Default A Day At The Junkyard, My Dream.

O.K. here is my dream. That at the local U Pull Our Parts I find a reacked modded GTP with an intercooler. They charge $32 for an intercooler. Will this ever happen? Probably not. Remember, its just a dream.
However, I saw a lot of interesting vehicles there. 6 Bonnevilles in all. 4 where 88-91. One fully loaded SSE- 90 ish? Only 2 of the Bonnevilles were 92-95. Both stripped; one a 92' and the other a 95' with an obvious failed upper. One of the 88-91 had 315,00 miles on it and still had a good valvetrain. Not a single supercharged car there to speak of. Lots of sh*^ty looking Chryslers from the 80s with turbocharged and intercooled engines.

Chances are if you ever find a wrecked GTP in a yard that was modded at the time of the wreck, by the time it got to the yard, it wouldn't have any mods worth buying on it. I know of a local GTP owner who had a decent amount of mods and crashed his car basically head on into a guardrail at ~60mph. The engine was shoved back so far it pushed the firewall back. By the time the junkyard got the car it didn't have an interior in it, no exhaust on it, no PCM in it, no pulley on the SC, should I keep going?

Nice dream though, I had the same one a few days ago, except it involved the car only needing minor body work, and me being able to get the whole car for $32.
