    Default 2017 Junkyard finds

    I haven't been to many junkyards in the last few years mainly because of the lack of cars that I care about. In the four years I lived in Nebraska there was only a handful of cars that came through the pick a part junkyard. Not like in Las Vegas where there was usually 10+ fox cars to pick from. Hopefully Ohio is better than Nebraska.

    Anyway, I found this today. 88 Cougar.

    My 88 with the grey interior, also has a red drivers seat belt, funny. Those grey door handle pull screw covers would be outstanding for me.....

    It is amazing to me that there are so few fox Birds and Cats running around in NE Ohio. When I was looking for a car, the only thing I found in NE Ohio was the odd rust bucket here and there. I'm getting a bit old to do any junkyard diving anymore, but parts seem scarce. On the other hand, I also own a Maverick and parts are waaay easier to come by. My car came out of Oregon and was rust free, so luckily, I didn't need a lot.
