Default Need Advice (Junkyard)

A local junkyard is doing a thing next week where it is:

$50 dollars for everything you can carry out.

I assume it means one person, no cheating (wheelbarrows etc.)

But it got me thinking I could turn a profit on it and also help people out here. What would be some good parts to look for that have a high resale value (both bonneville and non), and what are some rare parts I should be on the lookout for for Bonnevilles that I could hang onto for members. I know tailights 89-91 and 92-95 SSE/i tails would be great, i just don't know what they have. So basically if you were in my situation, what would you look for? If all else fails I am going to find a way to bring out some interior seating to use as couches/chairs at my buddys house this summer.

I need some tails as do others. I will pay premium for the inners if in good condition. probably 50 bucks if they are nice.


SUN VISORS!! those are hard to come by in good condition

SSEi grill, I need one of those and will pay you good.

stuff like 140amp alternators that work if they are still on the engine, series II coil packs from new L67 cars.

oh yeah did I say SSEi specific parts?

if they ahve any 2000+ bonnies pick up everything you can that is small or whatever, they are rare in u-pull-it yards it seems.

also just grab a trunk carpet and wrap all the parts up in that or something!

93-94 L27 or 93-95 L67 exhaust manifolds.

Yup. I'm doing another set.

if that were me I would be grabbing: exhaust manifolds, PCM'*, and coils from 96-99 L67'*

Call and ask what they define as carring. Do bags count, things with wheels, do they count?

thats a bit heavy isint it?

as for parts, i don't have alot of money, but i would pay like something REALLY cheap for a set od 93-95 coils...but if you make a good profit and decide to be charitable i will pay like $10 for 3 packs...i dunno..

where do you live anyways to get this kinda deal?

as for expensive parts, well, things like...MAF sensors are like EXTREMELY expensive...if they let you use something with wheels maybe you can grap wheels? or like tails like you said...corner lamps?, cd players, ohh a cruise control servo & module, maybe some grilles for assorted years/models those are always good..., i dunno something like that
