I was wondering if there were any catalogs out there that were for our B body cars? Having parts and supplies? Almost like some I've seen for older cars for restoration and performance upgrades. I've tried to google it and search here with no luck... Thanks guys!

off top of my head i can only think of Year One having and mention of our cars in their catalog. Don't know of any catalogs of our cars considering how young our cars are compared to what i have seen in catalogs devoted to only one car model.....

I would love to find something like street trends would have. Showing lights, hoods, bumpers,exhaust, and performance. Like the 5.0 mustang magazine.

I would consider asking a dealership. Otherwise you may find something some one is selling on Ebay. Otherwise most catalogs would be online now a days since you can pretty much search for anything online.

I'm looking for something more a long the lines of customizing and parts. Does anyone have a street trends email address? I'd love to get a catalog from them. Or at least ask them if they are gonna offer one again... Thanks all!

I pm'd Street Trends the other day and they got right back to me. They asked all the basics so I assume they are sending me a catalog. Also try Classic Industries. They have Impala up to 96. Year One sells parts but does not have a catalog. Good luck!

FYI-I worked for a Chevrolet Truck restoration company (www.sokyclassics.com) for off and on ten years. During this time, we started making a few parts that were never before available in Taiwan. We even shipped a complete Truck overseas once. We became the ONLY source for several different parts. I have thought about having a few parts made overseas but I just dont know if the demand would be there or not. Of course you have to order a crap load of something before they will make it. Say if you made the arm rests, then they would want around 300 or so per side to be pre-ordered before they would even make them.

Things I've considered:
-Wheel Opening Moldings (Impala)
-Armrest pads (Dyeable)

Can't do anything with GM logos on it.

Yes I was going to recommend Street Trends too. Even if they don't have a current catalogue to mail, I think you can download it. Even if you can't, they basically have an on-line catalogue where you can see everything they have including pics and writeups.

There are a bunch of places that cater to the B-Body including Street Trends, Clear Image Automotive, and many more.

Good luck.

Street Trends & Classic Industries have the only physical catalogs that have parts for our cars, Year One has a virtual catalog addendum for our cars to their Impala catalog. The 90's B-bodies barely get honorable mention in Jegs & Summit as well as other Impala parts sources.

Why do they have to be made overseas? Im sure there is a stateside source, I wonder if they require as many units or the cost is just so much more?

I HATE every time I put a foriegn part on my american car. I almost have a list of the foriegn parts in my head so that I may replace them with american ones when they wear out or I find an american made version.
