    This is a u pull lot, same setup as U-Pull. $2 entry.

    This place is pretty great. Lots of good stuff right now.

    - several mk3 VWs
    - 4-5 mk4 Jettas (1 wagon)
    - 1 mk4 GTI w/ VR6
    - lots of Saabs
    - 5-6 Volvos mostly S/V70s but one S80 and an 850 wagon 5-speed
    - only a few BMWs, e36 coupe, e36 318ti, a couple e34s
    - Miata with rad snow tires
    - several B5 passats, two B5 A4
    - 4-5 Audi C4s (A6s and 100s, all sedans, one with Eurowerks sticker

    I noticed an abnormal amount of cars with great tires.

    MK4 GTI had Bilstein and H&R suspension, old and a little rusty though.

    A few pics to come...





    They have wheel barrels as well as these sweet wagons



    I have some more photos but doing this on my phone is lame.
    Where is this? The old Johns auto parts? I thought they closed their lot?

    They were bought out by LKQ, a national chain

    Yes, and last I heard they closed the upull yard when they were bought out. Did it reopen?

    Not sure if you saw my post with the pictures... yes, they are open.

    Johns closed the upull yard long before the sale, LKQ rebuilt and reopened it.

    More from LKQ.















    They don't have an online inventory set up yet, but the other LKQ websites have it up so I'm guessing it's in the works. Same with the price list, they have it on sheets of paper taped to the wall right now and a lot of the building seems to be still under construction.

    I see that they keep the wheels on the cars... could someone grab those too?

    Yeah, it's just like U-pull in that there are scrap steels welded and holding the car up in the air. The wheels on the cars can be removed. I bought one off the silver MK4 GTI to use as a full size spare for mine. And a core return is available as well.

    seemed slightly more pricey, but close. No guarantee on wheel condition. I was looking at the longbeaches to have a fulls size matching spare, tire size is 235 something, at least two were flat.

    I just need one. I was unsuccessful in trying to beat mine into round after a run-in with a pothole. If two were still holding air, that is a good sign...

    Thanks for the intell, Glen!

    I did not see any Mercedes... well, didn't notice any anyway. If you give them a call you can ask, they do have the inventory on their computers.
