Dulcinea's Insight

  • Once you have decided on a car to restore, make sure to join a club for that type of car. For example, if you are restoring a Packard, join one of the many Packard clubs. Involving yourself with a greater community helps you get valuable advice and can connect you with lots of parts dealers who specialize in your type of car. To find a club, try looking in local directories like Craigslist or running a general search of your car brand name and the word “club.”
  • Blogs and forums are another great source for finding unusual parts. Post a thread telling the car restoring community what you need, and you might increase your chances of finding it.
  • Don’t hesitate to look at online auctions or community sites like eBay or Craigslist. These are good sources for finding parts at more affordable prices.
  • Weight and location may increase the shipping price of online orders, so be sure to keep that in mind before you confirm an order.
