    Wicked! Looks mean. What price are they demanding?

    Yards such as these don't sell whole cars. Once it goes in, and the VIN is "deactivated" and sent to the state department of motor vehicles, it's goose is cooked. Parts sales only, then crushed for scrap. I've tried to buy several vehicles over the years, from this very same yard, and the answer has always been "no". These were vehicles in the intake area, not in the actual yard, btw. They just got in a mid seventies Corvette. Standard fare 350/350 stuff, but heck its a Corvette for heavens sake!

    I wouldn't mind a couple hours of picking at that engine bay.

    There's probably lots of little bits worth grabbing.
