Here'* another source. The prices aren't as good, but they are quicker with shipping.

I bought for the first time from Rockauto yesterday... shipping looked like UPS ground and all items were listed as in stock. We'll see how long it takes.

Hey go to www.kingpontiac.com or call them at Phone: (301) 948-9111 Tell them you're from BC for a discount.

... Go to either Dal at VanDevere Olds ( [email protected] or 877-448-5451) or www.rmsautoparts.com RMS is Paypal only, but I've gotten GREAT service from them. They cater to the b,f, and y-bodies, but will get ANYTHING AC Delco that you want. They are both priced as good or better than GM Parts Direct without the we're-on-crack shipping and handling charges!
I personally can't speak for any of these, but all have been endorsed by someone or the other on here at one time recently.

I like Rockauto. Great prices, I got discounts, I always use them for parts. If they don;t have one, I use GM Parts Direct.

I've purchased a number of times from Rockauto and received everything 3-4 days from the time the order was placed.

all i can say is don't trust GMPD'* online catolog... it listed the wrong part number for an L67 alternator... got it in the mail, and they won't take it back. so if you know anyone that needs an alternator for a (91-92 ... i think) 3800 supercharged, let me know, i'm in bad need of money and i don't need the alternator...

enough hijacking. i might try rocksauto sometime, seems good, will wait for Bill'* ship time.

Same with me. I ordered from Rockauto, my parts were at my door in 3 days.
