HPF is no more! Bankrupt



Looks like one employee stole a bunch of money from the business so the owner had to let go of all the employees just to try to keep the business a float but the insurance company didnt pay the 200k that was missing and only paid 29k. I'm just reading about this from another forum .. dunno how much is true but this is what I got from it .. they are no more .. went bankrupt.

Sale of Business

employee that got away and was then caught

the arrest date is from Nov 10, 2011 if this happened awhile ago you think we should have heard something earlier about this, also the HPF website still works http://www.horsepowerfreaks.com/

yeah something is not right. im sure HPF is really closed but they wouldn't close because one employee stole something, or because of CC fraud. Its possible it wasn't profitable (how many HPF cars are there out there?)

Their inventory is bought already and if I understood correctly HPF is coming back ,maybe with another name.

Their product was unmatched so was their car preparation! Their kit really worked and they had customers all over the world spending serious money and trusting them, and they always delivered. Hope they come back

I think they tried too hard and expands too fast, they were carrying our stuff for a while but ran into serious logistic problem when they want to sell literally EVERYTHING for every single car out there and we had to pull the plug.

Also, Chris had been playing with Supra before HPF was formed, so most likely another incorporation will be form and sell under another name, most of the stuff they carry like most websites business they don't actually have it in warehouse, they sell it, then file PO with manufacture, then manufacture drop-ship most things.

Same thing with 360 forged and ADV1.
