seen signs? hell, I went to a U-pull-it jyard about 5 yrs ago to get a replacement a/c compressor for my '99 Suburban. swear to God, I walked down one row of GM/Chev Suburbans/Tahoes/trucks where nine in a row had the hoods propped open. you could tell they were recent arrivals due to almost everything still being there. guess which part, the ONLY PART, was missing under the hood? yeah, the a/c compressor I neededI am in a mid Atlantic state where most people drive economy boxes, crossovers, small pickups, etc. V8 powered stuff in the yards is simply rare unless its old. Also heard of LS scalpers who clear out junkyards to resell online at an upcharge. I seen signs of scalpers in my local yards as any carbed engine is always missing its aircleaner.
on that same trip, I watched the frontloader bring out a decent looking '70-80s Chev truck. I literally saw 3 different GROUPS of guys (obviously scavengers) attack it within 5 minutes of each other, two of them simultaneously
