    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...

    I don't know about a "ton" of good parts, since I didn't really find what I was after, but I'm sure there are some good items left.

    Possibly 2 good hood lip trims? Rear bumper brackets, front bumper brackets, V8 frame mounts, V8 frame cross member?, double hump trans cross member?, front bumper, head light rings, front valance?, window trim, filler panel, small bumper valance/grille support brace... I see plenty of possibly good stuff.

    I love pics like that,, hate the fact that the cars are dead, but something bout a junkyard just makes me feel at home.

    Inline six, twisted/crushed valances, missing double hump crossmember, I got the bumper, someone else on the site is getting the headlight bezels, rear mounts are twisted, most of the trim is bent or ruined... The one in the stack I'm staying away from, but you're right, I'm sure someone could wrestle parts off of the brown one from the ants.
    Just thought junkyard pics were interesting...

    And ya, combing junkyards is a blast, even if you do find dead Mavs!
