Incredible source for restoration supplies.  Quality products.  Fast service.

*          Mid America Motorworks

Reliable, fast service.  Good prices.  Excellent customer service.  Excellent web site.  Only complaint is that they do not automatically provide tracking numbers.  They do notify you that items will ship after you place the order.

*          Corvette America

Interior and other Corvette parts.  Their parts are often resold by others.  The also run a Corvette Club at http://clubs.corvetteamerica.com/cf/

*          Paragon Reproductions

I've used them for a few parts.  Reliable, fast service.  Very good prices.   Web site is difficult to use but they have a great catalog to download.  Customer service is responsive.

*          Zip Products

Reliable, fast service.  Good prices.  Excellent customer service.  Ok web site.  Could use a few more pictures and better descriptions.  Excellent order communications.  Always provide tracking numbers automatically.  My only complaint is that some items are not in stock.  You will not know this until after the order is placed and they email the confirmation.

*          ToolSource.com

Great place to find tools for most any application.  I bought an A/C Flush Gun Kit, a gallon of A/C Flush, and a Universal Dial Indicator.  Reliable, fast service.  Ok prices.  You'll certainly find that tool you need without searching all over town.  Excellent customer service.  Good web site.

*          RockAuto.com

Good for generic items that you might pickup at the parts store IF your local parts store had them in stock.  I like to order stuff and forget about it.  Reliable, fast service.  Good prices.  Excellent customer service.  Good web site.

*          B-quiet.com

Sound deader product.  I covered the interior of my Vette with their Brown Bread, V-Comp, and L-Comp products. See the photo gallery for pictures.  Excellent products.  Reliable, fast service.  Good prices.  Excellent customer service.  Good web site.  Check my photos of the installation of this product.

*          Lectric Limited Inc. 

Just ran across them.  I have not ordered from them but what they provide is unique and might be useful to others.  The following is from their website:  "Specializing in Automotive Wiring Harnesses and Wiring Products for the Restoration Industry.  Manufacturing automotive wiring products for 30 years."  If you check out their site, this is no exaggeration.  If you have a need for wiring and temperature sensors for your GM, Chrysler, AMC, or Jeep vehicle, this is the place.  No Fords.  Check out their excellent FAQ.  They know wiring!  Absolutely the best site I've run across for these products.

*          Ssnake-Oyl Products

Seat Belt Restoration - $$$$

*          Sanderson Headers

They have short headers for C3's.  Even for D Port Heads.

My favorite eBay Parts Suppliers

Too many to list every one.  Here are some reliable resellers of Vette parts:

*          acandheaterparts

*          desertapache

*          mrpriz

*          wilcox_Inc

*          70stingray

*          vettepeople

*          noahperformance / restoration-warehouse

*          $mygarage$

*          greenwoodchevy

*          partsladi

*          corvettemack

*          fastvette00

*          wguinther

*          vetteman904

*          vettevisions

*          parts4corvettes

I also had a few negative experiences.  I learned that PayPal Buyer Protection was absolutely worthless when you run into problems with products.  It's actually seller protection.  PayPal has no value what so ever if you use it outside eBay.  Just use your credit card unless you can afford to loose the cash.

I received a few misrepresented parts.  The worst ones are documented below
