Some are kinda stupid ~ when I ran a junkyard I never had much inventory because I SOLD EVERYTHING CHEAPLY ~ DUH .
Not sure how much truth there is to this as I am not a conspiracy type person. I was told the state (CA) pays the wrecking yards to crush cars over 10 years old more than they would get for parting out. Meaning they do not want them on the road. Also could be the reason the scrap parts cost more than replacements here.
