Patterson Racing products in the early 80's.
They went to GT to up the amount of product.
Which really wasn't a totally good move on Patterson's part. Don't exactly know which year? but the Patterson's wanted to load up on stock for an up coming Christmas, only to have GT scale back on that order and produce an abundance of their own product for that Christmas rush, limiting the supply of Patterson product's. Vance was/is a very good business man. It's just too bad his suppliers were looking out for their own interests and took advantage of the situation, by controlling the competition's presence in the market.
