PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you don’t want to talk No Problem  - But Please - List those Parts for Sale or Parts Needed!

As you all know locating any parts for these early GM vehicles is tough, the goal of this forum is to bring the restorers, lowriders, street & rat rodders together. 

There are plenty of forums out there and it's a pain trying to locate Chevy/GM parts tucked in all of those Ford, Dodge, Plymouth etc ads. Some forums don't like mixing restored cars with custom cars, we'll focus on the early BOWTIE's....but mix it up some. To be clear we love all vintage vehicles regardless of make..it's just tough locating the Govt Motors stuff!

To assist in your projects advertising is encouraged & will be FREE for both PRIVATE and COMMERCIAL sellers. 
Don't be a Bowtie Parts Hoarder!


Unlike many other forums you are encouraged to mention other websites and/or forums in your posts or signatures. We even have a list of other forums at the bottom of the page….this is a reference site.

Registration is open......SUGGESTIONS FOR FORMAT ARE WELCOME -and- PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT! ........... It's OK to just sign up ONLY to buy/sell parts!

A buddy called the other day and asked if I wanted to buy his tig welder for a good price. I  had been after itt for awhile, and it's real clean hobart tig stick combo. Cart, bottle, and all extras.. I got to start wishing again for more cool stuff.

Rec'd this from the SEMA Action Network

Legislation (HR 1315) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to prohibit the sale of E15 (gasoline that is 15% ethanol), capping the amount of ethanol that can be blended into conventional gasoline at 10%.  The bill also eliminates the Renewable Fuel Standard’s (RFS) mandate that requires 15 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol be blended into the U.S. fuel supply each year.  Ethanol, especially in higher concentrations such as E15, can cause damage to older vehicles. 

You Can Shape the Course of This Proposal

Kevin's Rust in Peace

20 hrs · ..



A while back I was doing some steel strolling across a pasture in western Kansas when I walked upon this really nice grill and front fenders from 1930's Chevrolet.
 When you find a piece like this out in the middle of nowhere all by itself, you have to ask yourself, why is this here and where is the rest of it.
 It is nearly impossible to find a nice grill, but no car to go with it.
 Usually the grill is the first thing a rusty robber will grab or at least the owner will have used it somewhere over the years for something.
 If I was the kind of guy to pick one up, this would have been it, as it was just setting there with the fenders, not bolted to anything.
 Since I would never do that, it is still there and I am sure it will be where it is at for a long time.
 It may never serve anymore purpose than a rain or snow shelter for a passer by rabbit under one of those Detroit stamped fenders, unless there is more to this story we do not know or understand.
 This front sheet metal and grill more than likely were set out in this pasture many years ago when they had absolutely no value to anyone for any reason. Or maybe there is a reason unknown by the guy that put it there years ago.
 I always think about the hands that touched a piece like this the day it was manufactured in the motor city in Michigan. I think about everyone that had an association with it, when it was used as transportation, up until the day it became nothing more than a high plains tombstone for a guy like me to find all these years later and share with the world.
 How do you know it is not trying to tell us something.
 I know of more than one situation where people crossing the plains back in the day of wagon trains that buried family members along the way in a spot just like this, with no marker, that were found when someone all these years later dug a basement for a house or some form of a structure.
 Someone had to decide one day to take this out to where it is and unload it and leave it there for some reason. There is no other parts anywhere around it to be found.
 Maybe I think to much, or maybe this stainless steel pride of Chevrolet was stamped out all those years ago in Detroit to be the pride of this western Kansas prairie in the end and nothing more. RIP
