    Here's the link (hope it works) to the virtual tour of Roblins Garage in Demorestville. I know where he's located and I'm only about 35 mins away from him, but due to my scheduling I don't know when I'd be able to go over. This guy is reasonable for pricing plus he also has some NOS parts as he used to own a Dodge dealership in Picton. I want to go to his yard to look for parts for my '73 but just can't find the time. The location is a little tricky to find if you are not familiar with the area (there is a map on the website) Demorestville is a little village in Prince Edward County just south of Belleville Ontario (for those not from the area). I hope someone can help grassy out here.:thumleft:

    Thanks guys...I am looking for 2 15* 8 inch Rallye rims with rings ..the two acorn things on my 14 should work...I think large bolt but something tells me my 8 3/4 is small..

    I have found a few used but they are more enpensive than new...are the re pops that bad ?

    I am suffering here because we do not have a junkyard that has early mopar...there is no rush so I thught that anyone is passing that place that they could drop in..I find that if you ar standing in front of them that they take you a bit more seriously..

    Thanks, Ian.

Still Pulling Parts Off Cars Even In Winter, He Has Crushed A lot Of Cars,But Not Sure What Is Left. Not Much Left On Any A-Bodies Cause I Pretty Much Picked Them Clean. Just PM Me Here And I Can Give Him A Call.

    moparwedden,

    I appreciate this.

    I wasn't sure but thanks for the offer..it seems to me that folks want more for the old stuff that what I can buy new..and in the area of rims..perhaps new is better than old..

    I was under the impression that he had a vast amounts of product..the reason I wanted someone to go there because of an experience that I had last summer.

    I contacted a junk yard in Truro..that is a two hour drive for me one way..about a part for the Duster. They asked me to call so I did and they said they had the part and no problems. I jumped in my truck which gets @ 22 mph and headed to Truro..It was raining slightly when I arrived. At first, they didn't know who I was but I kept the name of the dude. There were 3 guys behind the counter (that included the dude that I talked to). As I was trying to talk to the gent, he kept answering the phone..the other guys were doing nothing..finally, after him finishing the third call, buddy remembered what I wanted but he said sorry, his staff does not go out in the yard when it is raining..come back another day..I told him where I lived again and so sorry, no can do..so I got a bit lost leaving Truro and passed another salvage yard that I hadn’t known about..went in..the parts guy thought they may have one..assigned a guy and a truck to me and we went searching...found the part and left.

    I just figured that if someone lived close, they could pop in for me.

    Ian.

    Hi Grassy, I am not sure if I am too late for this info, but I deal with a guy out in Beaverton, Ontario called National moparts inc. www.nationalmoparts.com. They are reasonable with pricing. They have a 188 number which is toll free from Ontario. My advice would be to call them with your needs as email takes a few days for a response. Ask for Rick, Nigel or Kim. They also offer shipping at good rates.

    why don't you get on the phone and call them, see if they have, then a member can help out.
    I have to go that way (not close, but close enough) but you need to talk to them first.

    66,

    Thank-you, I really appreciate your offer. I hurt myself in August and no work has been done on the car since then so we are way behind. It has been suggested to me that I should stopbuying for awhile.

    I wouldn't mind a rain check on the offer.

    Ian :)
