    The phone number listed For Buick Parts Specialist is Speedway automotives phone number here in Phoenix. They probably use that other name for their Ebay parts sales. A lot of us here on the Board know about Speedway. From my personal experiances with them,not good. The only thing I found worse then their prices was their attitude.

    What you call Junk in AZ is gold here in the rust belt........ Hard to believe how good the bodies are on those "Scrap" cars.....

    Exactly the same reaction I have everytime I see junkyard photos from the southwest.

    I have given up searching for usable parts up here. I understand that rust free body parts are going to be at a premium and I will have to pay if I want to play.

    I did call them about an engine/transmission and they quoted me $1500 shipped to my door. A little much if you ask me

    GStage1 Always looking for parts!

    You need to post your wanted parts here. Items can be found for reasonable prices but you need to be patient. Sometimes, you can find deals on Ebay.

    Interesting. Reatta parts?!? That's a very niche specialty. One could die on the vine, doing that.
    The top picture appears to be Speedway Motors, the chain aftermarket parts store. Am guessing second picture is an old one of a previous Broadway Blvd. Phoenix Speedway Automotive location. The third am guessing you took in '08 of what they had then.

    Hey, just wished to say thanks for posting a reply.
    Speedway Motors was founded in 1952 in Lincoln, NE. It appears to be a Different outfit than the Guy on Broadway in Phoenix. He's Speedway Automotive, apparently. Reatta Guy.
    Speedway Motors opened a Distribution Warehouse in Tolleson, AZ last year, according to their website. Speedway Motors is more akin to "Jegs" or "Summit". Selling aftermarket parts.
