They don't stack cars around here, but there is this place over in Athens that crushes like crazy. That'* where my truck is going tomorrow. We've drove by there at night before and the crusher was going. :o

I know, thats why I'm taking it up there. I got all the good parts off of it, and my dad'* borrowing a trailer this evening. Tomorrow morning, she goes. What is it now, like $6 a 100? I figured I'll get a good $200.

i love going to junk yards that look like the cars will fall on you!!!! i know the one that i go to where they stack them 4 high is fun cuz most people wont even go in the yard and the workers wont pull parts for cheap.... so if you go do you can get screamin deals... like $15 for a head for the escort!
