    Can I borrow your portable Sawzall?
    I didn't have access to r3v this weekend, my saw in the yard with my friend getting a V8!
    Im trying to build a rear sump subframe/oil pan combo for my M54 so any M5x would do. I'm going to have to keep looking

      A few months ago I found a E36 M3 on LKQ, someone in this thread checked it out the same day it went up and it still had the motor amazingly.

          Really? Was it the one in anaheim? or stanton? Those things get pulled almost immediately even by the laborers that go to the yard everyday that work for other customers.

            Kinda neat how the last E30 to go in there was Euro 323i, I got its clock.
            I pulled the rear shelf off that car, it had the visor. I left the clock there, it wasn't a euro clock but the basic digital one right? From what i've been told, the person in charge of renewing the lease, COMPLETELY FORGOT..so after the grace period passed, they were outbid by their neighbor and the yard will be becoming a storage area for cargo containers. I was also told that they will be opening potentially two smaller yards likely in the LA area and Artesia.

              Well, I successfully grabbed 18 cylinders. The V12 cost $167 and the straight 6 cost $177... because I kept the clutch on it
              The V12 is going to sit in storage next to the first identical V12 I got a few months ago, and the M52 is going to be inspected/disassembled and parted. I'm going to compare its condition with the other aluminum M52 I have, and I'll keep the better of the two—and sell the rest.
              I didn't get the side mirror from the E30 there because the car was severely torn apart :(

              ScottSneed , this is from that Z3 you pulled the rack and diff from, I met you that day. I began freeing up the motor that day, but then said nah, not worth it. I'm happy I waited two months for the price to drop
              There is a small yard I've never been to that's next to the 91 freeway entrance in Gardena, off Artesia & Vermont.. I don't know who owns it. Do you suppose LKQ is going to buy that one?

                We need a Pick your part thread, 325i vert in the yard 9/1 at second Wilmington, probably pulled apart already because the sale.

                I cant believe one of the largest yards closed because a oversight.

                  There is a thread already, I think it's called junkyard in the morning by goner.

                        Put a note on his car, telling him to join r3v. He may not know of this holy place

                          I spotted a cat with a late model schwarz, Illinois plates, vert & had a minty hardtop. When I looked up at it, I missed the wheels, but I'm pretty certain it was some sort of BBSs

                            Ahh yes, I recall. I bet LKQ is probably gonna buy it, just like they bought the yard in Santa Fe Springs years ago so i've been told. How recently did you end up pulling those engines? Are they still letting people go in the yard? I wouldnt mind grabbing a bunch of random bmw bits lol

                              It officially closed Monday, which is when I pulled them.

                                I think I live a few blocks away from you --> we had talked about my radios a few pages ago, and you said as much; I'm a super clean schwarz 1990 vert, Illinois plates, clean hardtop, 15" ronal LS, iS trunk lid
