Some Junkyard Finds #664531 06/24/2014 10:24 PM

Found this 1982 Chevy G30 Horizon in Pull-A-Part yesterday. Definitely towered over everything else in the yard with that huge roof. Even the wheels were still on the ground, like it wanted to keep on going. Should've explored the inside of it more.

They are sunroofs. I probably installed over 200 of them back in the '70's. I put one in my brand new '75 Econoline. My girlfriend asked if I could put one in her Toyota. Done. My roommate wanted one in his Cutlass. My younger brother helped me do all three. He got the idea that this was easy weekend money. He made flyers and put them on windshields at the mall. Local van shop made me a killer deal for buying multiple sunroofs. Brother and I were doing 6-8 installs every Saturday all summer and spring ( until snow started in NY ) at $100 profit each vehicle. Paid off my loan on the '75 ( $5,300) along with Cragars and other mods.

Back when I was a GC in Washington, I worked on Jack Blades' house, the lead singer of Night Ranger.

My scores for the day, cost me $20 bill, and a whole lot of sweat. Weather app said 79* yesterday, and 75* today, but in reality it was about 87* both days. UGH! Grabbed the plastic for the A pillars and under the visors.

Both visor mounting plastics were busted pretty bad, and a lot of the plastic for the rear was busted up. I did remove the plastic that goes between the passenger front door and the barn doors, but forgot and left it sitting in the van. The van I snatched these out of was a house painters van, and the majority of the interior was absolutely trashed with paint cans, tools, etc.

Someone busted the center out of the dash which was otherwise perfect, such a shame. Grabbed the one good driver side check strap for the rear doors, other was missing. Two inside door handles, and one inside window crank handle. Also grabbed some brown windlace since mine is currently blue, but I'm switching to brown based interior.

Grabbed two map lights out of a conversion van, started to grab the other two, but I woke up a few hornets and decided that was all I was pulling out of that one for today. Also scored a "Night Ranger: Greatest Hits" cassette in minty condition. Never heard them before, so it was worth a shot I suppose. I'll be going back to grab the plastic I forgot and a few more little odds and ends soon.

I couldn't tell you much about CA, but here in VA I just go to the front desk or call and ask if I'm allowed to browse or pull my own parts. If I spot a new yard while driving around and don't have time to stop, I'll make a mental note and go back to check.

How do I find junkyards that will allow me to pull parts? All I find when I search online are the big name places and they have none of the vans I am looking for. Do yall just go around to the smaller places? I grew up in the south where they are plentiful but out here in Socal I'm not having much luck. Maybe I am searching for the wrong thing?

I think in SoCal there are LKQ junkyards? You can sign up for alerts on your phone. But in SoCal unless you’re there within an hour of receiving the alert, the van will be stripped pretty fast.

Nice score. Those Dodges have a lot of good parts on them. Drives me crazy because here all the yards want to crush everything immediately especially if it is over 20 years old.

So I have been driving by here on my way to the gym. The van hasn't moved but it definitely looks like the side windows are all busted and that's why it is sitting. I spoke to the guy who owns the carwash next door and he said the owner of the building is trying to sell the building but uses the lot for storage right now. I think I saw him there last night and again this afternoon but I was unable to stop both time. I currently have a lead on two short vans. This one and an honest to god short panel van that was a milk delivery van in the 70's. I need some land laugh
