I don't know how they're doing it here.
It seems that they get vehicles in, then decide if they'll resell them or send them to the yard.
I bought a 2002 Subaru Forester from our Pick-N-Pull about a month ago.
Put a new rear wheel bearing and hub assembly, a new radiator, some new front brakes (Brembo cross-drilled rotors. lol), and some Sparco rally wheels on it, and she's nearly ready for the road.
...Probably a good thing as I have too much crap sitting around at the moment and need to thin things down a lot.
Tell me about it...
I think we're up to 13.
Only 2 don't move under their own power though, so there's that.
