Original Parts Group’s website at OPGI.com is a restoration guy’s dream with all of the available parts, pieces, and hard to find stuff that can help make any number of jobs on a restoration project go faster and finish with higher quality but there’s other stuff to see there as well. OPGI.com has a great blog on it that is regularly updated by the company and it is not just a stream of content about their new parts or what they are having for lunch that day. Nope, there is some great content on the site on everything from classic car insurance repairs to the muscle car market in Europe to amazing customer cars, and even some of the “inside baseball” that’s happening within the company.
The thing that always gets us most interested in the business of what OPGI does is determining how they decide where to invest next. There are models that they always seem to be just ahead of the curve on, introducing parts and components just as they are getting hotter in the resto world. Because things take time to go from idea to finished product, the company has to try and predict the future in many ways, right? The Cadillac you see in the lead image above was in the Original Parts Group SEMA display this year and it is a jaw dropper. Chad and I had an elaborate plan to steal it but then we woke up and didn’t try it.

When we first did the El Camino in the ’80s, OPGI (Chevelle Classics) was one guy in Huntington Beach with a little newsprint catalog…Amazing, what they have grown into. Still usually buy there when the occasion arises.
OPGI was darn convenient when I lived in SoCal. 45 minutes down the freeway. But, that darn showroom…I always left with more than planned.
