Thread: Best Place to Order Parts....

    Best Place to Order Parts....

    I have just sold my 67 Chevy II which was a street car and now it's time for me to do something I've always wanted to. Build a car for the strip!!!!

    It's not going to be anything special but I think it will be a fun challenge!

    I'm going to start by building an engine and then buy a decent rolling chassis and toss it in.

    Now I know that this sort of thing has to be thought through in order to put together a decent working package so here is what I have come up with so far.

    It's going to be a small block chevy (start as a 350 most likely). In fact a friend of mine has an old small block he got out of an early 80's chevy pick up that he said I can have. It has 4 bolt mainshaft journals.

    The desired car for me is going to be mid sized. I'm thinking 82-92 camaro as there are lots of them out there.

    Part of why I'm picking this engine and car is because there are lots of parts options out there and things are reasonably priced.

    So a few questions...

    Where is a good place to buy parts? i.e. summit, jegs, etc...
    Also what websites/books should I be looking at for advice and tips..
    Plus if there's anything else I should be thinking about at the start please let me know. Any comments will be appreciated!!!

    Thanks, Colin.
