    The Duster took quite a hit to the rear! It's interesting how much of the dash is gone. The front fenders look good too, and maybe the doors. I think the roof is bent up, but it's hard to tell. Looks like it had the blue plaid seats in it. Of course the grill was probably gone before it even got through the gates of the junkyard.

    I've saved worse. If I didn't have so much going on that Sat would be worth a restore

    do you ever inquire if you can buy these cars whole and how much they are asking for them? I see lots of parts that are sought after by folks on FABO.

    No, I haven't. I think they are probably worth more in parts and scrap metal to the yards though than selling them outright.

    you would be surprised, in the last year I have bought a 68 dart gt, 69 4 dr valiant and a 68 2 door valiant all from the same junk yard for $1300 USD. I have already broke even selling parts on FABO. I have plenty left to sell.

    Great service to people. I commend your for it. You earn every penny that it brings you, I know from experience how much work it is!!!

    If I found any cars in a yard here in SE Tx older than 2000 I would faint!

    if you look for them, they are out there and its alot of work, but honestly I am having some of the most fun I have ever had with clothes on.

    when I saw the video, I'm thinking about all the parts I could sell and "how do I get my hands on them"

    the 2 barrel aluminum intake setups for /6 are hot commodities as well as b body spindles and UCA's.
    power steering setups get popular as you get older and are tired of manual steering.
