    That is just plain strange from a business stand point. Unless he really does get people dumb enough to pay that much for a parts car. But I doubt he gets very many to pay it. There was one yard near me that had alot of classic cars in it. He wanted to clear out most of the oldies and just deal with newer late model parts. He passed the word onto some of the bigger car clubs that any classic could be "adopted" for $200 and stripped bare by the person choosing that car. He had some takers but not many. Everything older then 1993 was sent to the crusher. :cry:
