I am helping a guy with a 1980 Trans Am with a Pontiac 400. He wanted those cool Pontiac chrome valve covers that were offered from '67 to '72. I usually get them at swap meets but they seem to have dried up lately. Fleabay prices are through the roof for rusty originals. Cheap repops are not correct looking and quality is terrible. So I saw that there are some very good looking reproduction ones out there at somewhat decent prices though I have no idea who is making them. I elected to try a set from New York Restomod since they are right here on Long Island in Farmingdale. They had the best price w/free shipping. That way if they were junk I could easily return them. You could also pick them up, or see them first, at the store itself. Well, was I surprised to get them withing two days Priority Mail. Upon opening them up I thought they were actual factory valve covers. They are that good. Heavy gauge steel, triple chrome plating, correct openings for the breather and oil fill cap, and they even have the dripper rails welded inside to oil the rocker arms (Very important! Many do not!). I looked back at the Fleabay page and the price has gone up $5 since I bought these but they are still much cheaper than most other venders at $95. I can't load the pics and If you search New York Restomod their site is down but here is the Fleabay page. http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-5...0001&campid=5335822911&icep_item=232174676612

They look nice and at 150 sold already the price might go up more so maybe grab an extra set.

I have a goodly stash of nice originals. I was not willing to part with any. That is why I told him I would find some but there are a lot of cheapolas going for less than $40 and they look it. These were so nice I figured anyone looking for some should check them out.
