My day at the Junk Yard

Today I woke up early went to the Junk yard and had a good time!

So I picked up a 94/95 Accord rear lip for a GRAND TOTAL of $26.34 :whoo:

I looked at 1 Accord and the bumper was there but the lip was gone!
I looked at a 2nd Accord and it was gone! :damnit:
Went to a 3rd one and it was there!

Shortly after I walked around got some stuff for and some what not.

Then for the the part that made me angry and sad at the same time was: I kept walking around and..... BAM! there one was a 1995 BB4 sitting there, spotted the lights in the distance.

got up to it and WOOT it was a BB1 (H22 Vtec just in case you didn't know ) however it was STRIPPED!!!! there was nothing in the side! LITERALLY nothing, that means some bastard just picked up a H22 with the tranny, waterpump, starter, alternator, ECU, Radiator, and everything else for about $400. :damnit1:
makes me mad to think that I missed it, and made me sad to see the BB1 beat up and stripped the way it was!

Re: My day at the Junk Yard

Paid $15 for mine and it was in about the same shape. My favorite find was the center speaker. Plastic cover, bracket, amp, and old speaker for $30

Re: My day at the Junk Yard

I love the junk yard!

I was gona pick up for $15 because the lady rang it up as a body molding, because it was in 3 pieces so I guess molding are $5 ea, but the guy next to her said "No, thats from the bumper, its the lip" , the punk knew!!! then she wrung it up as that and it was $26 but what ever it still beats paying for one brand new!

Re: My day at the Junk Yard

I've never paid for anything at the junkyard here.

You just kind of walk in, grab stuff, and leave, and they're like "Whatever.".

Nothing big, anyway.
Don't tell anyone, but I've taken radiators from the junkyard here and sold them back to the same junkyard for like $30 a piece.

Good money if you need a quick buck, haha.
