Camaro New Product: 1970-78 OE-correct Dash Pads

Wednesday, April 24. 2013


After seeing the fit and finish of existing 1970-78 Camaro dash pad reproductions, National Parts Depot made the decision to construct a brand new reproduction worthy of your 1970-78 Camaro restoration. From the stitching detail to the texture and sheen, no detail was missed on this OE-quality exclusive reproduction. Plus, we added additional reinforcement to create a pad that will stand the test of time. Available in black finish, with or without air conditioning.

A buyer or a builder? Part 2

Tuesday, April 16. 2013


I was exposed to the car hobby from an early age. Having a father that was a mechanic, then a salesman, and finally a lease and fleet manager for a variety of General Motors dealerships gave me the inside track to some interesting stories! My dad also exposed me to the racing culture, specifically the drag racing cult. As I grew up...

News on National Parts Depot’s All-GM Oktoberfest car show at Silver Springs Theme Park

Wednesday, April 10. 2013

After 7 years in association with Silver Springs Theme Park to host the All-GM Oktoberfest car show, National Parts Depot regrets to announce that the 2013 edition of the show will not take place. As of February 2013, an agreement was reached to transfer control of the park from current lease holder Palace Entertainment to the state of Florida, which will begin on October 1st, 2013.


National Parts Depot feels that trying to put the All-GM show together with so many unresolved and potentially-unfinished projects on the table, as well as a transfer of leadership less than one week before the proposed show date, could prove troublesome. As a result, we are working towards the possibility of bringing the All-GM Oktoberfest show back to Silver Springs Theme Park in October 2014, and we are still hoping to host our Ford & Mustang Roundup in January 2014 without interruption.


We will post updates to the website as soon as they become available on the 2014 show.


A buyer or a builder?

Does seeing this picture of a 1967 Camaro project give you ideas, or
make you want to keep scrolling? That’s the great thing about the car hobby;
there are numerous ways to enjoy it. At the age of 14 when I got my first car,
I looked forward to the little projects and working on it. Having a father that
encouraged learning more and more about car stuff, it seemed natural. Flash
forward 16 years....

The Photo Shoot

Tuesday, April 2. 2013

Last minute ideas can sometimes give you a result you’d never expect. I’ve come from using 110 and 35 mm cameras to the latest in digital technology, and I’m still amazed by what I’ve overlooked in the past on photos. Easter was only a few days away when National Parts Depot MIS director Robert Gunn suggested the idea of doing something for our Facebook page for the Sunday holiday. After the egg and bunny ideas had come and gone...
