But is there really anything wrong with that? Surely the glass and plastic are fine and won't cause cars to become lemons once they're installed, right?

The existing cars will become lemons because of corrosion that will occur in their wire harnesses, causing all sorts of mysterious intermittent problems.

But you're right, the glass and plastic parts would be fine to reuse. Maybe metal parts too, if you inspect them closely and they have no areas for hidden damage to occur.

Absolutely, metal, glass and plastic are mostly cool to salvage. But the bottom line is there money to be made in some other way than selling them to unwary buyers. If it takes 2 hours to recover a $1 cup holder, then no. If it takes 2 hours to pull a $1,000 pair of fenders or $2,500 front clip, then yes.

I said before try to salvage the copper in the wiring harnesses, but thinking about it that may be not worth the trouble. With the increased use of electronics the harness contains less copper than ever. The wire has become tiny and even my 12 year old truck has the wires carrying power and data on the same wire.

Looks like the center of gravity is fairly low, so...

Maybe.

K-F hung on filling niches and specialty markets the big three didn't bother with. When the post war hunger for new cars had been filled the biggies decided to crush all the little guys.

I'm guessing "street" is the autobahn.

I thought after years of drought and disastrous fires in CA, the heavy rains that refilled the reservoirs took care of that. But now northern CA is ablaze.

That's sad.

Look at that earthquake resistant foundation.

Gravdigr 10-14-2017 02:28 PM

Fuck 'em. Burn 'em all.

xoxoxoBruce 10-14-2017 02:37 PM

Burn all the earthquake-proof foundations?
