AFTER MARKET VENDORS:

What they have: Excellent and realistic wheels/tires for musclecars and stocks, dioramma making stuff, "accessories" like scale burgers and doughnuts, hard to find resin goodies. Decals.
Decals for historic and current drag cars and race cars (Gassers, dragsters, stockcars, etc) Some model kits, Black Gold brand paints, Competition resin Bodies and accessories. tools.
DIECAST AND DECALS:
Custom waterslide decals made to customer's needs
THE PARTS BOX:
Australian but I have gotten stuff from them shipped in the US. Hot rod parts, bodies for European cars, stuff you can't find anywhere else.
MODEL CAR GARAGE:
Good source for photoetch. Other places sell MCG too. Discounts available if you're on their mailing list.
