Default First Pick N Pull

I have never went to one before but I drove 600 miles over the weekend to go to one. well not just to go to the pick n pull but that was on the way so why not.


There were at least 30 bonnevilles, all SE'*...one ssei 1992 ish. I'm pissed, no parts at all grabbed, there were tons of parts for SE'* though. There was a trans in the 92 as well, that might come in handy as a core later on.

Ah, Standard Auto Wreckers. I'm going on Friday with a friend of mine. It really is scary there how they have the cars double-stacked, feel like they could fall over at any given minute :o I'd love to have a junkyard here laid out like the one Hans was at.

I don't like their selection, the cars are always picked clean by the time you get to them
I *did* find a mint 88-91 SSE tail once though, and that'* the only good tail I got. :(
