    Re: Junkyard finds thread

    Well, up early again today to work on my parts car again.
    Finally got the rear window bottom and trunk lid removed and bought!
    Was working with only an old B & D VersaPak jigsaw so it was slow going!

    Here is the old girl who gave it up for my Sally to live on....RIP....


    This is the bounty she yielded. Only northern guys will understand why this is an upgrade!





    My compliments to the roomy XC 60 service loaner....




    Don't forget the trunk lid to replace my dented one. (Looked like someone forcefully shut mine on oversized load.) Mine actually has about as much rust or more than this one does....





    All in all, three days, about 5 hours total time, and $105.50 spent.
    Also met the guy who is responsible for them keeping all the old Cadillacs in the yard. A fellow Cadillac owner. I gave him the web site address and told him to check us out! Life is good.

    Dave, nice haul. cant wait to see you work on the talisman some more.

    too bad you arent here though. theres a rust free 74 trunk lid on a black coupe here

    as for me,
    went junkyarding
    saw this in the lot

    saw this obliterated silverado

    and this.....same color scheme as my old 91 cutlass cruiser SL....this one was optioned a little better though- had the rally pack gauges with the tach and leather (?) seats...although it only had the 3.1 instead of the 3.3. Unfortunately, they don't sell cars, else this one would have come home with me.

    I think that's the car from Serial Mom lol. If not John Hughes best work, perhaps his most hilarious and morbid. I think Beverly Sutphtin was driving a Celeberty wagon, but I swear it was the same color with the woodgrain sides in which she mowed down her son's math teacher for suggesting that her son was messed up in the head and needed therapy because of his obession with horror and slasher flicks.

    It's always annoying to find the part I need is there, but was destroyed unnecessarily by people removing nearby parts.
    Many people would have smashed that rear window in just for the fun of it.

    Re: Junkyard finds thread

    That's just how I roll....



    ....besides, I may be the next guy to need one!



    I know what you mean though, I guess if you love cars, and love the hobby, there isn't even a thought to do it any other way.
    It wasn't a decision I made, it was just the way to do it?


    There would be no fun in smashing it. It hurt me deeply to have to cut into such a good example (for around here) for my part.
