Here are some more.

Yogi's
Parr Automotive
Sachse (saksee) Rod Shop
C.W. Moss
Southern Rods & Parts

I have ordered tons of stuff from the above vendors while building my 34. All have been great to deal with.

FWIW I would avoid J.C. Whitney, once you get on their mailing list they deluge you with catalogs. I ordered from them once about a year ago and get at least one catalog a week.

I use Southern Rods. They are close to me here in KY and treat me right. Speedway is also a class act.

I'd guess 90 percent of my parts come from Speedway, Summit and Jegs...in that order. Speedway has won me over with their good tech support, competitive pricing, quick delivery, and excellent return policy - at least it's been that way for me.

Obviously Speedway doesn't have everything and in rare instances their price is not the lowest, so I always search and compare before buying. But Speedway ends up getting the brunt of my business.

Oh, and Harbor Freight is the J.C.Whitney for the tool market. Buy once...get a catalog or flier every week FOREVER.
