Recommendation for enclosure/adapter for PATA Hard Drive

I bought many years ago a 320GB Western Digital PATA hard drive for an old laptop that died before I had the chance to make the HD switch. I stumbled on this unused hard drive again and was wondering if there is an enclosure or something I can buy to use it as an external hard drive. So far everything I found online has been only for SATA drives. This is the drive in case anyone was wondering.
