Overpriced Junk Yards Yuck
Posted 16 February 2004 - 11:36 PM
And earlier before I ask about the prices he tells me "Oh the older subaru's with a spay painted X are going to the crusher soon so get what I need..... Ya think the goof would of said " Gee I can at least make somethin on this car before I crush it and take like 35 bucks or somethin for it.. Not price gouge me with a outrageous price like that... Needless to say I turned and walked away... I hope he chokes on it LOL
And here I was thinking I found a new place that was reasonable for us to buy from.... NOT
Guess Im use to prices liek 25 a door....
Boy I feel better now that I vented.. LOL

Could be ESPECIALLY reasonable if the paint code matches your car and it has no dings. Odds of that, about zero.
Sorry to be a terd about your rant.

$75 is not bad for something MINT that you can't find on the east coast anymore.At least a door with all its parts,in and out.I'd have offered $30-40 and if need be,meet him around $60
But you're right,most yards are a huge rip off around here.

i mean if you were sellin stuff for a living you'd set your prices hihg, to get those people that don't care. but would take less if offered less..

Anything Electrical (switches, etc): $25 to start
PS Pump: $25
Headlights: $15 (removeable bulb type)
Tail lights: $20-30
Marker Lights: $10
Turn signals: $10-20
Rear Diff: $150
you can haggle with prices a bit, especially if you are getting multiple items or you are a regular
And this is the only official pull your self yard, and about the only one that gets older stuff. the other yards won't touch the older stuff.

he was driving this huge loader, with beer in hand, tore the gas tank out of a car and started to crush it, gas spewed everywhere! the drunk rump roast forgot to drain the tank.

I guess if I had a brat and really needed that door I would have spent that amount... They also had two caps for a brat one low and one med Ht.. They also had a junker turbo Brat but I didnt look at the engine....

and seperateted in Ford, Chevy, Imports, Ect ect

If you look stupid and ask stupid questions, that's what you get. I did. These days, I make them an offer first.
