    Default Some quick junkyard pics - El Paso Pick-A-Part

    Here are some small cell phone shots from an impromptu excursion to the Mega U-pull-it in El Paso. Not pictured are '87 and '88 turbo coupes, one with a complete rearend and the other pretty stripped. Also there were a couple of four banger aeros and V6 SN95s, nothing special otherwise. I'll be making a pilgrimage back down that way in the near future for some of the bird parts. Enjoy!










    1979 Base Model Coupe- 351w, C4, 3.73s, the fun machine- Now getting a lot more well deserved mileage put on her!
    2007 Forest River Sunseeker 2200 Class C motorhome on an E-450 chassis. Oh yeah!
    2013 Subaru Crosstrek XV Premium- Marine Blue w/ 5-speed, awesome little car.

    wow poor cars, they all looked straight and were probably in good condition when they were taken there ... I always wonder why cars like that end up in a yard ... when they might have been able to be fixed?

    Cause people are to lazy to fix anything and if they tried to sell it they still want big money .

    Some cars are cars that get towed, people go and give their title to avoid paying the charges. So the car ends up getting sold to the junk yard.

    Were the 4 eye cars part of the Cash for clunkers? I haven't seen any local foxes that were part of that yet.

    You never see that many good fox parts in yards around here.

    That wasn't one of the TC's. I'm pretty sure those were Hella's and not Marchals. I had my eyes open for the Marchals, I know how much you guys like 'em. The vert was about the most stripped out of all of them, but none were actually wrecked.

    Nice! Do we know the condition of the vert's doors and is the right one still on it?
    The 'vert still had both doors, no interior panels but as I recall they were pretty straight and both still had good glass.

    Nope. These looked like they've been there a good while. Now that you mention it, I didn't see anything that was a cash for clunkers car.

    I think the Capri was the only V8 car, the 'vert was too gone for me to tell and I can't read door codes. I tried not too stay long as it was pushing 95 degrees and I didn't have a hat or any water. It was a lot of walking too, the section was everything Ford so I was walking up and down almost every row to find the real treasures. If you look behind the cars in the first two pics you can see the 2.3l aero coupes too.

    I thought someone would chime in about that. There were only a couple of those in the yard but I don't remember any one being wrecked. I love those old trucks and hate to see them getting scrapped. If you're looking for small parts I can see what I can grab next time out.

    Someone clarify for me how it goes around here....

    Is the point of this thread (and other similar ones) for the OP to offer to get parts for FEP members?

    Not necessarily. I think for the most part we FEP members are just picture hounds and love to see four eyes shined, driven, wrecked or junked.

    I guess it depends on the OP. When I post junkyard pics, most of the time it's just for the enjoyment of sharing the story and experience. I don't think I'd be offended though if someone would ask me to grab a few parts for them.

    Point being, I don't think there is anything written in stone about junkyard posts.

    I will check on them but I'm pretty sure one was busted. I scanned their price list before I left and they seemed very fair so if they're serviceable I'll grab 'em.

    The Capri, you know you could sell the entire front clip off of it. I hate to see it that way, if I were closer I'd pick it up.

    Man there's another Capri around here too. I'll have to get some more pics up this weekend. I hate to see 'em that way too but living on the Air Force Base here really limits what I can keep around. My house is only around 1200 square feet, much smaller than what we're used to being in so storage space is at a premium.
