Classic Industry has a great catalog! It has pictures of everything! BUT, not all of their parts are good quality.

I usually try to by stuff made in the US. Sometimes that isn't an option. I have about 12 places I buy parts from. I research what others have bought and what is offered from each vendor.

You may want to go to Team Camaro, camaros.net, and search around to see what people are using. You will also get a ton of help from the people there since they have done it all before.

...agree with FlyingSkiBiker, ...there are a lot of suppliers out there that sell different levels of quality parts.
Personally, I have dealt mostly with Rick's First Generation (www.ricksfirstgeneration.com), however they are now owned by Ecklers. I also use HeartbeatCity (www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com). As noted, Team Camaro is an excellent resource for general information...

I have always had good luck with Cars Inc and National Parts Depot. Both local to me and convenient, both great to deal with.

Patti runs the thing and she really knows her parts. She is local to me but I would still use her even if she wasn't.
