Did anyone feel Sorry for those Dubbs?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I know that there are plenty of Land Rovers and Olds out there, but those VW’s are vintage. Seeing them torn apart broke my mood completely.

There were more VW beetles produced than any other car in history. And cutting them up to make sand rails, etc. is a very traditional thing to do with one. And those were late 70's models, not really vintage yet. Yes, it would hurt to see an early bus suffer at the sawzall and angle grinder, but a late model beetle is just thinning the herd a little.

Notice how the teams go for the Vw pieces? Why? Because it's simple and it always works.As for doing the butch on Mexico beetles,they're a dime a dozen....those looked like late 80s or early 90 models but were left hand drive.I believe the one last week(correct me if I'm wrong) that donated it's front beam was right hand drive.

They're bloody VW's! Just let it go! Crush 'em and make Coke cans.

Now what gets me is that pinkish 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo sitting atop of the pile of stuff outside the work area's. Poor thing.

Jed, I know what you mean. That blue beetle's body was almost perfect (besdies that left fender). I use to work on my friends beetle and finding body parts out here was very rare (expensive too).
