« on: July 09, 2012, 04:44:36 PM »
I am looking for some clips around the engine, shackles add some other parts. are there any yards I should check with? I am in Ohio and used stuff around here isn't good. Ebay doesn't seem to have much either
Thanks

It almost seems as if *all* early Camaros have either been put on the road again, OR scrapped/crunched.....  no Camaro junk yards in my area either anymore...

That's oh so true....   >:(
In fact, over the last year or so it has become more profitable to crunch one than save it.  :'(

Look here:

Good luck in your search.  I still go check on a couple of junk yards every year, just in case....

Yard below is one of the best resources I know of - a lot of old "classics" of all types.  Last time I was there, no 1st Gen Camaros, howerver, a lot of GM products with similar or same general parts, fasteners, etc.

They are located in southern California, on US Hwy 395 just north or Inyokem, CA and the junction of CA State Hwy 14 and US Hwy 395.  Might try givng them a call.  Check out their website - lots of pictures of old rides sitting there in the low humidity of the desert.

Try Camaro Country. Their address is 18591 Centennial Road, Marshall, Michigan 49068. Phone number 269-781-2906. They have New, Used and Reproduction parts. They have a whole yard full of Camaros to pull parts from. I have used them several times.  Scoop

Saw CamaroHub.com on craigslist in L.A. They claim hundreds of cars. I could not get into their website W/O joining.
