really nice EA81 wagon.... in a junkyard?

Recommended Posts

Looking for an EA82 radiator yesterday and I see an early 80s GL just sitting there without any cars piled on top of it. I go to look while the yard guy is pulling my new radiator and the car is way too nice to be junked! approx. 224K miles, dual range 4 speed, manual windows, very nice tan paint (considering it's 20 years old), only a few dents, not missing and body panels. I tried to start it but the key wouldn't move? Engine looked fine, everything else looked fine to me. I have no idea why such a vehicle would be in a yard. Located at Speedway auto wrecking with the pink/purple Dodge van out front on Vilas road in Central Point, OR. Somebody save it! I also found out where the late 70s 4WD woody wagon ended up... about 100M away at Action Auto U-Pull-It. (hasn't been cut up yet)

I can't believe it...... I jsut went back there to see if I could get it...... they crushed it. To "make room" for 1981 Ford LTDs with no usable parts.

:confused: So they crushed a car that could have been resurrected to a daily driver, in favor of a american boat of a car that was probably worn out roughly 15 years ago.....:banghead:

OK, hear is what we do:

Matt, Bob, Adam, and any one in the valley reading this, we all need to go to Speedway Wrecking one @ a time and ask about the Subaru wagon we need parts off of. This will teach them that they can make ALOT more off of a vintage Subaru than any old POS Ford ;)

Do they have an email address or 800#? I'm always looking for new yards to get parts from.:rolleyes:
