Thank you for your interest in Vic Performance Parts. This is the bit where you find out who we are, what we do and how we came to be.
Vic Performance Parts is our brainchild and like our children, it’s in its formative years. In fact it was after the arrival of our second child that we realised the traditional method of exchanging time for money was just not going to suit us. We needed the time to attend to our children but like many young families these days, we still needed the second income.
So, with Brad’s 20+ years experience in the automotive industry and my (Kylie) background in finance, accounting and financial systems, we decided to turn the blindingly obvious into a working venture.
We already had the customer service thing down. We knew the importance of a quick and timely response. So we figured that with a bit of ingenuity and a drive to create fantastic after sales service, we could create the kind of customer satisfaction that would bring word of mouth referrals.
Brad’s credibility comes from a wealth of experience in the family business “Racebrakes”, where he has spent most of his career. To add to his vast experience he has also held management positions in some of Australia’s most respected automotive companies such as Castle Automotive Enterprises, Castle Headers and the Castlemaine Rod Shop. With pedigree like this, assisting customers to fit parts to their vehicles is the fun part of Brad’s day.
And speaking of getting his hands dirty, Brad has a pet project. Someday in the not too distant future Australia is going to witness Brad’s ultimate dream, his XD Falcon drag car. And the transformation is already underway so watch this space.
I, on the other hand have a different kind of horse power running through my veins. I have always been a horse lover and have competed in events in my younger days. Now that the kids are getting a little older I am feeling the pull to return to competition. I can see the day coming where I will have a show pony for the kids and we can all attend shows together.
Our oldest child Kyle however is somewhat of a “mini me” of Brad and is obsessed with all things automotive. If it’s shiny, loud and fast, his attention is fixated and the rest of the world is completely blocked out.
The youngest, “Miss Molly Rose” is horse crazy. (Ah, a girl after my own heart.) On occasion she has flipped her rocking horse straight over and we have had to remove it until she calms down. And if she slips out the back door, it’s a race to catch her before she gets into the horse yard.
As you can see we are a second generation family business in the performance auto parts industry. We take pride in providing exceptional customer service and strive to exceed your expectations. By assisting our customers in the right direction we aim to add value and hopefully forge some much needed trust back into the automotive industry.
In our grandparent’s generation, a man’s word was his guarantee. This is a quality you will find when you deal with us.
We hope you find what you are looking for but if you need something which is not on display, simply email us or better yet, call us and we will be happy to assist you.
Also, keep an eye out for our appearances at various swap meets around the country. And if you see us, come and say gidday.
Have a great day and thanks for checking out our Ebay Store.
Brad and Kylie.
