I ordered some parts from show-cars, but later found out the parts had not been sent. When I called to find out when to expect the parts I was told that they had some problems with taking online orders and asked that I personally provide my credit card info. I was uncomfortable with this and cancelled my order. The person I spoke with said this is a common thing for new orders and I should not have this problem after I was in their "system."

Has anyone else had this experience? I need the parts, but find this very unusual and honestly kinda weird.

I have bought stuff from them in the past and didn't have to do it over the phone. But, nonetheless, your credit card has built in protections against fraudulent charges so I would feel much better giving the CC number as opposed to a money order. Just make sure you monitor the transaction and make sure you get a confirmation email that hopefully provides a tracking number.

Good luck

Okay, just wanted to make sure they were a legitimate company.

Show Cars was started by a 409 guy over 20 years ago. He still has his original black 63 Impala SS 409.

They make or have made all the original reproduction 348 ,409 air cleaners,valve covers, clutch linkage, 409 pans,348/409 PS brackets, 409 deep groove pulleys and many other 58 to 64 parts.

I even had them call me on my online order to confirm my credit card number recently, and I have done business with them for 20 + years. They sell to other companies like Ecklers and other dealers.

    In response to LSS1333 called them to give the info.

They didn't call you asking for your info.

You're safe...
