I was just at the local Pick-n-Pull yard today and... - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Kyle, I gotta agree with the other guys. Let them believe what they want...some people just don't want to learn. Profit from your experience and tell me where these guys are...if anywhere round here I'll be there with the truck saying "Fill'er up....us morons need these crappy motors cause they keep blowin" then we got FREEEEEEEEEEE motors

The gist that I got from them is that they don't even bring them in. I guess they have to purchase every car that comes into the lot and they don't even make an attempt at purchasing a car with the L67 in them. If I had my way, I wouldn't go back there. I would much rather drive 2 hours to get to the one over in Auburn, NY than drive 20 minutes to go to this one.

OMG 2 hours?

Randy and I are probably going to start a spree of hitting the local places. Some are U-pull some are pulled and inventoried. I am going to talk to him about the U-pulls. Ohhhhh ps Randy..I know a local yard owner really really well. Maybe we talk to him about your donor?

Should know about donor car by the end of the day.

Maybe we should start a sticky that tells where member'* favorite junkyards are. Addresses, phone numbers, ect. It could help if your local one runs dry.
