no wrenches...

so friday i go to the junk yard, i was looking for a small electrical part so i didnt bring any wrenches.

i found a couple stangs next to each other..
90 gt it had headers, off road xpipe, flow master mufflers....

96 v6 it had off road xpipe, polished bolra cat back and matching tips... really wanted the borla cat back. and it had a b&m ratchet shifter, which i really needed for my racing aod.

i woulda loved to get the borla mufflers and the shifter. not to mention, the junk yard doesnt descriminate. they told me the shifter woulda been 18 bucks (200 dollars retail), and the exhaust woulda been next to nothing as long as there are'nt any cats attached.

i went back the next morning and all the parts were gone. i know better next time..lol.

Re: no wrenches...

Yeah, I'd be pretty pissed too. Would have been worth running to a parts store or Wal Mart to grab a cheap set of tools.
