Good day at the junkyard IPD sway bars and bought parts off a car I sold a year ago

I wet to the local junkyard today and had a gret time. I First saw the BMW 533i that I sold a year ago that was abbonded infront of my house. It was eventually towed off and then junked. There was a couple odds and ends that I needed for my 633 that I grabbed. Then I went up to one random old Volvo and found that it had IPD struts and swaybars and new KYB Shocks. I got the hole mess for $60...not bad considering the IPD bars would have been nearly $350 shipped to my door.

Ah, yes, the one that belonged to the girl you dated who dumped you, and had the gall, left her BMW outside your house and told you to take car of it. We remember that car and what the girl did, for for sure:

\So, i was dating this girl but she dummped me and left her BMW infront of my house

Now we know what happened to it.

Good find on the Volvo. Finding IPD performance parts at the yard is like scoring old AMG parts for a Mercedes Benz!!!

No, I had a 533 for a short while. Got it cheap, swapped a couple parts with my 633 and then sold it for what I payed for it. The guy who bought it never picked it up from in front of my house. He then just pushed it around the corner. It then got towed.

Sold the 533i and the guy abanded it in front of my house!

It actually was not a bad looking car, was going to keep it for a daily driver but I noticed that it had been repainted, probably by some chain outfit, and I did not want to put effort into a car that would never be correct.

Forget the beater Bimmers (Keep to Volvo 240s and 740s)

Forget those whack girls.
(There are really nice ones out there, I had a date with one of them yesterday, but they don't wear signs, unfortunately, making them hard to find)

Good deal on the IPD swaybars. They really make the handling much better. I bought a set for my old 740T and the car went from a dud, with French style lean on the door handles, to a real performer.

If you have a Volvo 200 or 700/900, get a set. (not valid for IRS cars!)
