The misadventures of a rednecks front yard FINAL crush date changes... aargh!


PM me for info on stuff, but I"ve gotta get 20 some MB's and 20 some other cars out of my property this month.
PICS before/during
pics after!
I'll put a list up soon, on the for sale section, but if it's possible for members to come out and do a strip party, I've got a LOT of things that need moving.

so far, only a few parts pullers have arrived...
come on everybody! I gots LOTS of cars that need dissassembly!

the city is going to make me hire a wrecker and haul them to the CRUSHER!!!
I don't want that. I want parts stored in my garage, or picked up by you members.

OK, I've updated my USERCP to allow emails from members.
I created a junk email account specifically for this kind of thing, so eveybody please use the email link now.
I just cannot keep up with the PM folder with moderator requests and parts/car/schedule stuff. thanks!
