ok, so date/time wise, im a little bit flexible. i work mon-fri so it would have to be a saturday or sunday for me. i suggested saturday, jan 14, for now. i know that is MLK weekend but im not off that monday and dont have any other plans that weekend. if someone else prefers a later weekend, we could change it though.
as far as locations, i did a little research. here's a list of vehicles with shared parts to our broncos in local u-pull it type yards.
pull-a-part Atlanta North:
4416 Buford Hwy, Norcross, GA 30071
off buford highway, near I-85, north of the perimeter.
comments: a few e-vans, mostly f150s. mostly 92-96 with a few 87-91's.
pull-a-part Atlanta East:
6513 Marshall Blvd, Lithonia, GA 30058
I-20, Exit 74. east of the perimeter.
comments: again, a few e-vans, mostly f150's. 3 87-91's, 5 92-96's.
pull-a-part Atlanta South:
1540 Henrico Road, Conley, GA 30288
at the I-285/I-675 intersection.
comments: tons of vehicles to choose from. a wide spread of years, even a few 80-86's. lots of e-vans, and the only yard i've found that has a bronco in it.
4600 Buford Hwy, Norcross, GA 30071
right down the road from pull-a-part Atlanta North
comments: lots of e-vans, one 86 f150, the rest is mostly 92-96. i went here once before and wasnt impressed with their selection of f150s, still looks pretty scant.
LKQ Pick Your Part - Fayetteville
155 Roberts Road, Fayetteville, Georgia 30214
off of highway 54, a good bit south of the perimeter.
make: year: date on lot:
E150 1994 11/22/2016
f150 1993 10/19/2016
f250 1997 10/3/2016
f150 1986 9/13/2016
f150 1993 9/7/2016
crown vic LTD 1990 6/29/2016
comments: not a lot of stuff here, and most of it has been on the lot for a while. probably not many parts to choose from.
my conclusions: it looks like PAP Atlanta South has the best inventory. but it might be worth it to go to PAP Atlanta North and then over to U Wrench It. either of those options sound good to me. what do y'all think?
oh, and these are only a few that i found quickly and had websites. if anyone has any other suggestions, im listening.
