Question Group buy EXHAUST. Can we do this?

I was wondering if the OSO members can get together, put a bid package out and have the manufactures bid on a system. Have them all shipped to one location and distribute from there. This would start with the base system, tail pipes would have to be put into groups as to what the numbers would be for each application.
Can we do this? I'll put it together and do the solicitations.
How about some input.

We did this back in November with CMI. I think we had 20 sets sold.

Jones Marine, an advertiser on this board came up with the best group deal. Maybe there are enough people to make a group purchase again.

Heres the thread http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...ight=CMI+group

I put that deal together back in November and we used Brian Jones. He was great to deal with and got us a great price. I'm sure you'll be able to put together another group of guys needing exhaust and mebee...just mebbee, Brian will put together a good price. FYI, we also looked at Teague and Jones beat them, because they did not want to get into a bidding contest...oh well...
