For the longest time, especially in the 1980’s, if you need spare car parts, you better be located in the right part of town otherwise it’s going to be very hard on you. You’re pretty much at the mercy of your local car parts store. Back in those days, you’re probably going to have to pay a premium just to get after market parts for your car.
It’s not because there are no original equipment manufacture parts available. The issues is cost because if you’re going to get car parts from the original sub contractor that produce those parts for the direct manufacturer of your car, you’re going to pay through the nose.
After market parts are not cheap, but can you imagine the extra premium you had to pay to go with an OEM part. The alternative to this means living in the right part of town because there are many junkyards around. These locations are not exactly prime real estate. Often times, they are in areas of the city where most people do not want to locate their families. After all, who wants to live right next to an automotive graveyard.
Still, back in those days, you only need to role up your sleeves, get your tool box and head out to a local junkyard so the operator can point out a car that is close to the year of your vehicle. You then take apart the assembly that you need and pay a low price. The awesome thing about this is you get to remove and replace whole assemblies. You’re not paying a premium for a specific part.
The problem is not everybody has this luxury. If you think this is a hassle, you’re absolutely correct. Thankfully, getting access to spare parts around the clock is as easy as looking up 24/7 spares. Just do a search for that search term and you would find an online car parts store that is ready, willing and able to deliver you the car parts you need right on time.
Maybe you got in an accident and you need an assembly. Maybe your car is suffering wear and tear issues. Perhaps your car has some faulty parts and it’s time for you to replace those parts. Whatever your situation may be, you only need to search for 24/7 spares online and you will get the right parts you need to get the job done.
This blog is dedicated to the Smiths and they were very active in the 1980’s. Thankfully, we have great musical memories from the 1980’s, but we don’t have to live with the messed up and problematic car part sourcing realities faced by people three decades ago. The 1980’s was a great decade for music and not much else thanks to the absence of the commercial internet.
If you need 24/7 spares, regardless of where you are, when you need it, you will get access to the car parts you need to get your car up and going again. How awesome is that?
