junk in the trunk

Postby Hardcoregirl » Mon Mar 15, 2004 12:04 am

Um...I need some parts for my car. Which would be a 96 Paseo. I need the antenna and the passenger side sideview mirror.

I went to a junkyard in Oak Ridge and they wanted 45 for the antenna and 50 for the mirror.

Is that ridiculous just to me or anyone else??

I just am wondering what is a good junk yard to get car parts from that won't A)rip you off B)double rip me off because I have a vagina.

do you need the whole roll up antenna or just the screw on type?

The screw on type is $15 new. You can also get one of the crappy hidden ones for like $6.

Not finding a price on the mirror but you can get a generic mirror that will work.

Are those take it off yourself prices or they take the parts off prices?

A power antenna is about $100 without labor to install it so that price is about right for a power antenna. You can get a generic power job that will have to be rigged to work for less but well it has to be rigged to work.

That price is a bit high on the mirror even its a power mirror.

Good luck on the finding a junk yard that won't rip you off. I ALWAYS go stinky in dirty work clothes and I don't think I get the best prices.
There is no replacement for displacement.

The only junkyard I know of in oak ridge is fox auto salvage. They have a lot of newer cars and they're expensive. Every junkyard I've visited around here has been overpriced. It's something to do with supply and demand and the abundance of rednecks in this area. Lambert's on clinton hwy is my favorite. Thier prices are reasonable and they let you remove the parts yourself. The guy who owns the place is a dick. You just have to deal with him like you would deal with any aggressive redneck. Avoid using complete sentences. If you have an authentic redneck accent, use it. Don't dress too nice. Don't mention nascar or the vols. I've never been ripped off there, but then again, I don't have a vagina.
