A few weeks back I was told about a 70 Sport Suburban in a yard today i went searching and found it. Factor N code power disc, power windows and locks. Cruise control,dual rear speakers and 3 in the front dash 9 passenger set up. Someone swapped out to manual windows and locks got some good parts off of it for hell of a deal. Here's a few pics that we got of it today i need to go pull all the cruise set up.

Manny, what do you call this searching that you do? Was it "Going yarding"?

It seems to work really well for you! :thumbsup:
Yup Wyatt and I call it yarding I have a bunch local that I visit with a decent amount of C bodies. A friend told me about it and sent some pics I was told it was on top of a hill. Went walking around and some how found it. There were 2 more C bodies i found but it's a big yard would take all day to walk all of it. Couple pics of the other 2 cars I found walking around.

Two pals of mine were rooting around under the dash of a mostly gutted Ebod a few months ago. Heard something, saw something, and they almost injured themselves getting out of that car....totally freeeeeked out.



A frightened possum--blinking in the bright sunlight--crawled out of the trunk and out the door. Heart rates for all animals concerned returned to normal in about 10 minutes. :rofl:
 
Same thing happened to me but I wasn't in the car I could barely see in the car wiped the window and a raccoon looking right back at me. I took off running then i started laughing Wyatt was like what the hell happened!!!
 
I can really use some of those moldings. Especially the drivers door upper molding right below the mirror.

I had grabbed a parts car for mine and the body is a little beat but the parts I need are on it. I took all the moldings off and have many others I have gathered over the years. So many that I have a cheat sheet written down of what is in great shape and what is repairable and what needs to be replaced. I don't have that in front of me at the moment and all the moldings I do have are hidden away. The one I know I don't have is the upper drivers door. That one has eluded me for years.
