i think i suffer from icantthrowpartsawayitis

I started cleaning the garage this morning, and I found so many parts I didn't even know I had. I found parts from the 64, parts from the 68 engine that used to be in the 64, parts from the 90, parts from the 93, parts for carburated motors, emissions stuff for efi motors. I found a stock carb intake, carb spacers, carb throttle linkages, carb throttle cables, pedal assemblies, throttle brackets, valve covers, old radios, old speakers, extra tires/rims, springs from a v8 fox body, seat brackets for a 94, TONS of exhaust parts, old headers, old mufflers, boxes of gaskets - head gaskets, header gaskets, intake gaskets, carb gaskets. Not to mention enough nuts and bolts to put together an entire engine. My favorite find of the day was mud flaps from the 93

Hopefully my dad will by a trailer soon so I can talk all this crap up to a junkyard in south carolina that pays cash for scrap metal.

WTF? Was it made of gold or what? For some cars you can get a new radiator for $100. I think when I had my Supra the radiator cost $100.

Sounds like my house. I have so much stuff from so many cars. Roadrunner pieces (that car was sweet!), 440 (going in a pinto...I smell 11's), 402, 350, pistons, cams, rods, too much to list. Maybe we should take everybody's junk and put together the most awesome car ever. Who knows, maybe we could build a time machine! Anybody here have a Dalorean (sp?)

i just recently acquired a case of myfundzerlow.

i dont have many parts laying around, other than the stock t25, injectors, and intake/stock ic piping+bov(needed to pass smog visual). everything else is usually traded between freinds cause their stuff breaks, temporary parts, etc.
