Re: Frackin Junkyards!
We wnt thru that for years in CA. now most of the yards are trying to compete with the chain yards.
These places (pick your part, pic n-pull...) organize the vehicles in rows, on stands, with enough space
in front to pull engines if desired and charge a buck or 2 to get in. Prices are fixed and posted. They
cycle the cars thru a row at a time as they get in new stock. The even group them, for Fords, GM, Dodge,
Japanise and European and some do the makes for those as well. THey have tool rental, cart rental,
engine hoists available... and it works these places are crwoded every weekend and have body shop crews
during the week.
And yes you sign you life away at the gate so they, for practical purposes, do not have liability.
The hack yards are fading fast. The only other yards surviving are the specialty yards for things like
Ford pony car's, Beemer/european luxury csars and the like.
