Look at these two posts by VPA on the VCA "whatcha need for your snake?" Forum.  Is this a kindler gentler VPA, recommending competitive vendors?  Note the post dates.  Quite a significant change over a 6 week period.  Hmmmm. Wonder if something happened?

Re: '02 GTS Rear Brake Rotors
Did you ever check our site? Brand new for under $300 a set (all four). Cheap shipping from Kansas City to Branson too.
Even better if you are a VCA member!

Re: looking for IV gen spindle/upright (pass side rear)
So you are looking for the right rear knuckle? Check with Viper Parts Larry (he is in your neck of the woods) at 971-570-1915, Don Scharf Automotive at 715-479-8597 or X2 Builders at 618-344-9922. This is assuming you are looking for used. For new check with your local dealer or we can supply them as well.

Well let's see. If your intent was to find a way to siphon as much money out of a not for profit company you might:

1) Find a way to get members to increase the annual dues voluntarily (Venom membership)
2) Create a "for profit" sub company in your own name and create incorporation language that prevents transparency
3) Appoint yourself, family members and friends as the board of the for profit company
4) Work out a way to gain parts from the OEM at below market price, without an open or sealed bid process by slick talking and more
5) Work out a deal so your firend's warehouse could be used for part storage. thereby keeping inventory and all close by and out of sight
6) Fire the PR company and create your own for profit company (Coast to Coast) to replace them, with a family member as the owner/president. Use this firm to hire family members and be able to state the the VCA is not paying (directly) for any employees. Even lie about it and call everyone a volunteer.
7) Revise the function of the PR firm so that all advertising revenue goes to the PR firm direct with no oversight
8) Increase the pricetag of the magazine to increase the revenue stream to the personally owned PR company
9) Eliminate the major competition and prevent them from an equal opportunity in using the VCA webspace for advertising
10) Use the leverage of the club to cut exclusive deals with parts manufacturers to eleimnate competition
11) Manage to maintain prototype parts for personal use/evaluation at no cost
12) Use the moderating power of the VCA site to eliminate any discussion that undermine any of the above

Not saying any of the above is true. But wouldn't that make for a perfect opportunity to fleece the Viper owners.  Oops, I forgot one
13) Appoint yourself and your spouse as Hall of Fame inductees with your only claim to fame being the fleecing of the VCA.

I just stumbled on this oldie-but-goodie.....  re-post for timliness.....
