    It's funny how two cars are the same color as ours. I haven't mentioned how much I'm miffed by that lol. Could of had matching panels if I just waited longer.

    That 91 really looks clean. I should pull the rear end, driver fender, hood & grille for our purposes.

    The Mark @ 8 Mile was hit, all stuff we were looking for was scavenged. Went to Warren PG and pulled the ECM, ECM relay and coil off the 91 and just the ECM relay off the 88. Both dizzy's weren't complete so I passed on them. Also, the damn temperature & compass thing on the headliner was missing on all three cars. Should have went earlier. Thought I'd get a blower motor for a funsies and Ashley researched it real quick and apparently that's a four hour job. Nope.

    All of those cars have been out for a while now, the 8 Mile one being out for a few months now. I'm not surprised they've been picked over.

    Did all three cars still have engines? I'm giving some serious thought to HO swapping something. Probably the 91 since it's the only one out of all of them with the red light of death at hot idle. The only issue is how to know if the junkyard engine is any better before it's in the car. It's the same reason I backed down from the 2.3T for the Ranger. No good way to verify much of anything other than that the crank turns. Cordless impact won't have enough balls to spin the engine for a compression test. I wonder if they'd mind if I rolled my 20 gallon compressor into the yard...plug it in where the pop machines used to be, then once full, roll it to the vehicle. Full tank should be enough to spin the engine a few times.

    Or maybe I'm overthinking that. Booster pack right on the starter wire, accessory belts off, plugs out except the cylinder being tested. Easier to carry but takes way longer to "refill" once exhausted.

    Oh, yeah. Oil. There is none. Maybe spinning those cranks a bunch of times dry isn't a great idea.
