    I'm super bummed. My project is a super slow process and last January (2010) I got started clearing the car off, then picked up a Dodge/Plymouth Paddock catalog and folded over many pages of things needed. Well just this weekend I came across the catalog again, after thumbing through it and folding over even more pages I figured let's see if the prices changed at all. Off to web-land to see - :crybaby: - I'm sure you all know what I saw - closed doors last July.

    I was amazed at stuff they had from: main cap bolts for windage tray, windage tray, bolts to secure windage tray, to: fuel tanks, body parts, strip kits, exhaust tips and on and on. Too bad they closed . . .

    Any idea if there's another outfit out there with A similar large selection of items The Paddock used to offer?

    I'm with you on that, should-a done it before, hindsight 20/20 and all that jive - I'm bummed big time. I guess it just adds to the project . . . needed like an 8th hole in the head.

    Jims is BAD, stay away at any cost. search moparts for his name, lots of bait and switch, jacked up prices. unathorized credit card charges and expensive.

    nicksclassicparts.com great guy, honest and good prices.
    bill rolik is another good seller www.billrolikenterprises.com
    mancini is good too.

    year one is only good for wiring harnesses.


    remember the big resto guys like the paddock year one ect are just resellers buying from the same places as the little guys, they just jack up the resale prices more to pay for all that advertising they do.

    I was not aware of that. Never have bought anything, but I usually do a little price checking over there. I'll keep that in mind.

    Saw these vendors listed & checked them out. Found some NOS parts that I'd been trying to find for ages listed on Chets web site with pretty good prices. Decided to call him about them (he doesn't have email). He said his web site is in dire need of an update. Of the 4 parts I wanted he only had one & no idea if he'd ever have any of the others. :crybaby: The search continues.

    PAW is out of the go fast business too, unless you own an early Hemi! Image that entire corporation dwindled down to selling parts for 1 motor!

    there was nothing that was in that Paddock catalog that isn't available somewhere else. they were no different then a year one, a classic industries. just a convenient place to shop and pay a premium price for it.. do a little leg work and you'll find everything ya need and probably cheaper then any of the big catalogs. google is your friend.
