Hot Rod
Street Rod, Hot Rod & Custom Rod. The naming conventions can be confusing, but the formula is simple; take an early-bodied car, drop in a modern driveline and then make it safe by updating the brakes, suspension and steering. In addition to improved performance, the other prevailing characteristic of a Street Rod is a modified appearance. Chopped tops, channeled floors, Frenched lights, and shaved trim often add streamlined appeal to these vintage cars. Shop Hot Rod Now
Classic Truck
In the years following World War II, manufacturers unveiled all-new pickup trucks aimed at a wider audience than farm and industrial use. With innovations like lowered cab heights, two-tone paint jobs, independent front suspensions, and the availability of automatic transmissions, it’s easy to see how these trucks made the transition from a workhorse only role to something enjoyed every day.

Muscle Car
The 1960s was arguably the most exciting decade in American automotive history. Gas prices were low and compression ratios were high. Manufacturers pumped out dozens of high-performance cars with large displacement V8 engines designed for brutal acceleration. GM, Ford, Chrysler, and even AMC equipped their mid-size models with exotic names and muscular looks in order to attract customers. They spent millions on ad campaigns to reinforce the performance image of their brands. Shop Muscle Car Now

Custom cars & performance are embedded into our DNA. Many of us seek to fulfill our automotive destiny by doing it the old fashion way; take what we can find and work it over until it shines. All you need is ambition, some tools and some aftermarket car parts websites.

Customizing you cars appearance, or improving its performance, means you are going to be delving into an ocean of aftermarket performance parts. It’s a jungle out there. Buying aftermarket performance car parts can be difficult. We've prepared some tips on how to get started.

How to Custom Build a Car

First things are first. You have to make a list, and break your car project down. If your car project is already in good shape, but just needs maybe an interior upgrade, or engine refresh, that’s a bit simpler to accomplish. No matter the scope of your project, you have to get it organized. Here is some advise:

  • Make an outline of your project plans in a planner notebook
  • Make some drawings on the floor and come up with some actual dimensions
  • Build the frame and source the axles, steering & suspension pieces; add brakes wheels and tires to create a rolling chassis
  • Fabricate and/or repair the body, fixing any rust or dents before painting the car and installing trim
  • Attach the body to the frame, afterwards running necessary plumbing, electrical and weatherstrip
  • Rebuild the engine, or source a crate engine, and transmission; install as a single unit
  • Add vital fluids to braking, cooling, engine, and driveline systems

Ideas for Car Accessories

Not everybody out there is building a car from scratch. Many of you might be working on a Pro-Touring muscle car, making a statement with a Rat Rod, waxing nostalgic with a Gasser build, or designing a Lead Sled or '60s Custom that really turns heads. Some might be simply improving the stance of their car with a lowering kit or improving how it handles with an IFS kit. No matter what your project is, the rules remain the same. You must quantify your project and identify the aftermarket performance car parts you need to get it done. 

Where to Buy Performance Parts

Your quest for finding the correct aftermarket performance parts will probably start with you looking on your phone or computer. You might be drawn to something you saw on an online marketplace or at a salvage yard online.
