I got a really rough insight im about to junk. It's like a 2001, silver, manual tranny.

front end is gone, interior is all torn apart. Anyone interested in getting the whole car for cheap?

I need it gone within like 4 days

Thanks.

Does anyone happen to know what these are worth to a scrap yard or junkyard btw?

being mostly aluminum does that make them worth more?

Does the car even run? Any pictures? Is there anything left worth saving? (I'm about two hours east of you.)

I'm sure there are plenty of people interested. If you could post some more information about it, that'd be really helpful.

IIRC, the aluminum chassis is around 600 pounds (with everything else removed).

Post pictures and a starting price and you'll get replies.

Not really. Scrap metal people consider a bare chassis as "irony" aluminum because of all the steel bits spread around the chassis. It is a huge job to clean the chassis of the steel parts to make it into "clean" aluminum. Clean aluminum is currently about 50-60 cents/lb. Lots of work for not a lot of money - don't ask me how I know ;)

I ended up just giving away my first G1 chassis after I stripped it bare. Factoring what I’d pay to rent a truck to scrap it, best to give it away to a very grateful mobile scrap guy.

Care you parting it out? Can I PLEASE buy the front catalytic converter?
