Like it or not, but a car is the most visible statement of luxury and the most potent status symbol. However, is a car and people will not notice it until you customize it according to your taste. That flashy body paint, those shining chrome mirrors and radiator grilles, ultra-luxurious interiors, leather seats, and other additions make your car the object of attention.
Since these independent manufacturers specialize in these fields you can be sure that they are qualitatively good and will last for a long time. These companies are an important part of the automobile industry and supply parts which are used by many people all over the world. The other advantage is that these parts are also more affordable than the original car parts. Due to the recent recession the automobile industry has experienced a slump, but the aftermarket car parts industry has been running fine. This is so because people may have stopped buying cars but maintenance and enhancement will continue.
For older, less synonymous cars, like a 2000 Dodge Caravan for example, fixing up a car like this one could present some unique and challenging problems. You are likely to find a significant lack of performance car parts for this particular model of vehicle. You might find plenty of car panels to do some crash repair, but not much in the line of performance parts. Perhaps some of the more outlandish Internet sites and specialty shops might have some parts to fit this vehicle, but overall, that will be about the extent of it.
What your options are from that point on is one of two things. You can try and salvage the part you have, which you can try this yourself if you have the aptitude for such things. However, in other cases, you might want to enlist the help of a professional.
However, if you are not a purist and aren't looking for some sort of certification that the car is completely original, then you will have a lot more options that will still give your car the look you want of a fully restored classic without all the hassle of digging deep and long to find original parts.
