Working at a car dealership gives me the luck to have use of a dealers license.
Co-Part, a huge salvage car auction pool all over the US sells off most of the cars that get written off as a total loss to insurance companys.

Well i always scan the Fleetwood Broughams. Some are super minor bumps (but age and low book values total them)

Some are dead scary

Some are low mileage cars that I cry seeing, some are super high mileage.

All these cars get auctioned off, most get bought by junkyards.

This updates all the time. This is only a few of them. I remember a 92, Stolen and stripped of the 5.7 and tranny, nose, euro trim, dash, and rear bumper assembly... I laughed, and thought, i wonder what all those parts went to.

Damn, why'd I have to look in here before going to sleep. Some people are just wasteful.

I was okay until we I got to the '78 *sniff*

It doesn't take much to salvage these cars since parts are so scarce.... scary...

A couple of those new FWBs can probably combine to make one nice whole one.....I see potential, at least for solid parts. People are wasteful, but one man's "junk" is just a bonus for us....I see this when I go yard shopping.....but then I look at it as their loss my gain or anyone who appreciates these cars!!!!

And for what little was wrong with the '78, it could be easily repaired.

What was up with that 70's Eldorado vert? Other than the top being jacked, it looked really nice.

Wow, some of these are smashed up pretty bad. Makes me feel real good that even though the front/backs are trashed the passenger compartments are fully intact. I feel bad for the ones that got rear ended because it was 99% not their fault.

Exactly right! The drivers of the rear ended ones more than likely were stopped at a stop light and some idiots not paying attention plowed into them.Good thing most luxury Caddies,at least most pre-2000 models,have a long rear end to absorb most of the impact.

Its being auctioned off, with a salvage title, you have to have a dealers license to buy them though.
