Junkyards and Junkyard Dogs!

Always check the after-market stores before calling a junkyard to determine the price.

I enjoy a good junkyard!

I mean, most people who really like cars can find almost anything in a junkyard. I have seen very old cars, hot rods and antique cars and parts as well as cool engines that were ready to be rebuilt, come back to life and power a new hot rod again for another 10 or 20 years.

(Where else ya gonna go to find a real live junkyard dog? I am talkin’ bout the real deal here. A dog that will let you walk right past him during the day when business is conducted, but will tear you apart after hours! No foolin’ around.)

I have gotten lots and lots of junk car parts that work fine and are half price at junkyards. I found parts that are available nowhere else.

If a particular junkyard does not happen to have the part you are looking for that day, they can make a search through a computer network especially for junkyards and locate that part in seconds.

Many junkyards will specialize in the make of car it deals with. Most junk yards will have more of one kind of car parts than others, too like Chevy, Ford, Mustang or Corvette parts. The same with BMW, Mercedes or Jaguar they are all specialty parts that would be kept in certain areas, or they might be a specialty of a particular junkyard. Antique parts are hard to find and show up mostly at automobile auctions or auto trading shows like at Carlisle Pennsylvania.

Online junkyards are popular too. Just do a search for “junkyards” and up pops a whole list of them just waiting to take your order and ship that part right back to you – for a price! But that price is going to be a lot cheaper than a parts house, usually! Always check the after-market stores before calling a junkyard to determine the price and availability of your part before trying junkyards.

Remember, electrical parts are non-refundable from junkyards.

Happy hunting!
