    Junkyard road trip

    Well this past weekend I took OkieRA29 up on his invitaiton up to come up and go junkyard hunting with him. Here is a little documentation of the trip.

    Here is the Winstar Casino





    The Arbuckle mountains.



    Taken outside OkieRA29's shop.



    Finally we get to the salvage yard. Here are some various ZX's.



    One of a handful of MX73's.



    I saw more 620's there than I had seen in years.





    Some Celicas and a couple of Supras.





    If you can figure out what this is let us know, none of us could.



    Early Corona coupe.





    A TE71 Corolla liftback. It still had it drivetrain and all.



    A decent first gen Supra.



    There was alot more there. There was a whole section that had some Hondas, Nissans and a couple of Mazdas and Mitsubishis but we ran out of time to take more pics.

    Holy crap, I can't believe some of the cars you just straight-up throw away out there. We'd kill for stuff like that in the Northeast. Heartbreaking. Cool pictures though!

    Early German NSU Prinz. From the same company that made the fabulous rotary (er..Wankel) engined NSU Ro80.

    It did still have it's rear engine. It was an itty bitty thing. The hood for it was laying inside. The only problem was that the floor was pretty much all rotted away.

    If you can make a roadtrip, they do sell whole cars quite often.

    Some might have titles, some may not. It would all depend on how the yard came to own them. Most likely, you would have to get a salvage title for them. Not hard in Oklahoma to do. I don't know about how it would be in other states

    Did this one have a tan interior?

    I'm looking for a few pieces unique to the 79 (which this is)
