BUYERS DIARY

One of the most valuable functions of this group is the sharing of knowledge about our beloved vehicles. It occurred to me that much good and useful intelligence is passing us by and going to waste. That information is the day to day collective purchasing experience of the group's members. Simply recording and noting it here can be most helpful to all: learning parts #'s, substitutions, suppliers and sources;.early alerts to changing trends in pricing and supply; pricing/finding of junkyard parts; possible group buy opportunities; etc.

I suggest that this thread simply contain the buying reports and not be cluttered with discussion, which should take place on other threads with separate subjects. Or people can private message between themselves for specific clarifications. Below is a sample layout. Using it will simplify accumulating the entries for a cumulative record. I invite PMs with suggestions.

My first thought was: "Bean Counter's Paradise". But then again you may be on to something. As long as everyone kept it short and sweet.
It could be very helpful for the guys who shop at places that advertise "we beat any advertised price". Also, it may help us parts-starved guys in the upper midwest find a supplier to call in other areas of the country using the data from a thread like this.
