In an effort to better index some of the regional content added by our members, we have launched a new category entitled Regional Automotive Shop Management Discussions. This new section is currently under the Automotive Repair Shop Management category. The new regional forums are specific to the regional divisions used by the United States Census Bureau:
Division 1: New England (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont)
Division 2: Mid-Atlantic (New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania)
Midwest (Prior to June 1984, the Midwest Region was designated as the North Central Region.)
Division 3: East North Central (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin)
Division 4: West North Central (Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota)
Division 5: South Atlantic (Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington D.C., and West Virginia)
Division 6: East South Central (Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee)
Division 7: West South Central (Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas)
Division 8: Mountain (Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming)
Division 9: Pacific (Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington)
Puerto Rico and other US territories are not part of any census region or census division.
As AutoShopOwner continues to grow, there may be a need for individual US state forums, which we can add at a later date as needed.
If you have any suggestions, please post them, as we are always looking for new ideas to help our members!

So I was wondering if any fellow ASO members ever heard of / been to "The Auto Repair Event" in Las Vegas hosted by Ron Ipach?
If so, is it worthwhile? Is anyone planning on going this year? I plan on attending, so maybe I can meet some of you guys?
Sorry, that's a lot of separate questions...

Due to family issues I have to sell the shop or it's contents. It has been open for almost 2 years and is grossing between 250k-300k per year with only me and 2 employees. I am also willing to sell all the equipment and furniture if buyer does not want to lease in the current location. If interested please email me at [email protected]
