CoupeDTS Posted May 3, 2011 Report Share Posted May 3, 2011 scrap yards/junk yards are heartless with cars. Last week i hit the jackpot and found 2 untouched 94-96 fleetwood broughams in the junkyard. This is a rare car and even more rare to find in a junkyard. The LT1's have many valuable parts. I took all the valuable rocker panels and interior pieces that i could. I know what brings good money. They charged me $20 for a load of "trim" as they called it. They charged the same amount for a taillight and equal amount for a garage door opener LOL. My estimation I can make $600 on the "trim" that I took already have made $350 of it since last week. Thats not including the great parts I got for my own vehicle plus friends cars I went back 2 days later to grab more parts and they had just taken one of the fleets to be crushed. I begged them I needed parts off of it and they could make another $50 or more and they said nope not worth it, we need to crush 50 cars today and dont have time to bring it back for another one. This is a big place with 1000+ cars and high turnover. Seriously go grab a dime a dozen cavalier or something I watched as they threw a pickup on top of it If I hadnt gone that first day then all those valuable parts I took off that one wouldve been crushed. Are there really no workers there that can see a valuable car for what it is? * 1966 Deville Convertible * 2007 Escalade ESV Black on Black * 1996 Fleetwood Brougham Black on Black V4P -Gone* 1983 Coupe Deville Street/Show Lowrider -Gone* 1970 Calais 4dr Hardtop GONE* 2000 Deville DTS - Silver with Black Leather and SE grille GONE* 1999 Seville STS - Pearl Red GONE Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
