There are many local shops all over the country that specialize in not just restoring cars, but car parts as well. You may also find plenty of specialty restoration services online as well. This will normally require you shipping the part to the shop and more than likely paying for the return shipping, but if this is your only option, it is better than not having the part at all.
Decking up your car to suit your tastes is entirely an individual choice. This is accomplished is by addition of aftermarket car parts to the vehicles or by replacing the already existing parts with aftermarket car parts. Aftermarket parts serve three purposes: some parts are only for boosting performance, some for changing the look and feel of the vehicle, and some for increasing the vehicle's efficiency.
Online, there are usually images of the used car parts that the websites are selling. Be careful when shopping online, because they may not sell you the exact part that you are looking at in the image. Sometimes parts are already painted, and they might not match the paint that is on your car. Sometimes, the parts are available without paint. If you are replacing auto body, the color of the paint is important because your car will look strange or unfinished if it is unpainted or if it is the wrong color. Talk to a body shop before you buy this type of part online.
Perhaps that's the beauty of it. Take an older car, dress it up with some performance grade car parts and turn an unlikely and unassuming vehicle into something that will turn heads everywhere you take 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.
