Default Junkyard run

Did a junkyard run last weekend, didn't find much of what I was actually looking for, but I did find some neat stuff.....and some stuff that shouldn't have been there.



66 or so Newport, 440 powered.

79 Trans Am, 66 or 67 Eldorado, 67 Wildcat. What you can see of the Eldorado is about all of it that is left. Looks like it spent a lot of time underwater or half-buried in a mulch pile, most of the body was just RUSTED AWAY.

Datsun 260 Z. Dunno who thought a 280 motor would be a good idea.


Modern stuff:

Odd motor, diesel I-6 in an 84 Nissan Maxima WAGON. Just weird, but looks like it was running until it got hit.

Brian and I are still TICKED about this. 4 Porsche 914s, with another one out of pic. All in good shape, minor rust issues aside. Looks like the whole group came to the lot at the same time. And it'* a crusher lot, no chance of buying the cars out of it. Argh....

BTW, the yellow 914 was minus motor, but from what was left, I could tell it was a 914-6!
Someone needs to get SKINNED.

I once sold the engine from one (high output quad four) for $1200 to some guy wanting to put it into a GP. Those W41 engines can bring big money. They are pretty much the highest HP engines that can be swapped in with minimal headache. Wouldn't mind having that badge either

Anyone ever drive a W41 equipped car? They are kick ***, no VVT, and have a excellent powerband. They also put shame to any stock Honda VTEC 4 popper, except for the one in the S2000 of course.

The Quad4 in general is a popular Fiero swap.
