Hmmm ok so my daily driver cage met an unfortunate end... long story short, I've got a body with an engine that doesn't run and it's not worth replacing.

Does anyone have any recommendations of a wrecker or auto parts recycler that buys whole cars or something like that? I could scour the phone book... but first hand experience is like gold.

Any leads would be much appreciated :rockon

they usually will take the moff your hands, but I doubt they'll pay..

On separate note, I'm guessing you're carless?
to throw a shameless plug here, my neighbour has a very-very good condition aolder, cheap car for sale if interested, send me a PM I'll give you particulars :)

I'll be throwing it on non-sportbike b/s in the next couple days.

My parents recycled their car at a place down by the Patullo bridge. They were given the choice of bus passes or a discount off of a bike (pedal).

I'll check with them and see what the company name is.

Call Ralphs on Michell Island. There is also a steel recycler there that gives $50 for your car, but I can't remember the name.

Thanks for the replies guys!

On another note... while browsing through Auto recyclers again on myTelus, I found something called the "Kidney Car Program". I called em up to see what it was and it turns out they will come and pick up the car for free and give you a $60 tax receipt.

I think this is possibly my (and anyone else who's in my situation) best bet. I think I'm gonna end up owing in taxes this coming tax year anyway :laughing

Oh and I'm not complete carless... I have another car but it's turbo'd, drinks 94 octane and the suspension's stiff enough to knock fillings out. I'd prefer not to drive this thing daily in my hour commute :surrender

I doubt an 89 Ford anal Probe would be worth $300... but I'll check out the Buy and Sell.. thanks!

no, the Fucking Old Rebuilt Dodge probe is probably not worth $300, but if they dump it on a flat deck from your driveway and give you $50 for the battery and the tank of gas, it's one less problem you have :D

actually, there are lots of ads for ford stuff. what condition is the engine in, besides non running?

Bring your car to a high school at lunch time, bring 2 crow bars and a baseball bat and charge the kids to take a swing at it.

It runs... just not well. Bottom end problems either crankshaft bearing or broken valve. Other than that, it has a a newer radiator and some other stuff... would be a shame to toss it all.
