As the topic says I am in need of both these items. I know The Parts Box(aftermarket resin co.) makes these but it takes about a month to get(Australia to USA). I was wondering if anybody knows of a company here in the states that makes this. Thanks

I order parts from The Parts Box ( http://www.thepartsbox.com/ ) in Australia quite regularly and get delivery in approximately 15-25 days from date of order. My most recent order was last month and took 20 days to arrive here in Seattle, WA, USA. Very good quality for everything I've received from them.

IMHO, the best Stromberg 97's are from Model Car Garage. Very pricey at $14 for three but this includes beautiful photoetched linkages and all fuel lines, etc. ( http://www.modelcarg...0&idproduct=250 )

Norm Veber's Replicas & Miniatures Company of Maryland is without a doubt the finest supplier of cast resin parts in the hobby. His carbs aren't as completely detailed as Model car Garage but they are very nice. He also makes a dropped front axle setup appropriate for a Deuce. However, delivery time is 6-8 weeks. Norm has no website. Here is his info:

Replicas & Miniatures Company of Maryland
317 Roosevelt Ave., S.W
Glen Burnie, MD 21061
Tel: (410) 768-3648 M-F 9AM-5PM EST
e-mail: replmincomd@aol.com

Here`are some Fotki sites with pictures of some of his stuff:

Another very good source for Stromberg '97's is Early Years Resin ( http://earlyyearsres...accessories.htm ) . Service is excellent with typical delivery times being about 2 weeks.
