    looking to buy...again

    A few years ago I was looking at a 91 SC with an auto but decided I would rather hold off on it, well now I found an 89 5 speed SC And its too good of a deal I need to snag it up haha, question is how much has aftermarket support grew in the last 4-5years?

    Aftermarket? I think, if anything, it's shrunk.

    We have a few custom accessories today that we didn't have 5 years ago, but parts wise, as an example, early model SC crank sensors are no longer available new.

    We've lost one SC-centric specific supplier/vendor, but I think in general the same items that were available 5 years ago are still available now.

    Try https://www.supercoupeperformance.com & https://magnumpowers.com

    I use the term 'supplier' generically, meaning vendor, outlet, source, etc.

    Talking about http://www.spinningwheels-sc.com

    http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthre...ll-in-Business

    What kind of parts?
    Victor helped to source early ABS accumulators & NOS pumps, certain aluminum pulleys, ARC shocks, as i recall. Bought a lot of parts from spinningwheels over the years, always looked forward to see what would show up for my Anny on their site next.

    These days I see a lot of 'call for pricing' which tells me inventory from remaining vendors has maybe dried up on things that used to be readily available.

    Anything you've noticed?
