Well, being 1/2 price weekend I had to go :) Got the day off and got to the yard about 2:30pm. When I was parking, some guy that was leaving the junkyard, yelled toward me. I thought he was bitching cause i took his spot or something, but he asked if I wanted a free wheelbarrel. Of course i said yes, paid my $2 and walked in.

I walked past the holding bay, and I didnt see any new cars, meaning all the sube's must have already been put out in the yard. And boy was I right. Found a few new EA81's like a '83 GL Coupe, Auto. 2Dr w/power windows (gotta get that fer my brat) and a complete set of 4 spoke alloys. A '82 GL Brat, light blue with blue interior. Was able to swipe the '82 style steering wheel for my brat, and I was shocked to find a blue one. The Brat had the 3rd eye and a long style A Bar, but it was smacked pretty good in the front end. Everything up front was destroyed. I couldnt even salvage the brackets that attatch to the front of the bar. Tailgate was straight, dirty but not rusted. I left it there tho (should have grabbed it, sorry Shawn).

Also, the very last Subaru on the end of the row (waited all day to go down there) was a '92 Legacy Sedan. I didnt pay much attention to it, until I got close enough to see the spoiler on the trunk. As soon as I saw that, i had to go see if it had the scoop, and sure enough it had it all. Complete Legacy Turbo Sedan, Auto (sorry Corky). The reason i didnt pay much attention to it was because it had been rolled, and you couldnt reconize it was unless you shut the hood, which had been oppened as far as it could and wedged into the windshield.
The car was complete tho, but rolled at least twice. There wasnt a usable part on it. Whoever wrecked it, looked like they had some fun. But it was definatly a sad sight to see.

I needed some hoses and stuff for the '89 Touring Wagon in my garage, so I looked in all the EA82T's at the yard, and every one of them were missing the radiator hoses, but there was a EA82 that had new hoses on it, so I called Austin from my cell phone to ask if EA82 hoses were the same. And luckily Austin was at the PaP up there in Washington :) Got my hoses, and had a good laugh with Austin.

So being 1/2 price day i grabbed what i needed. '82 Steering wheel, (2) EA81 alternators, the high rise center console out of the '83 Coupe, various hoses and some plugs. Then I went toward the truck section to look for more brats, and on the way i passed by a Peugeot 505 STi Turbo Sedan with a complete set of 15" Alloys (checked, and they arent 390's), and 2 cars down was a 405 or a 504 (cant remember how they have it) sedan that was riced out. It had a complete set of 14" steels on it. Had to leave them behind.

All in all, it was a fun day at the Junk Yard :)

No room in the garage, and not enough money in the bank. The engine was useless, and the tranny was just an auto.

definately a good day for the both of us, and randomizer too- (Troy)

we went there to grab a wiring harness for an 83-85 ea81/ ea71 engine harness- for Troys engine in his wagon...

but after we got that, we decided to go see what was new in the yard-
we grabbed some gas struts for the liftgate on the wagon (cause Troys will get you in the back of the head if your not careful...)
then i looked over to the next row, and I was like- "dude! look, a puegot!!"
"and it has the steels on it!"

so Troy was like "well, seince you have alloy 15s on your wagon already, I want those!"

so I let him go for them... but then i ventured around to the back of the pug wagon to look for the spare, and i glanced into the back of the wagon, and there was another 3 pug 14" steels!!! and then spare to match!!!! i was really excited then!

so now Troy and I have matching set of 4, 14" steel (oval slot) pugs!
(yes, we brought home 8 pug 14" in the 80 wagon)
now its time for me to get some meats! and a lift! :headbang:
