Well, I made it to Pick'n'Pull - at about 4:05pm this time.

I've never actually been to one before, so it was probably worth it just for the experience of wandering around a giant automobile graveyard.

After maybe 20 minutes of trudging, I found a similar model car. I don't even remember what it was - I think a Mercury. It had the same parking brake console and assembly, so it doesn't matter. Another maybe 15 minutes of disassembly, and I was done - I even took the console, since mine has been kinda messed up by my equipment rack.

So, a mere $37 poorer, I walked out of there with my prizes. When I got to the car, I noticed that (1) my brake handle veers to the left and (2) the one I just bought is straight. The thought that "perhaps I've been bending the brake handle over putting the rack in the car" finally filtered into my brain, and I tried bending the one I've got back over a bit.

It now works perfectly well.

Hey - you in the mood for eating dead animals with me? I'll be out of work at 6 if you think you can make your way up here by then.

Going to Pick'n'Pull is one of my favorite things to do.......

I get SO many ideas being there... and if I had the space and a little extra time, I could seriously piece myself together countless things.

Actually one of the ideas I had for some extra cash, is to buy auction vehicles, fix them up, and then resell them for their regular price. If I play my cards right, I can make a nice profit at the same time selling people perfectly good, repaired vehicles, for less than they'd buy from most anyone else including private parties (mostly because I won't be worried about loan equity to soak up).

I haven't gone to one in like... a year... I need to go again. Just to reaffirm my car-nuttiness.
