Wrecker Visit

Having the day off, which I hate, I decided to pay a visit to my favourite wreckers. I'm really starting to like this cash for clunkers program. I've never had such selection of parts for my truck before. A large portion of them don't even require much clean up work. I even managed to score a shift lever for my ZF trans! At least, I hope it will fit or is workable. The body panel selection is getting much better. I may actually get a decent start on the body this summer.

No Superduty's there, but they do have an F-600 and I think it's an F-800. It's Van Ryan Auto Wreckers on Alway Rd. I believe it's Grimsby with a Winona phone number 905-643-2557. There are a quite a few auto repair shops, mostly body shops though, that get parts from here. You can either pick it yourself, or they pick it for you. Mind you, cash is their only venue. I just found it to be an interesting walk through the yard that day. There was no less than 20 pre-97 Ford pickups, not including vans. The unfortunate part was, I forgot to look at cruise control harnesses. Oh well, next time.
