I have been using Liquid Glass Polish and many of their other products for 35 years. A few months ago, all the on-line outlets for the products ran out of stock (Amazon, AutoBarn, Advance Auto, etc.) I contacted all of them and none knew anything. Liquid Glass Enterprises does not answer their phone or e-mails.

I heard a rumor at a car show that they went out of business but cannot confirm. Does anyone have any idea what happened or know someone who might know? I have enough in stock to last me for many years but I am really curious about this. This product has a huge following especially from older guys like me.

This site shows a bunch of inventory:

edit: oh there's a message that says out of stock and they will update when they know something when you try to place an order.

AutoZone cleared out their stock during the last .97 cent sale.

I used to get the polish from Autobarn. I have contacted them twice by e-mail over the last 6 months. They know nothing.

I have enough LG to last me for the rest of my life. If I somehow run out, I will give Rejex a try.

I contacted Autozone by e-mail as well. They also know nothing. Neither does Amazon. Its like the company just dropped off the face of the earth.

I wonder if it may be related to this situation from 2015?

Good find...sounds like maybe he was starting to lose it back then.
Man, those clothes from the mugshot are straight out of the '70s...

Here's a good replacement company and a little about their history. In the past I've asked for samples and they sent me full size bottles. I won't ask them again because they've already been generous enough with me and don't want to take advantage. You can easily talk via phone/email with the owners.

And the product I recommend:

Duragloss is great stuff. After trying a bunch of products looking for something better, I keep coming back to Duragloss. IMO, it offers the best value, and works as well as products that cost a lot more.

Agreed, I like trying new products but keep coming back to them for certain things. Their shampoo, Aquawax, Sealants, etc... Their sealants don't stain or leave a white powder behind.

It looks like you have nothing to worry about.
