During a trip to Las Vegas April 2015 we meet up with our parts supplier Scott Drake.
A little background
The Drake Automotive Group has been helping enthusiasts create the vehicle of their dreams for over three decades now. Their parts popularity is down to the highest quality reproduction and OEM-level aftermarket parts that help them express their own sense of performance and style. A once hopeful start-up business with just one product in their inventory for the Ford Mustang, has grown into an international company with products for a wide range of vehicles. Based in Henderson, Nevada, just outside Las Vegas, their corporate facility spans more than two-acres that includes engineering, manufacturing, sales and warehouse space. Every day more than 10,000 products are shipped to their dealers worldwide, making Drake Automotive Group one of the largest classic Mustang and OEM aftermarket parts manufacturers in the world. While Scott Drake made a start in the Mustang market, over the years they have diversified their product line to include Off-Road and Muscle car products. They have also started to manufacture a variety of GM and MOPAR parts. As a result the Scott Drake brand name has become an iconic brand that redefines quality reproduction and aftermarket parts. As Mustang Maniac are an authorised Scott Drake dealer we know and trust their quality of parts for fit style and performance, they even offer a satisfaction guarantee on the products.
Their offices, show rooms, engineering and parts departments are a real show case Premises.
I managed to meet Scott himself, along with my sales manager Stephan and enjoyed a good lunch meeting discussing my future business plans and where Scott Drake fits into those plans.
I was shown around the premises and Scott shared a couple of photos with me.
Scott kindly gave me a set of keys for their very own Research & Development 5.0 2015 Mustang GT so that I could take it for a spin.
The car has a great feature under the hood which is not usually seen, which is a shame. The Mustang Logo that is covered by hood insulation.
Scott presented Mustang Maniac another Silver Award for 2014 which we were honoured to accept and will place alongside our other awards from Scott Drake.
