They are all junkyards in northern cali. I dont have a digital camera small enough to sneak into the yards in my pocket, otherwise id get pics of some of it.

I wish we had that many w123's around here, my wagon needs new seats. I went today and the only interesting car I found was a Peugeot 505 wagon.

Yea, but with cell phone cameras its kinda pointless now, becasue they cant really stop someone from taking a phone into the yard.
