Default Boneyard find

Got a heck of a deal at the local junkyard. My buddy and I picked up a taillight for his '88 monte and I got a headlight, sidemarker, and fog light all for $50. I was just happily suprised to actually find 3 96+ bonnevilles.

That'* the one I go to. It'* called Gibsons. The one I pulled my stuff off of was complete. I couldn't see anything wrong with it. Another one has front end damage and the entire engine compartment is melted. The third has front end damage as well. And yeah, there is a ton of 95- bonnies.

THATS right, GIBSONS. Well shoot, last time I was there, they had like 10. I've gotta run down there soon and grab a few things myself. Whereabouts is this nice untouched car you speak of? First row on the left with the rest? Because I found a couple nice ones way out in the back in the middle of some fords

Nice find! I still don't find many '96-99s here in the yards. Most are pre-'96 and they often send them to the crusher pretty quickly. Must not be that much used market down here for them, I guess.

You guys are soooooo friggin lucky. There are maybe 4 or 5 salvage yards in Memphis and not a single Bonneville among any of them. In fact, alot of Bonnies get stolen around here for parts. the gangsta'* seem to love our cars for drive-by'* and smash and grabs. oh and the Mexicans turn em into lowriders

There might be a couple of passenger side ones. All of the driver side are either gone or smashed.

wj-yeah, it'* first row on the left. I think it was about halfway down. There'* even a 2000+ model there now too. Engine bay is completely torched. The tails were in good shape though. Have fun hunting!
