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.

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.

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 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?

Ive used all of these when I did my car. I suggest you compare all. I have bought parts from Ames and then the package arrive, unpack it to see they were branded The Parts place, parts resold by ames, and prices different from both vendors. Plus, some carry parts that others might not or are better quality. Something to consider.

I created a thread over at the PY forums with an extensive list of all our cars suppliers here.

After spending lots of money with suppliers since that thread, my two "go to" guys are Performance Years and Ames.

How I made my determination?
Their prices are the most competitive as well as their website the easiest to navigate and look up parts.
They are both on the East coast so it takes a while to get my parts (I'm in CA). In my opinion, OPGI (original parts group) is over priced. Even though they are 35 miles from me, I still shop with Ames & Performance Years. Sure it takes a bit longer to get parts, but their competitive pricing as well as no sales tax keeps me a customer.

Hope this helps
