Plan on listening to anyone and everyone.  I feel it’s important to pass down knowledge and experience.

Try reaching out to Franks Pontiac Parts and Desert Valley Auto Parts (DVAP) - as a start on your search for parts. Also try downloading a copy of the Pontiac-Oakland Club International's Smoke Signal's magazine. Check out the want ads in the back for parts. Hemmings is also a good source to look for parts. Ebay of course.
