Junk Yard Pickers & Salvage Finds
 
Let's band together and NEVER let something like this happen again!

This poor car is now either a cube, a raw ingot, or a soda can now. I grabbed what I could, but before I could get back for the brakes and sway bars; the mad hatters at the salvage yard turned it into a collection of paperweights.

I've noticed while talking to my brother about his Dodge forums and school friends about their Olds threads that those folks have a common area to find and request parts from the intrepid members of their respective forum groups that spend a good bit of time in the junk yards looking for an opportunity... I also noticed we don't have such an outlet.

I'd willingly pull a part I know a fellow fanatic needed, ESPECIALLY if I knew I'd be in there for another item for myself! Let's spread the love and drop a dime to our fellow members if we find something rare and/or sweet; but primarily as a way for WTB people to put a formal request out to the Focus Community abroad![loveff]

Here's an example:

I have a growing collection of random stuff that I found in good shape and bought, with the unfounded, but well-intentioned belief that someone may need this stuff one day!

Dude, is that your kitchen?

don't have any pick and pulls around here,just junk yards where you tell the counter person what you want and they go get it,really sucks!![?|]

You better buy her something nice when you get rid of some of that.

This is a great idea. Someone should make this a stickie.

Am I drunk or do I see some SVT side skirts in there? I'm probably drunk. And I can't really tell lol.
