I found 4 FIFTEEN inch steel rims. Now THOSE are hard to find.

Everything is either 14's from all the smaller cars or 16's for the Ford Cabs.

I also found the cover around the cruise control lever in my interior color. He gave it to me for free!

A hobo. His name was Jonathan. But I gave him some money and named him brink:lol:


I found an 89' Turbo Supra. Running condition. Only like 100,000miles on the odometer. But it's too heavy for me to want to schell out the cash right now.

My old car! After I blew my engine in my Corolla I sold it to a junkyard. It's still there today... It's been almost 3 1/2 years. I'm surprised they haven't compacted it yet.

oh, and another one of my old cars... a '95 Altima GXE. I sold it to a junk yard earlier this year. It had 121k miles on it with immaculate interior. The exterior was completely crushed in on the front from a wreck I had. I never felt even a jar from the impact.

I found Momo steering wheel once. I couldn't get the big nut off of the hub, so I got one of the guys working there to get it for me. Too bad it was for an old BMW 1600 or something. So now I got a completely useless (to me) hub.

Now I would think even a retarded junkyard owner would search every new car for valuable aftermarket stuff like that. eBay can be their friend.

The ones by Shea stadium. Theres this one Junkyard owned by these Columbian and Ecuadorian guys and has EVERYTHING and they are very negotiable.
