    It`s Been A Great Ride :) Goodbye To My Extended Familia

    Over the last 5 years, I`ve never been more proud over a body of work as being a part of Autopia. After a lot of contemplation, I`m parting ways with PBMG/Vision Investments to focus all of my time and energy into Ray`s Way Detailing.

    My final day will be December 30th 2016. The people I`ve met and the things I`ve learned here have been priceless. It`s been a privilege and an honor to be a part of one of the best communities in the world.

    2017 just seems like the right time to make these changes, and with my first baby boy on the way; I`ve got plenty of motivation to make 2017 a great one. This decision wasn`t made overnight, it`s a decision I think is best for me and my family.

    I`ll still be around the industry and I`m looking forward to getting my hands dirty everyday doing something I love. Autopia will be in great hands with Paul and Vision Investments. I wish everyone here the best and am leaving as an ally and friend.

    Thanks,
    Ray Vega

    Thanks for everything you`ve done here and your continued presence on other sites like Reddit.

    Best of luck with your business. Given what I`ve come to expect out of the customer service I get from you here you should have no problem growing a really loyal base of clients.

    First Nick and now Ray... there goes my two favorite people at both sites.

    Congratulations about the baby, Ray!

    Would you still be active as a member of Autopia Forums? I sure hope so? or maybe let some of us know how to get in touch. Your posts are always appreciated, not just on the deals, sales, or giveaways, but your insights, rayviews and often(some???)times jokes!

    I hope for the best for you and your family, and I am glad I made most if not all of my major purchases while you were a part of PBMG. I am slowing down now since I am well stocked ... Again, congratulations to your family and thank you for your hard work. In my short time here, you`ve made an huge impact on my experience here at Autopia forums, trust me, I don`t visit the sister site much at all.

    Ray,

    Thank you for all your help and support.

    You have been Autopia`s awesome ambassador of good will to this forum, a wealth of information and an all around "make the problems go away guy". For all those roles, I thank you-except for the time you banned me, I am still PO about that, and am appealing -but I`ll let that slide.

    I will miss you a lot. and I hope you will join the forum as a civilian so we can follow your progression as you build Ray`s Way into the company of your dreams.

    BTW-quick housekeeping- Since your the only one at Autopia who knows that I am owed a Large PA High Gloss @ NC for all the recent quality posts I have made can you be sure to send it out prior to your departure?

    On a side note-ATTENTION Autopia`s New Owners- YOU SHOULD TRY TO KEEP THIS GUY-HE IS GREAT. Not sure what happened here, but this is not my first rodeo and he is leaving so close to the new owners take over. If you can keep him YOU SHOULD!


    Ray-Thanks and best of luck,

    Jeff
