auto parts distributers/dealers??

what is the automobile versions of parts unlimited & tucker rocky, etc...

im sure there are a billion distributors, but im looking for the biggest ones that will have most of the stuff you could need.

my girlfriends car was about to fall apart, so we bought her a car in better running condition. its a 1990 toyota celica st. not the most amazing car, but at least its the standard, not auto.

right now she is using it for work, but when she can afford a better car, im going to get this one, and use it for kicks, a toy, a beater, whatever. it actually has a trailer hitch so maybe ill use it for trackdays someday.

in the meantime it could use a some very minor things. like a new boot and for the gearshift, maybe a new steering wheel, seat covers, definatly needs some non-sh*tty looking rims, the spoiler is missing...

you get the idea. i know i can find some of that stuff at pep boys, vato zone, etc...but being a parts guy, i kind of want to dig through some big catalouges...

anyone got any tips, or a hookup?

im mostly just looking for aftermarket like minor accesories, i dont think anything is really mechanicly wrong with it.

someday i might put a body kit on it (lol), some audio, maybe some stage 1sh performance upgrades, nice wheels, and tint, and call it done. till then it looks like this:
