The ad said "we specialize in late model domestics and imports"
went there looking for some parts for my camry
apparently their definition of late model domestics and imports is 6 acres of late 80s/early 90s tauruses(tauri?) and Thunderchickens.. with a little space about 3000 square feet for a couple of saabs and one completely stripped legacy
I'm gonna get a rear disk set for the Brat.
You have a brat?.. and you didn't tell me?
email me your number, I lost it.. again

Depending on when the wife and I go to the State Fair, I may be able to join in the hunt. I'll know more the closer I get to the weekend. I sent a PM earlier to you with a "probably not this weekend" reply BUT that may change. Have you ever been to I-35 Foreign in Alvarado? It is south of FW on I-35. They used to have quite a few 80's Subs. Also a place called Apache Foreign on Mansfield Highway in Kennedale (I think) had a fair number as well.

I have to admit, there isn't much I need from the yard, I was in need of a dist, egr solenoid and a heater ballast resistor pack, but I unpacked some of my stuff in the garage this weekend and found all three of those things.. Lucky me!
But there's always the possiblility of finding a good deal on a D/R or something equally cool
Shall we determine a meeting time/place?
Imagine.. all 5 north texas subaru owners all in one place. What a spectacle that would be

honestly i haven't a clue but its cute to consider at least.

As for a possible meeting place - what part of the area would we attack first? Probably want to meet near the heaviest concentration of yards (if there is such a thing). Being the "newbie", I only know about Apache in Mansfield, I-35 foreign south of FW on I-35 in Alvarado and the Pick and Pull on Loop 12/Spur 408 in Cockrell Hill near the intersection with Jefferson.
Hmmm.........we live in Denton, Euless, Dallas, Ft. Worth and ?? for Okami. How about meeting at the Cracker Barrel on I-20 and Bowen in Arlington? From there, Apache would be close and then down I-35W South to I-35 Foreign?
Gee I hope I get to go!

I might be able to meet you guys. I should give somebody my cell # and then if you are already in the yards, I could catch up with you. (It all depends how late I have to work).
I know there used to be a yard called BIG STATE on Jefferson. They are closed now, but all the cars are still in there! They had a ton of old Subi stuff 70s and 80s.
Awesome salvage usually has some 80s, Daryls may have some 80s. Pick and Pull....well one never knows! Als pick and pull (2nd ave/Dallas) usually has 80s.

i hope to post it here or PM you with it tomorrow before we go...
not sure where the piece of paper is at the moment other wise i'd PM you right now.

I got in trouble though. I went to my favorite yard and they had just got a 78 2WD wagon in. Original TX vehicle, NICE condition and they still have the title. The engine threw a rod, but no biggie, I have 3 extra engines. It's automatic!! I have wanted an automatic 70s for some time! The trans seems good! 130 K.
I bought it!! More work!
Anybody know ANYTHING about a 70s automatic????
Posted 27 September 2003 - 06:10 PM
then i will think if its possible to somehow get it ...
perhaps pay you to pull it and stick it on a pallet?
