Oops. Just had a wagon with a perfect frame hauled off to the crusher this morning.
I’ve tried that more than once, it never works out. People won’t buy anything and there is nowhere to store the massive pile of parts. It all ends up in the trash.At the very least, please save as many interior parts as possible. They are getting near impossible to find in good condition and could be swapped over to a new one if need be.
They never will be either. Too low of production numbers and too many different parts. Each wagon has it's own tail lights, grill, bumper covers, etc. I have a wagon that I bought in 17 and will be driving it until I die. Folks can have their fancy new muscle cars and plug in bullshit, lol. I am collecting and keeping certain parts that I may need in the future and have plenty of room for them. That is it though, I no longer care what other people may need later.Storage is cheap when you have it and expensive when you don't. Bottom line.
"Never" is a long time.
Guys who tossed all of the late 60s and early 70s Mopar parts are kicking themselves now.
Same goes for Pontiac parts of the same era. And Ford. And so on.
Could the 90s B-Body be that someday? Maybe? I can't predict the future. It has a good chance. People are much more accepting of 4-doors these days. LOL. And the B-Body wagons were the last of an era.
However, if a guy (or gal) plans to drive B-Bodies for the rest of his life (like I plan to), maintaining a cache of parts is key. Wagons are rare enough and prices are high enough to justify saving parts at this point ---- if you have the means, passion and ability to keep these crazy 30 year-old machines on the road.
I've always had a wish of working with a team to re-pop parts for these cars. I'd donate an entire interior. LOL. But the time still isn't right yet. They just aren't old enough (or popular enough yet?) to be interesting to companies like OPGI, Classic Industries, and so on.
