I sure do miss Chevy Duty. They were around 20 years ago. They got bought out by Classic Parts.

Uhm, nope... they changed their name as GM was pulling back on the licensing of the Chevy/Chevrolet name, they didn't get bought out, at that time.

They had some sort of agreement with GM using the Chevy name... but GM gave them a heads up that was going to end... so they changed it to Classic Parts of America.

They may have since been bought out by someone else, I dunno.

I know Classic Parts bought out the URL, name and parts stock of American Classic down in Texas.

That all makes sense, except, the catalog MASSIVELY changed to a commercialized photo-type at the same time leading me to believe it was a purchased deal ?

Did they change the catalog at the same time as the name change ?
