Default Venting!

Hey Guy and Gals,(and those still searching for identity) ...
I have a 62 along with 71, 72 and 00 vettes. (along with other cars and bikes, kids, g-kids). Here's my beef. When I go to C.C, W....ox, P...gon, etc...I wish I could enter 1962 Corvette Parts and get JUST that... no engraved tumblers or tee shirts or blah blah blah... "Just the 1962 parts, Mam!"(Hi-way Patrol reference). Am I doing something wrong? Each time I search or scroll I find myself looking at emblems for a 1994, a C5 car cover or some other [email protected]#$. I've been doing this Corvette thing for a while but it's only when I start searching for a $1K-2K laundry list of bolts, weatherstrip, interior, etc that it pisses me off again. So there is my vent...I'm calm now, the Titos is starting to take effect. 42nd anniversary tomorrow... I guess I should be able to handle this issue. Cheers, Mike

Mike, it only took me a day to get past this on CC's website, so you should be on the mend by tomorrow. Let us know how you are doing.

The new CC website allows you to lock in your year so the search limits the results. Others require an extra click or two. And others require patience and your choice of adult beverage.

Thanks guys... I agree CC is the best and that's where I built my list. Just to keep everyone honest, I just wish they had some program for big orders to help on cost and/or shipping. They were pretty blunt with "we don't offer any discounts". Over the years(been doing this since before the interweb and "the google") I remember discounts for over 1K and/or doing a full restore that might take 10-12 months. Anyway the 62 comes back from paint in a couple weeks so I have to pull the trigger at some point. Mike

Paragon offers 10% discount for NCRS. Call them with your number and then it should display when ordering. They only require an extra click to limit results.

Mike,

Double check with Corvette Central...Their latest catalog still has the private individual "Start to Finish" discount plan listed. I took advantage of the plan a few years ago. I think there are minimum purchase requirements and some other rules but you don't have to be an "auto related business" as required for their Dealer Wholesale Program.

“Start to Finish” requires $2500 initial order.

Hmmm. I always use the printed catalogs, I don't have any problems. I also use maps instead of GPS, I don't have any problems.

Paragon has a "Stick With Us and Save", when you start a project and place a minimum $500 order, you get 15% off Paragon manufactured items for that project.

I had to call a second time. They told me when I placed an order it is hand-entered, and the discount would be applied. It was, and after that first order the discount displayed.
