra $$$ in your pocket.


We also want to remind you about our  EMPLOYMENT Ads .... If you have a job opening in the auto industry this is a great place to advertise it ...  we have many talented people in our readership who may be looking for a job.Check it out here
