Mother of all Junkyards meet- PA RESCHEDULED- July 6??
Posted 01 June 2003 - 11:16 PM
Hey guys, I thought I'd put out the word on this.
On the 14th Tin Soldier and I are going to the mother of all junkyards to pull a trans. I thought since so many of you like junkyards and good deals, I'd pass the invitation along to anyone who would like to come. We've already pestered Skip about going, no word yet.
Any and all Soob lovers in the area, come on out! I've gone to the yards with my Nissan buddies before, and we've always had a GREAT time.
We'd probably be meeting up at around 8 or 8:30 in the morning. I guess we could meet somewhere in Perryopolis, PA, which is close to I-70 and about 5 miles from the yard.
This yard is pretty rough territory, be like a Boy Scout and come prepared! Bring boots, lots of drinking water, hand cleaner and rags, backpacks for carrying tools/parts, etc. This place is very rural and has NO RUNNING WATER, and is completely mud or dirt depending on the weather. Some areas are also heavily covered with wees and grass. Definitely wear jeans and boots. DO NOT BRING A HEAVY TOOLBOX- walking around this yard is equivalent to a hike of several miles. I'd suggest using a backpack.
Now some info about the yard.... it's well over 300 acres, has cars of all makes and models, and about 35-50 Soobs, mostly EA82's. There are 2 70's wagons with pretty nasty bodies, a few EA81 wagons and a couple hatchbacks, also a hardtop with an incomplete EA81T. There are also several XT's. This place has tons and tons and tons of EA82 parts- however turbo parts are in short supply, there's 2 or 3 *incomplete* EA82T's in the place. NO RX's. Several first gen Legacies as well, and a few Justys too.
Price list (bottom couple inches are missing):
Here's a map to give you an idea of where Perryopolis is:

Not sure if you walk the Ford section at this yard at all, but what about 2.3 Turbo Fords, as found in T-Bird Turbo Coupes and Mustang SVO's (considerably more rare)?
If you look under the hood of my XR4, you'll find parts from Volvo, Saab, Subaru, and Nissan turbo motors., so lots of "foreign" cars can be donors.

If everyone is up for it we could make a 2-day weekend out of it, and hit one of the big yards each day.
Posted 22 June 2003 - 02:30 PM
A couple guys have told me they might be able to make it. I haven't gotten any definite answers. If nobody can make it that weekend, we'll shoot for another day.
So, who is in or out?

Matt... they only have one car that HAD an SR20DE, a 93 SE-R. It's been stripped bare. Really the only thing left besides body parts is the master cylinder and rear brakes, which I plan to take for my B13.
They only have one S13, a '90 fastback. It's also been stripped to the bone.

I'd love to see some of you guys there, but if not then maybe some other time.
Posted 01 July 2003 - 10:48 PM
Looks like that'll be the day........
If anyone needs to grab any engines/trannies/other undercarriage parts out of a car, PLEASE let me know in advance!
Posted 02 July 2003 - 09:48 PM
Where are we meeting, and when?? With my 3hr drive, I probably can't get there before 11:00, so maybe I should just meet you guys at the yard? I'll also look into getting an earlier start.

We'll meet at the CrossRoads station right off I-70. It's a big blue and yellow gas station with X's all over it, it's bright and gaudy, very hard to miss. It's on the interchange of I-70 and Rt. 51, Exit 46. I actually forgot which side of the highway it's on, I think it's the SOUTH exit, but I'm not 100% sure. Hopefully the Gas/Food/Lodging signs will point it out. If not, and you go the wrong way, just turn around and head in there, Rt. 51 usually isn't too busy.
Noah- I can give you directions how to get to the yard itself- it's very remote and can be a confusing drive to get there. But if you follow my directions to the letter, you can find it. I guess I'll just email them to you.

-PANTS (NOT shorts)
-Rags and hand cleaner
-Sheet/blanket to lay on when crawling under cars
-A bag (backpack is best) to carry tools and parts in
This place is basically a desert, so prepare accordingly. They have no running water, so bring your own. To get to the Soob's we'll have to walk at least half a mile, so I'd suggest not carrying anything heavy in your hands. Jacks are NOT ALLOWED, so if you want to jack up a car, you'll either have to find an emergency jack, or if he's working, get the forklift driver to pick it up for you.
<strong>If anybody plans to get anything from underneath a car PLEASE let me know in advance so I can have the car raised up before we get there!!</strong>

But,here's a list:
Blue door panels but only very nice please,I think you know the deal by now.
Rear plastic trim from around the rear hatch.Lift the inner edge out and slid the piece rearward for best results.
Blue floormats if really nice.If you don't want to carry all this forget the floor mats,the rest is light.
Have fun.Got yout tick repelent?
