Welcome to Ames Performance
Why Choose Ames Performance
Welcome to Ames Performance Engineering

We want to thank you for visiting our site
Ames Performance Engineering sells only Pontiac parts and is in its fortieth year of supplying enthusiasts worldwide. During this time we have established a reputation among our customers for prompt service and the finest quality available. This attention to quality is especially evident in our reproduction items, many more of which are now being made in our own shop. As in the past we will critique our products in order to inform our customers of the quality of each reproduction.
Both phone and mailorders will be processed and shipped within 24 hours, except during shows or in backorder situations. Our large in-house inventory allowed us to ship 98% of all orders within that deadline.
Therefore, if an order is called in to us by 10 a.m. Monday, it should be in your hands by Tuesday if you live in eastern New York and New England (except Northern Maine). You'll have it Wednesday in New Jersey, Eastern New York and parts of Delaware and Maryland. On Thursday your order should be delivered to most of North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Western New York. All other continental sections of the country should receive their orders by Friday or the following Monday. (The above service is dependent on typical UPS shipping schedules.)
All parts are sold with a satisfaction guaranteed policy. Please examine your order immediately. All shortages, incorrect items, and damages should be reported as soon as possible. To return an item to us, please contact us for instructions. If Ames is responsible for the incorrect shipment we will reimburse the customer for his return shipping charges. Under no circumstances will Ames pay for additional charges incurred by using packaging services, air shipping or accept COD shipments. For your protection, send the package by UPS or insured Parcel Post, saving the receipt until you hear from us. If the package was damaged in shipment, save the merchandise and packaging. Notify the carrier immediately for instructions.
We will maintain the prices on this site as long as possible. However, we reserve the right to make price changes whenever necessary. Prices charged shall be those prevailing at time of shipment. Items may be discontinued at any time.
Parts may be ordered by calling our toll free ORDER LINE 800-421-AMES (2637). Please tell us which catalog you are using, your customer number from your catalog mailing label, the part numbers, and a brief description of the items desired. Parts may also be ordered by mailing or faxing the order blank located toward the rear of this catalog.
Methods of payment: We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and moneyorders.  (Personal and company checks are also accepted.  However, we reserve the right to hold large personal checks for proper clearance.)  We also offer COD shipping. COD charges are $9.00 additional per box. Note: We cannot ship COD orders by air. When using credit cards be sure to give complete card number, expiration date, and card holders name with billing address on each order. Minimum order is $10.

*PRICES:Always fair
*CATALOGS:Always free
*QUALITY:Twenty-nine years of the finest! Disregard those "Us vs them" ads since we have always tested and chosen the best products.
*BACK ORDERS:Lowest rate in the industry.
*INVENTORY:Nation's largest - we couldn't supply a 98.6% order fill rate without it.
*SHIPPING:Over the years, Ames Performance has tried to keep shipping rates as fair as possible. With severe rate increases by all common carriers throughout the country, we have been forced to raise these charges. In the past we would raise the base shipping to $10 for orders less than $50 but in fairness , we cannot continue with this and make it cost prohibitive to place a small order. Therefore, we have developed a fair graduated scale. Additional oversize shipping charges may be added as noted in the catalog.
