The junk yard is still the tried and true source for hot rod parts. However, some junk yards prohibit buyers from roaming the yard in search of the right wrecked car to salvage for a part or two. Look for a junk yard that tears down old cars itself and stocks usable parts. Another option is to acquire a “parts car” this vehicle usually has major damage but still has parts that can be utilized in the hot rod. If all else fails Craigslist is also a great resource for finding the hard to find parts. Just beware and try to figure out reasonable prices for parts, sometimes people ask more for a used part than new, if that’s what you want that is ok, just watch your budget.
