The idea of fixing up cars has been around just about as long as there have been cars to work on. Make them faster, make them shine brighter, make them more comfortable and everything in between has been done to cars. And it doesn't matter what type of car it happens to be or how old it is. It doesn't have to be a sports car. It can be a tired old station wagon, a mini van, a pickup truck, a compact car and everything in between. If it has wheels, with the right car parts and some time and work, you can dress up just about any ride.
The first place that you want to start your search for original parts is with a dealership that sells the make of car that you drive. This is a hit and miss prospect because while dealers are the best place to find OEM parts specific to your make, they may not carry parts for older cars like yours.
But this is not the case. A car like any other machine is made up of hundreds of Car parts that work together to make a car run. All of these parts are crucial to the proper working and smooth running of a car. It may be as trivial as a screw or nut in the Car Engine or Car Gearbox. A loose nut or screw can not only hamper the smooth running of the car, it may even prevent the car from running at all. If it is a crucial nut or screw, such as the ones used in the Wheels of a car, it becomes more essential that they be properly fixed. The Quality, Servicing, Maintenance, and or replacement of Car parts over a period of time is essential and crucial for the proper running and long life of the car.
You will find plenty of specialty parts dealers of virtually any make and model. For example, if you are looking for brand new side car panels for a 1991 Eagle Talon, you are probably going to find them. You may have to dig a little, and they may or may not be expensive, but they are out there waiting to be found.
The next step is to find a repair shop to fix your car. What you will want to do is find a place that will use the car parts you want used in the repair of your car. This is an important step, because some repair shops will use after market parts automatically, but you have to stipulate if you want them to use OEM parts. Unfortunately, it isn't unheard of for shops to use after market parts while still charging you OEM prices, which if you didn't know are more expensive.
