Default Another JY trip?

We all know I nearly live there..

Pat will be in attendance..kinda as usual. There'* a new one in the mix though. Rubix is expected to be there and I think he'* a junkyard newbie

It'* always fun to see the newbies wander around being careful not to scratch or hurt the half mangled cars.

What was your first reaction to the JY when you went?

How the heck do you get to the foglights when the Bonneville is resting in the mud. No wheels on the cars in my 1st JY.

For the JY we went to at NEBF. Yippers is is cold for May! and I hope I do not get run over by the forklift.

I never had any compunctions about tearing into JY cars to get what I needed, but I always have fun finding the really odd broken cars.
Holes in trans cases, blown blocks, really stupid jury-rigged fixes, evidence of horrible maintainence, heck we found a Caravan with brake rotors that had been ground all the way down into the ventilating vanes...

Seriously, I always wonder if any lives were lost in the wrecks.
