I have been burned by about every vintage cadillac parts dealer out there.  The only people who havent messed something up or overcharge the hell out of me is rock auto.

1956 coupe de ville

The Tassie Devil(le)

Rock Auto has been good to me for stuff in USA.

All American Auto Parts in Ballarat, Victoria for parts in Australia.   Especially the heavy parts.

For many newer parts USA Parts has done well for me.  "Cadillacs Only" and Cadillac King seems good for used trim parts.  For used mechanical parts no longer reproduced Cadillac King has been great (differentials), and yes Rockauto has been good.  Those are my main go to suppliers.

Even Rockauto has slip ups - look at a front engine mount for a 1972 Eldorado - looks like the front engine mount for a RWD and now way it is correct.

I will not buy from OPG, if it comes to that will switch to Lincolns.

A great Cadillac part supplier i have delt with is ALLCADS, in Las Vegas.

I like all of the above, as well as Dennis Akerman, Joe Cutler ('48-'49 specialist), Terrill Machine, Egge Machine, Fusick, Kanter's, Olcar Bearings, Northwest Transmissions, McVey's and others.  For fuel and water pumps, both rebuilding and sales, Arthur Gould in NY is very good.  For carburetors, Larry Isgro, also in NY.  I've also had good dealings with CLC members who had vendors spots at Grand Nationals or who advertised in the Self Starter and the for sale section of this forum.  Ebay is also a great place to find parts.  On the other hand, nothing can surpass Hershey, which this year is Oct. 5-8.
