When a classic car needs to be repaired, there are often 2 choices for the finding the right part. One is to engage the services of someone who specializes in making the parts for a specific car from scratch. The other is to call junk yards in Florida or elsewhere to see if they may have a car with a compatible part in the yard. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Here are a couple for comparison.
Cost of a Part
A newly made part is probably going to be more expensive. Even though most cars come off an assembly line, there are times when specific parts are no longer manufactured because it isn't cost-efficient to do so. When a part has to be made by someone who specializes in making the part, a car enthusiast can expect the cost to be exceptionally high. If a junk yard has the particular part in one of its vehicles, often the cost is much less to get the part than it is to have it built from scratch.
Whether it is being handmade or the person is scouring junk yards in Florida, time can be a factor. Someone who makes car parts can tell the car enthusiast how long it will take to get the part. Junk yards do not have that luxury. They do not know when a certain type of vehicle will be brought in. Additionally, the time it takes to call junkyards and then to find the vehicle in question and see if the part is still attached may seem daunting. The question that the person has to ask is how much his or her time is worth. Someone who is lucky may be able to find the car part quickly and with just a couple of calls.
