year one vs. classic industries

hello,

well, i have begun to continue the restoration on my 67 SS 350 Camaro. i've gotten the go ahead from the wife, so it is on now.

my question is, is i have been looking for replacement parts from the listed companies, and i was wondering which company had the better products for my application. i have dealt with classic industries before, and have had good results, but i keep hearing a lot about year one. upon checking their online catalog it appears they sell the same quality(and manufacturer) as classic industries, only with a 20% mark up. if this is true, why should anyone go with them? thanks for your opinions, and answers.

Year One is a decent source. However, in my experience, they are about 20% higher. The service was good though, compared to some places I have ordered from. I found a different company with good service and good prices, but they are pontiac only, so it probably won't help you. I would say if you have had good experience with classic industries, I would stick with them, as long as they have the part you need. I have never used classic industries, so I cannot make a judgment on the quality of their products.

I've bought suspension parts from Ricks First Gen (www.firstgen.com) for my 69 camaro. Quality was good on everything except the trim rings which were scratched up. Lady at the return desk tried to tell me that was normal... after laughing at her for a little while she agreed to refund my money. Their free shipping on large orders is via the slowest land route in history, however, it was free. All in all I'm satisfied with them and would use them again. One word of warning, their website does not properly reflect shipping charges for over-weight items. I recently ordered some rims from them... got an email the following day explaining the shipping charges where different then shown. I checked some other sites and their rates where in line so I went ahead ahead and bought them... kind of annoying but not a big deal.
