PostSubject: Junk yard finds RMW and Caprice Wagon   Fri Jul 18, 2014 6:01 pm

So I went to my local junk yard today and was amazed that I found these two wagons.
Here's the RMW it was smashed under a century :'(

And here's the caprice in a lot better shape with 114,xxx the interior is in pretty good shape but there's some body work and rust on the outside

That's all the pics I got of the to wagons. I can't believe they were both in the same yard!

I also found these just for fun

Malibu and Volvo wagons

I snagged the hatch lock piece that sticks out of the top of the hatch from the caprice cause mine broke off and I also found a nice blazer center console and some e36 headlights to do those mods.

If you go back, I could really use the tailgate cover from the Caprice if it's in good shape!

Nice find. Looking for the cross members for the roof rack. With knobs. Do you know if they had them?

The Caprice is a late 91 to a 93. The crank window door panels are rare, and worth some money if they are not broken. You should grab the lenses for the cargo bay handles. If the dash pad is in good condition it would be good to pull. The driver's side arm rest is golden, and the passenger's side is good too. The gate glass looks to be a non-defrost. They make tinting look better than the ones with the defrost stripes. Get the wing vents. Get the rear wiper arm (lift the arm until it stops, pull the tang out until it holds the arm up, wiggle the arm gently, and pry under it a little and it will come off). The wiper arm is getting rare. If the rear door bottom trim is good remove it, as well as the trim behind the door on the fender.

Yeah stingroo I'll defiantly grab that if its not rusted away. I just learned about that after talking with a roadmaster owner I saw parked on the side of the road tonight.

Thanks Fred for a list of the good things to grab! What do you mean by lenses for the cargo bay are though? And Rick it doesn't have the rack with the knobs on it Sad but I do have a rack but no knobs with it. Does anyone know if I can take that rack on the caprice and put it on my 94 RMW? I think I actually gave the knobs back to the previous owner because I found a little bag of his belongings and I think I remember seeing the knobs in there. I might give him a text and see if he still has them around and if I get them then I might be able to hook you up Rick! That's if I can take the caprice rack and put it on my 94RMW.

Somewhat off topic but on your next visit, can you document what's left on that G-body Regal there next to the RMW?

Greg I can take some pictures for you but I don't know anything about those cars. I might go back next week sometime.

What an insane way to store the cars. More damage caused then the reason they came in. Parts become unusable. Might as well just crush them immediately and scrap them.

Not sure. The body is in pretty good shape but it needs some interior work. I saw it at Scrap Busters in Michigan if you live close.
