junkyards

bonanza?

There's a new pull-a-part across the river near boomtown
if anyone needs anything from it. We went in search of
bumpers and assorted stuff. I felt compelled to take
pictures of badging while there. A few cars, too.

Junkyards are both hot as hell and very strange, and the
last time I was in one I was trying to get a computer for
my civic si after some combination of hurricane waters,
sitting for a week, and being stuck under a tree for a
week had removed the car's ability to start regularly.

This was considerably tamer, and with fewer crazy people.

I'm taking it a pull-a-part is a junk yard?

That's a new one for me.

It's a kind of junkyard, also called a Pick-a-part. Those are the self-service kind: rows and rows of cars that they let you in there with a toolbox and you pay on the way out.

The other kind of junkyard is a lot less work but slightly more expensive; the yards keep a complete parts inventory and you can get parts on demand if they stock them.

Either way, it's all covered in grease.
