Adds Additional Revenue Stream to San West; Company to Benefit From Global Sales of Parts

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - San West Inc. (OTCBB: SNWT), an emerging leader in the design, manufacturing, sales and repairs of off-road buggies, and its wholly owned subsidiary, CountyImports.com, today announced the launch of a parts division of the www.CountyImports.com site, at www.CountyImportParts.com. The launch adds yet another revenue stream to CountyImports.com and San West, as the Company is now poised to become the leader in the online distribution of parts and accessories to off-road motorsports enthusiasts around the world.

Frank Drechsler, San West Inc. Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This is another bold step in our efforts to become the one-stop-shop for vehicles, parts, accessories and service for a wide-range of off-road enthusiasts around the globe. Off-road motorsports represents one of the fastest-growing hobbies in America and many other countries, and this rapidly expanding consumer audience is looking for a trusted source for all aspects of this industry. By adding a parts portal at www.CountyImportParts.com, we have expanded our offerings and added a new revenue stream to the San West and www.CountyImports.com family of retail locations and websites. On average, buggy owners spend approximately $5,000 in accessories for each buggy purchased, and San West expects to generate higher than average profit margins on parts when compared to other existing revenue streams. We believe the market for off-road parts is already substantial, and with advertising we can grow the opportunity both domestically and overseas. We are excited to create a channel to address this significant and growing market for parts and accessories and further strengthen our brand within the industry."
