    Another story:
    My neighbor decided to burn a shed/playhouse down that he had put up in his back yard a few years before. Instead of knocking it down, he just lit the thing. the tree in the picture is on our lot line and over 30' from the fire he made, the shed pictured is in my yard. Notice that the large conifer is dead on his side of the lot line (from the intense inferno he made). He said the fire was so hot, he was afraid it was going to melt the vinyl siding off the back of his house a good 40' away. He was trying to approach it with a garden hose, lol.:crazy:
    This happened before the new neighbor put in the short dog fence, which is not on the lot line BTW.

    looking at completed listings on Ebay I'll probably pull off the engine brackets, but that's about it

    Nice score. The 89 Formula I am parting currently is a pig galore that must have been submerged in the ocean at some point from what I have seen....... 4-5 hours left and I am done with it and on to the next! :) Just need to grab the t top stuff, the exhaust hangers and the drive shaft and steering wheel and it will be stripped of everything salvageable.

    I'm scrapping the 77 Firebird in the garage tomorrow, I'll pick up this Olds tomorrow & scrap it on Wed - I'm off work for two days to get all this done, as I needed to use up some vacation days :)

    THEN I'll have my garage scrapping bay empty...so the search will begin for the next victim! ...although I do have lines on a few cars....

    That is an Olds 98 and it has a 455 in it(all do) why aren't you yanking the 455? If the price were right I might even consider a road trip to get it.

    And yes,it is a 68-72 style not a 73. I will pay you much better then the scrap price for the engine.

    Don't scrap it with the engine in it. Let me know what you want for it.
