      Hey Queenie, you need to ditch those guys and cancel the order. Call up some of our sponsors here they'll hook you up quick. Dixie restorations is one I routinely have used in the past.

        Mancini Racing use to sell some restoration trim pieces too, you could call & see availability thru them also, I've gotten a few thing from them over the years {trim type pieces} I'm not sure who makes them for Mancini Racing, maybe they could steer you to where to get the emblems directly... http://chucker54.stores.yahoo.net/

            Layson's might have 'em too. They are a sponsor on this site.

              What is it with these guys now? The more I read about Year One, the worse it gets.

              When I owned my restoration shop back in the late '90, early century, they were the go to vendor, everything as advertised, excellent customer service, everything shipped promptly. I needed a top for a '66 Buick LeSabre with a plastic curtain (the LeSabres had glass, but the mechanism for laying the glass down was missing and the owner didn't want to replace it). Year One didn't have it, but within a couple of hours of talking to them, they had a lead on one and sent me to another vendor to get it.

              My god...

              I just browsed their website out of curiosity.

              See, I ordered a couple parts from other vendors yesterday and I wanted to see how year one's pricing compared.

              N96 air grabber to air cleaner seal (the big rubber oval) I ordered from Herbs parts for 85 bucks. Year one has it for $165.99

              The fastener kit to attach said air grabber seal: herbs sold it for $29. year one price is $45.99

              A new yellow cap battery (S24MY) Summit racing had it for $209 with free shipping. Year one price for the very same item, $315.99 plus shipping.

                I've had some issues with Year One also. My suspicion is that as the restoration business has been declining over the past couple of years, they are not keeping things in stock as much anymore and relying on secondary vendors to drop ship for them, which is why they can't tell you when new ones will be in stock because they have no way of knowing.

                It could be ironic that Year One, which was the first major re-pop distributor, could also be the first one out the door.

                I haven't ordered anything from year one in a loooong time, too many other good vendors with better pricing out there, just have to shop a bit.

                Nice pic Queenie!

                    Kind of the way of the world now of days though. Gotta keep your overhead low as possible. Most companies either start cutting people or start cutting inventory.

                    Unfortunately, we are also out-of-stock on that emblem.

                    The original manufacturer of a large number of the reproduction Mopar emblems closed their doors and went out of business a couple of years ago. As far as I know, all that is available is the remaining supply from whomever might have some still in stock on their shelves. I do know manufacturers are starting to produce some emblems in limited quantities, but it might take a while for all of the various model applications to become available again.

                      Year One pissed me off over 20 years ago over a freaking catalog. My wife ordered new carpet, headliner and a bunch of other stuff for my 71 Cuda. Can't remember the exact amount of money that was spent but it was nearly 1000 bucks and she asked for a up to date catalog since she borrowed one from a buddy of mine to make the order. They didn't send one and then wanted me to pay for it when I called about it. I know that sounds kinda trivial but man, you can't send me something like a freaking catalog so I can maybe buy more parts from you?? Cheap bastids in my book and apparently don't want my business. Maybe they treat everyone like that but I usually get catalogs from everyone else after making a purchase or just plain calling and asking for one.

                        I have pent close to $80,000 with year one going back to 1994. Shipping on item were double the price of the item most of the time.
                        So after year one stated they had the product in stock and never shipped it I decided to try and find it else where.
                        Well after a little research, I did find it and realized that year one just buys the parts from other venders and the manufacturer where you can buy the same part for 1/2 the price.
                        Lesson learned. Haven't bought a part from year on since 2000
                        THERE SHIPPING PRICES ARE RIDICULOUS.
