Hey kids,

 

 

Need a couple small replacement parts for the Charger that I dont want to pay dealer price for and have been difficult to find online. Anyone know of an easy way to track down LX vehicles at wrecking yards? I cant imagine there would be a lot of them, but all I need is 1!!!

 

 

Thanks a ton!

What will the insurance company do for me?

 

 

Insurance companies deal with wrecked cars. If they dont have them in their own junkyard they have a list of where the cars go to. (I think thats what BIGRED's Idea was, but I could be completly wrong.)

 

 

Possibly try http://www.junkyarddog.com/used-auto-parts.htm

Or http://www.motors.ebay.com/

You might also find something there.

bingo! who do you think has to sign off on them to send them to the junk yard? 90% of the stuff in a junkyard is sent there by insurance companies, and I'm sure it's got to be much higher on newer vehicles like a 300/charger/magnum.

 

it's where I found my 78 bronco. called up AAA and asked them to give me a listing of any of them that had been totaled in roll overs. they found one really quick. a few months later that same truck was reinsured thru them.

 

 

I've been known to do it in a pinch for parts. especially when looking for things like axles. which are hard to find new, very expensive (when you hit the 1 ton and heavier range), but easy to fix up and restore when pulled from a junkyard.
