Lots of good sites out there for JYW's............

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Just a quick note here.... I finally found the time to look around the net and see some of the previous team's sites (very helpful N.E.R.D.S site)and potential team's sites and I'm very impressed..........I had NO IDEA there are so many of you out there as jazzed up as I am about JYW's, allot of helpful info that I didn't know about----such as--- the application we send in is NOT the end of the process, you still have to try-out with a challenge that RDF comes up with before you make the final cut (you have to forgive me, as I'm a bit slow...DUH!) Really cool having a list of all the hopefuls........nice to know that there are lots of people as obsessed with junk as my hubby.... For????????inning and end of all questions pertaining to JYW's, from humor to the ultimate in knowledge of the entire process RDF goes through, check out the N.E.R.D.S site....WOW! As usual I feel like I have NO IDEA what's going on......better to educated, I always say. May the Junkyard Gods look down fondly at all you hopefuls.........regards to the DRATS, Mr. Fixit and the Broadcast Junkies....

I don't believe in junkyard gods - is that Hindu?

Ahhhhh, an un-believer...... not everyone must believe in the Junkyard God to have faith in the junk. Hinduism would be certainly work in this case--taking an object that has lived out life in one form or another and transform it into something useful again, perhaps going down roads not traveled before, learning new things....fulfilling certain destinies not fulfilled in it's previous life......but the junkyard God can be cruel, we've all experienced it.....the little nasty turn of luck that loosens up the nut on the bottom of your oilpan on your 1970 VW bus and as you cruise down the road all the oil flows out--the helpful VW oil light comes on, tho--I call it the "your F**cked" light---I swear the thing only comes on when it's too late......anyway, I know that somehow I angered the Junkyard God, and he/she was exacting revenge.....

I can understand a junkyard *God*. It's the idea of lots of little smurfs running around like some weird polytheistic animistic cult that I can't fathom. As for the terminology, in true Junkyard tradition I believe a very loud "OW!" would suffice. Hmmm, there's some cool videos around.

Ray "papa smurf" Berlin might have something to say about all this, that is if he were online. I can't watch him all the time so the number of smurfs running around is anybodys guess. If they are like him they are pretty crafty little devils.

My kids think there are Leprechauns out in our yard, they build little houses for them and leave tiny little peanut butter and jelly sandwiches out for them......who knows, maybe they could be smurfs.....I would highly suggest the PB&J's to appease the tiny trouble-makers, I haven't had any car breakdowns in a couple of years now........
