    I paid 150 bucks shipped for 2 rear pacer draglites, in great condition with brand new MT ET Streets on them. $150 bucks got me a dead hook and high 1.7 60's :D

    found a guy on corral locally that had a set of gt40p heads for 290, complete with vavle job, springs, and scoprion 1.6 rockers (brand new are like over 200 bucks) On the car now and couldnt be happier :)

    Thats all the good luck for me so far! Also found locally an upper and lower explorer intake for 200 bucks, not too rare though.

    Got everything i need to convert to rear disk/5 lug from the local u-pull it for $80. Just need to get rotors since the ones on the car were shot, so I just left them there. I thought that was a pretty good deal :shrug:

    Oh, also got a 3.8 taurus fan for $15

    paid $75 for a holley 600 carb. still in the box, never used.

    gave $300 for my 87 notch (4cly, 5spd.). good body, new apc front seats (sold them) and back seat was just redone. and it came with some black projector headlights (ugly, but they are new and they light up the road nicely)

    edit: it pays to have friends with drug problems... sad but true

    Steal of the century - $35 for a complete Boss 302 carb (on eBay)..about to toss it back on, restored.

    Paid $405 for my '64 coupe with a 260 when I was 13, sight unseen. Very good condition for the coin.

    I found a set of Hooker Super Comp Full Length Headers for my '65 289, brand new in the box for $99. I then paid about $200 to have them Ceramic Coated by HPC Coatings. For less than the price of the standard black painted Super Comps from Summit, I have a set of Ceramic Coated Super Comps!

    Got a free brand new 3g alt.

    Got a set of edelbrock RPMS for $600 shipped from cali to ohio. I done a quick clean up job on them and they were in perfect shape.

    Got a new rebuilt 306 for $400 bucks, ALTHOUGH it didn't have in it what i was told it had. But i couldn't beat the price.

    Those might not be the best deals but they seemed pretty good to me 4 years ago when i bought the stuff.

    I haven't gotten any good deals on parts yet, but I got my '04 Z400 last year with 10hrs on it and a couple mods for $2200. My car had 37k miles on it when I bought it, and I paid $5800. I thought that was a really good deal. Oh, I bought a drop in K&N filter at the swap meet last weekend for $10. :shrug:
