Ok, so here's the deal. Some JNCers in the comments of this blog post had the kooky idea to get together for a junkyard crawl. There shall be camaraderie, hanging out, and the not-so-surgical removal of parts from old cars.

Seems like the first weekend of the month might be a good time, how's 10AM Sunday 7/5? It'll be Independence Day so understandably many might be out of town. If it's not a good time for you, speak up!

Edit: JNC sticker for any JNCers who show ;)

Meeting spot is at the Milliken Ave. Pick-A-Part in Ontario, but if that's a bust there's an import-only Ecology Auto nearby.

Bring your self, some tools, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Gloves might be a good idea as well.

Come on, don't you want to save parts from cars like these?

SoCal is blessed with old cars so there has been some toying with the idea of taking requests. This could devolve into something ugly really quickly, so people who are going, please also chime in on whether you'd be willing to take requests and what ground rules you'd need.

Here's a few to start with:

1. If you request a part and it is bought by a JNCer, and then you don't follow through with payment (including shipping), you will be forever banned from requesting anything in future Junkyard Crawls and your name will be posted for public shame and ridicule.

2. Tell us the various years/models that are compatible with the part you need. Be as specific as possible, maybe post a picture with the part you need circled.

Can't make it this month, (Fourth of July), have to go back to my hometown for this:

But I'd be up for next month, the Amtrak leaves here (Flagstaff) late on Fri. and arrives (L.A) early Sat. and if I could find a place to crash that nite I could take it back Sun. afternoon and be back in time for work Mon. morning. If the little lady is O.K. with it, that is...........

OMG! Day from hell! :|
First off, I'm sorry for not making it out... I was on my way and thinking I'm soo good with directions, and with such keen sense of direction i find my self lost some where off of mills and the 10? wtf? :shock:
Ok so now I'm lost and I've realized this. ok no biggy let get back on track and save the day..... :)
BANG! I turn the corner right on to the 10 on ramp and blow a u-joint under load "smack smack bang crash... than nothing" WTF :shock:
So i pull to the side of the on-ramp.. jump out and I see my drive shaft rolling back down the on ramp into on coming traffic.. :oops:
Damn... I'm screwed...
So I spend the next hour and 30mins waiting for my 7 month pregnant wife to
show up with a replacement part..
It really did hurt much till she pulled up laughing... then asked the million dollar question...!
" Honey did you forget to set you pinion angle?" :roll: :oops:
