X2 for Ames.
I have been buying from them for about 30 years.
Ames Performance Engineering, Classic GTO Parts, Firebird Parts, and Full Size Pontiac restoration parts.

Along with Ames, I have found Inline Tube to be excellent:

In addition to OPGI, I have also had great success with Performance Years.
Performance Years - Your #1 Source for GTO, Firebird, and Classic Pontiac Parts and Accessories

You'll be very surprised how many parts you can get from Rock Auto...they even carry a lot of the Sherman aftermarket steel panels.
RockAuto Parts Catalog

I have also heard good things about California Pontiac Restoration, but I don't have any personal experience with them.

For used parts, I have had good luck with Frank's Pontiac Parts in California.

I am going to try Ames. I have not had great luck with OPGI.

I didn't see anyone mention "Year One". I know they have catalogs for many of the 60's era muscle cars, including Pontiac. Are their parts overpriced? Low quality?

Year One has great stuff too, but usually are higher than the others.

Ames did a good job for me in 2010. Had everything but an auto trans shifter cable.
