One of the nice things about my house in California was its proximity to the Oakland Pick-N-Pull. If I needed an ‘85 Civic starter at 4:50 PM, I knew I could be at the yard before its 5:00 closing time. Now I’ve just discovered a well-stocked self-service yard within a few miles of my new home in Denver.
This Amazon is pretty well beat up, although I’m sure that won’t stop lovers of vintage Volvos from tearing up when they see the lack of Midwestern-style rust-through. The high-altitude sun does a good job of scorching paint off the upper bodies of old cars around here, but the low humidity means the Rust Monster must work slowly.
Check out the C.W. McCall-grade Royce 23-channel CB! I thought about buying it, but I’ve already got a Johnson phone-handset CB for my van.
