    I'm looking for a late model truck/SUV salvage yard or website. 1990 to present would be ideal. Thanks.

    I've got to fix my Yukon first, but I'm looking at a 99+ GM truck with front end damage for a live axle conversion. 1 ton of course. I've done Harleys this way, too.

    Okay. I deserved that. Left it wide open.

    To clarify, I've picked up salvage Harleys and fixed them. Made some money at it, too. Thinking about building a 120 inch with a 6 speed. Custom everything. Street Vibrations is coming soon.

    SV is getting big. Last year there were something like 18,000 bikes in town. You should come back over and enjoy. It's usually the 3rd weekend in September. When did you grow up here? Where are you now? I noticed on your site that you have a Mach I for sale. I used to run a 73 Mach I at Woodburn in Oregon. Fun times. Picked up a 351 CJ block from the factory and built the hell out of it.

    I moved to washington state about 2 years ago. I lived there just about my whole life except for my first 2 years in New Jersey. I do miss it but there was nothing when it came to jobs or good schools unless you played sports. I plan on visiting very soon. It will be nice to get a taste of home again. How has Hot August Nights been? I hear that its not as big as it used to be. A year or so before I moved it had started to slow down becuase of those stupid riots.

    Hey, I moved here from Oregon 2 years ago. How do you like all that rain? HA. You can have it. Hot August nights has been okay. I didn't think it was getting smaller, but I really don't pay attention to the reports all that much. I wonder how Street Vibrations will be this year after the stupid asses in Laughlin kill themselves. I here that weapons checks will now be part of the festivities.
