Where Do You Get Your Online Parts?

I'm just curious as to where people get their performance parts for thier rides when they get them online?

I get 99% of my parts from Summit Racing. They have a warehouse in Atlanta and I can order something in the morning and it will be on my front porch the next day (assuming it can ship from Atlanta, which I check first). They use UPS, so the tracking is usually really good.

So who do you guys use? Summit, Jegs, Smaller online shops, or someone else?

97 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC (Chip'd, 3.73 T/L... so far... )
97 Ford Aspire (Slow, but getting 36 mpg (f'n Ethenol!! )
84 F250 Dually w/6.9L Diesel (7.3L IDI pending)
73 Mercury Cougar Convertible w/351C 4V (Partially Restored)
69 F100 LWB w/460 Engine
76 Glastron Carlson 23' Jet Boat w/460 CJ Engine

Summit and Jegs are great companies. Summit's online set up is easier to navigate than Jeg's, but it's really close for me. I will always try to buy locally first (support your own neighborhood), next I come here and then mail order.

Mods? Do the ones in the garage waiting to go on the car count?

Many thanks to my fellow Veterans; I am honored to be a part of your ranks.

I used to be a Summit Racing kinda guy. That changed when they opened the warehouse in Atlanta. Now I have to pay 7% sales tax if I order from them. Now it is Jeg's for me.

OEM/FRPP: FastParts LLC, then Dan, then Jason, and finally (and still) Tousley Ford. I tried to stick with vendor on this site, but between not having everything in stock, taxes, and able to match locally, I generally get a price and go with cheaper if I have had a good experience with them.

I probably should have clarified my question a little more. I was mainly interested in “new parts” that you could buy 20 or 30 at one time if you wanted to. Not used parts or “one off’s” like you find on forums, eBay, Craig’s list etc.

But thanks for the replies and info.

I use all three, but I'm mostly Summit. Jeg's has some things that Summit doesn't stock. There aren't any speed shops around here. The closest one is 50 miles away.

Well they aren't like Dan was, getting at least a call ever day from a t-bird owner. Our cars are now at least 11 years old. Cold call any dealer about an 11 year old car and you'll get some dumb questions....

X2!

I've been buying my Ford stuff from Jon since I've known him. He's always been good to me!

If I need something he can't get for whatever reason, then I'll try here or SCCoA. I've bought a few things from Jegs and Summit in the past with no problems.

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Mass. TCCoAers, Send me your info!

I buy all my Ford parts from 93 lx.
