I went through this six years ago , we found one but it rusted out after six years ? and these are " unobtainum ". A Napa guy found me one from GM Obsolete parts - OEM , he claims it was the last one in the country ........ $ 325 but we found one. The alternative was custom made S.S. installed for $ 450 but a long drive to Lou's custom exhaust , at least I'll have an OEM part. I just want an inspection sticker. The police are pretty quite these days with pulling over cars, they fear the Covid too.

 It seems that parts for the 90's vehicles are getting scarcer to find.

As we get older our old car parts get more scarce , most of the G vans have been crushed. Pickup trucks you can get parts for , they specialize in that - supply and demand they will build aftermarket parts , muscle cars too.

 I had a hell of a time finding WSW tires for the '94 Fleetwood. I had to get them out of the US.

Same deal with my 235 / 75R / 15 tires , not much call for that size. 225 / 75R / 15 was the factory tire , too skinny. I had 255 / 75R / 15 on there once , all season tires in NJ but too wide - not good in the snow. I run snow tires all year , fine by me. All the new trucks have giant 18-20" rims and those tires are expensive.
