Hi Guys,
Do you know if Johns Classic Cougar parts is still in business ?
I ordered some parts 5-6 weeks ago, but havnt heard any thing ?
According to his webb site, its not confirmed as having left .
I have emailed several times for tracking info ,but i get no reply.
How do i know if he has sent the stuff or not.
Im not impressed with his service.Has any one else had recent experience with this place.

They're on the road a lot attending shows and meets, and they've reduced the store hours, but still open. Plus they've always been a lot easier to reach via phone than e-mail, in my experience. But Dee can usually be reached through the JCC Facebook page, if you need to contact them electronically. She posted this back in January:

"OH MY!!! I don't know where these RUMORS are coming from, but PLEASE...WE ARE NOT OUT OF BUSINESS...WE ARE NOT GOING OUT OF BUSINESS...WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY KIND OF A TRIP...Unless you consider going to Spring Columbus Swap Meet in April a trip...we call it WORK!!! We have closed on Fridays now so John can get some much needed work done in the back shop, in the yard, & do some running he just can't find time to do otherwise.
PLEASE let your Club members, Friends, EVERYONE know the RUMORS ARE FALSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We might only be working 60 instead of 80 hours a week, but we are STILL OPEN & WORKING to help our Cougar Friends with their COUGARS!!!!!
Thanks! John & Dee"

I have never got John or Dee to get back to me via email. They have always been reachable by phone. John has always given me the best deals on parts I needed, if he had them. Far worth the little extra work it might have taken to get in touch.

In the last 6 months I placed several orders with JCC and had good service. The used pieces were as described and orders were shipped promptly. I had several email exchanges with them without issue. One was for a used piece they didn’t have and I received a response the next day. I’ve never had a reason to phone them so no comment on phone response. Seems to me there might a issue with email address or spam filter as the company has been around for many years.
