some pics from a recent trip to Bud's Auto Parts in Greenville, MI. Found a door for my old wagon there and a few trim bits as well. The brown '74 wagon provided the door.

Should I cry for all of the lost cars or jump for joy that there's still a salvage yard with a lot of good parts for cars from the 70's?

I'm willing to bet you will find a manual trans set up, a tach cluster, a posi rear end, & other desirable parts somewhere in those stacks.

I AM JUMPING FOR JOY THAT THEY DID NOT TAKE PROFIT OF CRUSHING CARS BACK WHEN SCRAP WAS SO HIGH OVER SAVING THESE CARS

I may visit again this year and if I do I'll take some more pictures to share. There maybe have been 6-8 rows of Chevelles/Malibus from the 2nd to 4th generation. I only had about 1.5 hours to spend there so I didn't look around a lot. Next time I'll give myself more time to scrounge.

That's a great idea...all those cars are languishing and need to be used for a better purpose.

That place isn't too far from me, maybe 100 miles. I'm a bit east of Saginaw. Looks like they have a grill etc that I could use, and also some '75 headlight housings. I would like the use the single head light set-up, as opposed to the duals.

How are the prices? Some of those old yards think their cars are gold plated.

My door was $200. Sure, it was probably more than it's "worth" but those things have proven hard to find. Plus, I didn't have to pay shipping from Arizona. For $50 more I bought two aluminum sill plates, a front license plate holder and two black plastic vent covers.

Head Bang Sorry Limey. I keep thinking Chevelle header panel. I could honestly see that one being $200-$250 if it includes all of the hardware, grill, bezels, etc.

If I get a chance, I may cruise over there and hassle them a bit, but I'll have to call over there and see what he wants for the parts I could use. It does depend on how much work it takes to fix the stuff I already have.

there's only 1 yard that I know of that has G3s intown, some days he's very good on prices and other days he's not. Not to sure about $200 on a door, paid $100 for mine, they took it off for me, and came complete with everything except the hinges IDK maybe they gave me a deal since they had the car stacked kind of dangerous where the car was teeter-tottering with any little breeze.

I wish they're cars were as complete as these
