In its defense, that is probably the most intact Fiat 131 in North America at this point.

You Californians....That is not rusty at all by Pennsylvania standards. Not much left though. Too bad, they were sweet cars for a little while when nearly newcheeky

Had a nice day this morning so went out to a new junkyard (to me) in Pontiac. Found an NX2000, an Infiniti (J30?) With HICAS, and a Conquest (most of the good bits already gone, but I pulled the "Turbo" seatbelts).

I went for Miata uprights and spent 1hr+ trying to get them, but Michigan rust kept me from being successful. Oh whale.

Yo Stampie! If you wander across a NA Miata that has the seat foam in the headrests for the original speakers I will compensate you handsomely. I didn't plan on doing this, but one thing led to another. The foam in my headrests have been hacked apart to accommodate one 6 inch speaker. Ugh.


Actually, belay that. I woke up in the night and had a better idea. So, don't bother with the headrest foam!

Just let me know if you change your mind. There's also a couple of small time miatia parter outers in FL. 

Today after grabbing a bumper for my 99 Silverado I went back in the yard for a walk. 

Found tb a nice vacuum canister. Something about German over engineering was below him. 

This turbo had moved about 50 yards since I last saw it. It's seized but maybe someone had wishful dreams with the Chevy straight six?

At this point I came up on an E450 Ambulance. After noticing some nice power cables I went inside to discovery someone had used it full dusterdb13 style. I decided to stop taking pictures.

Thank you for that. We can all rest better not having those images in our heads...

Inadvertently stumbled across a neat ghostyard in rural east Alabama the other day.

I travel for work and usually take secondary and backroads because daily driver is R53 MINI and expressways ain't much fun, had to pull over and take a few pix when I saw a couple of old Volvos languishing on the side of the road --- guy across the street lived in a trailer and was out in his yard so I approached him and asked if I could eyeball around, he had worked at the junkyard for 19 years and told me it was bought out 4 years ago and the new owners sadly crushed alot of cars so not much remains there.

It's actually on a fairly major road, 278, but I would have likely just passed right on by if I had been going that way, I was on a parallel road and had to badly take a whiz so I pulled off trying to find a good spot, then saw the oldies which I thought was pretty unusual for rural Alabama to have such a large concentration of foreign cars.

It was cool.

Neat stuff!


I visited my local yard for the first time since the fall.

Found a Q45. Wish I had a use for it. Last one I grabbed the gatling gun HIDs and flipped them, but they took a while to sell and I didn't make much.


There was also a TR7 that a few guys were working on for a while. That makes me happy, hopefully that means they're keeping another one going.



And also an Audi 100 2door.


The engine is shoved way out in front, just like the modern ones. Radiator has to be beside it. It had an automatic transmission


I got an LSD from a Sentra Spec V for myself today

I just realized that I would like a hardtop TR7 a lot more if it didn't have those stupid black side panels.

Hit the Ford/Mopar car lot today. Didn't get too much time to look around as a buddy was helping me get some parts for my Challenge Neon and we ran out of time when they closed.


I got a windshield


And all the bits to delete A/C


Spotted this on the walk out and checked it out.



Merkur Scorpio with a V6 and automatic. I'm assuming this is one of those Cologne V6s I think they're called?
