Letters, photographs and manuscripts welcome. hen you stop and think about the incredible number of products and companies found in the specialty automotive aftermarket, it can be a little overwhelming. Creativity, innovation and a passion for four wheels have come together to form an amazing universe. What that grand scope also means is that no one shop owner, manager or installer can expect to be an expert on everything. Yet, the next customer who walks through your doors may present an opportunity to investigate a new profit center—if you can respond to the request quickly and professionally. When those situations arise, it's nice to have a place to find products you might not normally deal with. The 2019 SHOP Guide is that place. This issue includes contact information listings for more than 500 industry suppliers, as well as product and service categories that cover it all, from grilles to exhaust tips. What's more, these are companies we've worked with at THE SHOP and know carry the parts that professionals use and trust. We call them Recognized Industry Suppliers, and the idea is to save you time (and therefore money) by connecting you directly with businesses that understand what it takes to properly serve the aftermarket. So-called buyer's guides have been a staple in our industry for decades, and even with Google and the internet, they are still popular today—mainly because they can quickly direct you to what you need, when you need it, without a hassle. There are also shop owners who simply skim through the listings, looking for new products to offer. This is the issue to keep on the counter all year long, so you're ready when that next surprise order arrives. Our aftermarket world is a wide, wonderful place. And the opportunities con- tinue to grow.
