I foolishly had to look inside the one in the pile for good parts. Fortunately I didn't end up in a car sandwhich. I guess when it was brought in it was a complete car, but it's been picked over pretty good. The brown one also is sitting on top of a large fire ant nest, which made it ineresting pulling the bumper off of it. I think I may have set some sort of speed record for bumper pulling...
