Ohhhhhh SIGHHHHHHHHHHH....Seeing that name just brought back so many memories. I lived in Valencia for 19 years of my life from 1973 to 1992. My first boyfriend ran the SCV chapter of Ground Control...(Rob West). I can still see the back glass of his truck. I would say I am sure SOMEONE is using the name, but for different reasons (hell if I had $1 for everyone using "CHOP SHOP" on something I would be a zillionaire!). I would say hunt and peck around more. They might have let the name and club go for a reason and want it to stay dead or like alot of clubs might have just fizzled out.
I say good luck...keep us updated on the progress of your venture! I for one would love to see it revived especially if you plan on using the original design for your logos and glass!
