For older, less synonymous cars, like a 2000 Dodge Caravan for example, fixing up a car like this one could present some unique and challenging problems. You are likely to find a significant lack of performance car parts for this particular model of vehicle. You might find plenty of car panels to do some crash repair, but not much in the line of performance parts. Perhaps some of the more outlandish Internet sites and specialty shops might have some parts to fit this vehicle, but overall, that will be about the extent of it.
In order to avoid this, you want to be sure that your insurance company pays you directly for the repairs as opposed to settling the bill after the repairs are done. This will give you the freedom to have the car repaired where you choose and have the car parts used that you wish to be used.
However, if all this fails and you are still intent on getting factory original parts for your older vehicle you can always try looking for them online. While it is normal to find most car parts stores and manufactures with a significant online presence, there are many more options online than just those.
You will find plenty of specialty parts dealers of virtually any make and model. For example, if you are looking for brand new side car panels for a 1991 Eagle Talon, you are probably going to find them. You may have to dig a little, and they may or may not be expensive, but they are out there waiting to be found.
Perhaps that's the beauty of it. Take an older car, dress it up with some performance grade car parts and turn an unlikely and unassuming vehicle into something that will turn heads everywhere you take it.
