Default Wrecker listing and member helpin members

I like the idea Merlin had put up as sticky on "wanted" as for parts wanted.. but I thought maybe we can expand a lil more on it..

My suggestion is next time any member is in the wrecker... please note which year model Bonnies ( and any other H body and the likes ) in their wrecker.. so that way when we need parts for certain model and year that the wrecker don't have in our area, we can quickly reference it through a sticky and pm the appropriate people for help with parts..

so wat would also happen is Merlin or whomever hee hee.. I"m nominating him..
would simply start a list

i.e. 96-99.. login name/location/ year-model trim

and when there'* other members wanting to add more to the list.. post there.. Merlin or whomever will add it to the list ( the first post ) and delete the one left.. what this will do is keep that topic clean lookin and yet not cluttered with 12 pages of crap.. whomever needs parts.. can pm that member whose wrecker nearby has their trim year bonnie for parts help..

The only probem I foresee with this list is that often times the cars get crushed very soon.

I visited 6 junkyards in 1 day. Talking to the guys I found out that they crushed a lot of 87-91 Bonnevilles and even pre 96ers. On my travels I only found 1 SSE, and 3 LEs. And only 2 Bonnevilles 92+. I did find out however they between all the yards I visited they must have crushed 12+ Bonnevilles in the last month.

The long short of it.... they aren't keeping them for very long... so a list would probably be outdated very fast. :(

We have a decent boneyard here that has bonnies in it. My son, 94SSegold, is out there all the time. Now he has his eyes on a set of leather seats.
