Working on classic cars often means sourcing parts to replace worn out or otherwise broken items. That can be simple as calling up your favorite vendor or parts house, or perhaps you prefer to roll up your sleeves and take your toolkit to the junkyard.
A great source for everything from engine parts to trim pieces no vendor is reproducing, a junkyard is where to find parts that finish your project. With some elbow grease and negotiating, it can also keep your balance sheet in the black.

If chasing hard to find parts, you might have a favorite business that you know has a few of the model you are scouting out. Even if you are just going to a new yard to look around, be sure to take a well prepared toolkit to retrieve that piece you just can’t leave without.
So let us know below, what are the best finds you have brought home from a trip to the pick-a-part or junkyard?
