Most vehicular maintenance could (and probably should) still be performed at home. Even with today's highly computerized engines, it doesn't take a PhD in astrophysics to change the oil or belts. As far as the "growth" area of vehicular customization goes, that has been around since the seventies at least. Most people that customize their cars in that way are not going to go to Discount Auto or Autozone or Pep Boys anyway. That is really a niche market that is catered to by specialty stores (I sincerely hope that I never go into a Discount Auto and see a 'mini-truck' kit).

If DAP were to get bought out (I doubt they will simply fold up shop any time soon), the stock would demand a much higher premium than what it is currently trading at. Ever seen how much real estate this company owns?

Yes, profits have not been increasing lately, but DAP has yet to lose money. As far as them having to embrace a paradigm shift (or any other trendy corporate buzz word), I think they are already in the process of changing their business for the better.
