I haven't seen a HELP ME FIND thread on here and I thought it might be helpful, since many of us spend a good amount of time on Craigslist/FB. Post that unicorn, challenge priced car, hard to find parts etc. you're looking for and see what the hive can find. I'm willing to help search for and ship parts for anybody that needs it! 
 

Lets see how this goes..

I'll throw one of mine out there to start. 
 

Suzuki Samurai - challenge priced. Everything around here is $4k+
Looking for a cheap one, the cheaper the better.

A set of six "coined", 16", 8 on 6.5" wheels to fit a dual wheel E or F 350 from 1980.  

To expand on a term I just used, Coined wheels have eight bolt  holes, with alternating ones punched up or down, so the wheels lock themselves together.  They are lug centered, not hub centered.  Ford quit using them in 1983, Dodge in 93, but the center holes on the Dodge wheels are smaller.

I learned something new today. I had no idea these were a thing. I found some 17.5" but I'll keep an eye out for 16". Searching for wheels on FB can be a real disaster.

In reply to Streetwiseguy :

So I put some aftermarket wheels on my '89 W250, the concern with them was finding something with a large enough center hole.  Granted mine's not a dually, but in my research I was led to believe the early Ram 3/4 & 1 tons had quite large hubs.  The early '80s Fords are even bigger?

More than one.

I think there's also more than one to help find a cat to adopt...

I feel we could almost do a "Help me find" board. I know I have stuff in my shop that someone else needs but I'm sure as heck not going to post it all. BUT, if there was a board for "I need" threads that we could can/search it would make it easier.

Dodge is about 4 3/4, Ford is 4 15/16 or so.  Not horrible to machine them, but just an added difficulty and expense.

Help me billet wheels. Under 250 for the set, nifty. Preferably 5x5, 5x4.75, or 4x4.5 

15-20 considered! More vintage, the better! Im pretty much embracing my addiction.

My LS heads didn't come with rocker arms.  I'd like a set of those.  Coils as well.

If anyone has another set of LS heads they wouldn't mind seeing get cut up, I'd like to get those from you for future experimentation.

Agreed.

Right now the Suddards are vomiting in a corner somewhere saying "why didn't you tell us that LAST MONTH?"

Not picky as long as it's reliable, compact, and has enough miles that it's broken in, but not so many miles that the undercarriage is loose and sloppy.

A cheap Datsun b210

If anyone sees a blue 80 Fairmont wagon I'm trying to find my mom's old one.

A Xaviere xv585 guitar would be great.

 

I'm up in North Idaho

I would like 6 gm 6.0 ls based engine. That doesn't need a rebuild or cost $1200. $800 or less would be even better.

 

Also looking for a rust free jaguar xjs. 

Cheap w108 mercedes that arent rust. Non-running is very okay.
