It is amazing. How many perfectly good cars will rot in a junkyard all because of a dead engine, or because the previous owner didn't have room for it. In the 'new' part of our junkyard, there are a lot of runners laying around. Some just need a little fluids, battery, and clearing of the **** in front of them. This is honestly, no bullshit. So far, two of my friends [I am sure there are more] went to the junkyard with a battery, and a trunk of fluids. He [one of the guys] talked with the owner asking him what cars have the best chance of driving out of here, and he pointed out three cars, and he didn't want a stick, so that ruled out one, and he liked the 6000 [just an LE]. Put in some Oil, topped off the ATF, threw a battery in there and drove it home. He drove that car for one year on a blown head gasket, until it'* final demise. $100 and a battery did it for him.
That was a true story.. and although the car was a total POS, it got from place to place, and it still held up to his 300watts of bass constantly pounding.
