    Has anyone ever dealt with these guys?If so I'd like to hear about their experiences with them.I'm getting ready to drop some serious cash for parts and am looking to get the most bang for my money.If I buy into their dealer program,I can get the parts for 15-20% over jobber.Can I get a better deal from another company?

    Hey Ive delt with Jay from Rod Parts Warehouse a bit. Ok heres the deal, Jay, i think hes the owner, is a tremendously nice guy. BUT he is very scatterbrained and will forget what he talked to you about or forget to get your parts and stuff. BUT(yes another but) if you remind him he will alway come trhough.

    I was gonna drop some big money too but Rod Parts Warehouse is best for cash and carry. If he has it at a show and you have cash i think hes good to go with. But if you give him a credit card # and he's gonna ship the stuff i heard it takes a VERY long time to get your parts. And im not sure about all the time but at shows he has the best prices in the Entire place. He will beat ANYBODYS price at shows.

    At the Nationals i needed a clutch/brake assembly and only one company had one there that i needed. Jay deals with these guys so he went and bought it from them at there dealer price and sold it to us for like 5 dollars more than what he payd. So he is really good about savin you money.

    I'm getting ready to build a 32 roadster,will need everything.I haven't done anything carwise for myself in about 3-4 years,and I'm way overdue.This car will be done with the intentions to sell,so it's gonna be done with the shiny paint,chrome,and billet goodies.I'm trying to get away from the collision repair side of the business.The "goldchainers" will be my target market!

    I bought a Cooling Components elec fan/shroud for my 32 from there about 3 weeks ago. Took a little over a week to get it but saved me about $30 on a $200 purchase. Plus mail order outa state so no sales tax. I like to buy locally but when you spend a couple thousand $ the $160 sales tax saved buys a lotta parts.
