Bashed my knuckles for the last time

Im sad to report that Chilliwack Pic A part will be closing their doors forever on feb 22 2020 Image

I heard the owner isn't even selling his license and its unlikely the city will ever issue a new one.

I was there a few weeks ago to get parts for my grandsons D21 pickup.

picked many good parts out there, some im still running today! still have a 5spd sitting in stock I nabbed years ago. the worst was not finishing a job just to show up the next day with someone on your part.

My tale of the auto wrecker....kinda like what Robyn alluded too.....

Back when I had my GTS I went looking for a headlight mechanism as mine had seized up. Low and behold there was a nice GTS
that had some serious parts thrown at it. Underneath I spied a set of Koni double adjustable race shocks. I had gone just as a scouting mission but when I saw these shocks I left in a hurry to go get my tools.

By the time I got back..the shocks were GONE! Damn!

Lately I went looking for a G35 part and found that a 2006 is very rare these days.

If anybody is cruising what yards are left, let me know of you spy one of the earlier G35's, looking for a very specific part.
