    So following the lead of another poster on this site today I went down to U-Pull-it & Pay
    2501 W Buckeye RD Phoenix AZ

    Proper name should be "You pull it and we screw you with your pants on"

    the Imperial has no motor and some rust underneath

    The New Yorker no rust and a 440 engine

    I spent 2.5 hours yanking stuff off then went up with my wheelbarrow loaded to pay

    When I got up to pay they itemized everything..they probably would have added an extra charge if they found a pube stuck to something. After they (cashier and some guy that didn't know his ass from his elbow) started to tally up about 8 items (exterior moldings) I asked the cost 170.00 !! WTF????? I figured it would cost me 500.00 or more to get about 50.00 worth of crap I had pulled off: switches, moldings, radio...not much really.

    So for the first time in 40 years of wrecking yarding (probably 300 visits at least over the years) I said no.. not going to buy this stuff. Walked back & put it in the car. I did keep one thing: the sequential turn signal relays/motor from the trunk. Brought it up and the guy shows it to the cashier she doesn't know and the guy doesn't know what it is. They ask me and I say relays and they say what for??? I say for the headlights. OK they were good with that!

    These 2 employees had no idea of what they were looking at and no doubt had never worked on a car. Clueless. Pathetic.

    As our president once said " If they turned their brains to gas you wouldn't have enough gas to drive a piss-ant's motorcycle around the inside of a Cheerio"

    OK no president ever said that but I did.

    On the NewYorker I may have taken the N76 "coolant recovery system" with bracket, they make a factory look on other year Mopars, just my $.02

    Wow! There is still a lot of parts left on those cars. I've had half a car on a cart and it didn't cost me 100 bucks at my Colorado PicknPulls. I'd try again and make sure when you go there are different employees. That's ridiculous. However, how often do you find those parts around.
    Thanks for at least checking them out.

    If I had the ambition I'd go get those disc brakes. But I don't. :(

    No way am I going back to this craphole...once was enough. I got the relay/motor out of the trunk for the turn signals. Someone else can deal with those morons.
    I can only take so much stupidity from owners who think that all their stuff " is hot sh*t on a sliver platter when it's a cold turd on a paper plate"****.

    ++++ I may have to double check on this as my source is rather hazy on the exact wording.......

    That's what you get for not price checking before you go in.

    Any U Pull I've ever been to has a price list/range for different components. Body parts and moldings etc will have price guidelines as do engines, transmissions, starters, alternators, you name it.

    Oh yeah. easy to price the common stuff. How many sequential turn sig relays go across their counter.... LOL. They never will make the list.
    I find what I need at the pick n pull, and get a price before removing stuff

    Unless it's a yard that caters to "classics", I doubt they would differentiate between a sequential relay and any other electrical component if for no other reason that they won't know the difference.

    Then they rape you with either a core charge or electronic hazard fee or some other BS rip off fee.

    hum.. just you so you know but here in France it is a hell to find parts.. moldings are the rarest stuff , if you miss one you'll never find it, internet changed a lot of things, but before that, usually it meant you have to buy a whole part car to have it...

    There is so much valuable parts on this imperial...

    I'm not one to talk since my level of patience is turning out to be inversely related to my age but in these circumstances a little discussion with the "manager" might have helped. Often the manager is a more "senior" person with enough smarts to understand his business is better off getting maybe 60% of the obscene asking price rather than nothing. I know, easy for me to say from my comfy armchair and I'm not sure I wouldn't have exploded at those idiots you had to deal with.

    FWIW... Pick-n-Pull and U-Pull-It often have 50% off sales on Labor Day weekend, 4th of July, & Memorial Day etc.

    Just a month ago was at another wrecking yard and came out of there with about 25 weatherstrips, a buttload of moldings, nameplates, switches and other stuff.

    The lady looked at the pile and said 45.00 Insanely cheap.

    Hold your horses!!! I just realized they have a way to save $ at the wrecking yard!!!!

    from their website:

    Reward yourself with FREE parts
    • Earn 1 point for every dollar spent on parts
    • Earn a $50 store credit for every 1,000 points earned

    So after you spend 1,000.00 you get a 50.00 credit So I'm guessing with that little pile of parts I had I would have had 50-75 % of the requirement to get a 50.00 credit. Wow.


    WAIT check out the environmental fees they have on parts including things like knobs and moldings among other things here

    PLUS core charges on things like intake manifolds (so they are going to rebuild them later?): this is just complete BS and a total rip-off

    INTAKE MANIFOLD (LOWER) cost 24.99 core charge 5.25 environmental fee 3.02

    KNOBS - EACH 0.75 core charge 0.00 environmental fee 0.08 WTF? is the knob contaminated
