Today it was a transvestite/cross dresser getting some parts off of a V6 Altima. Miniskirt, high heels, wig, makeup - the works. Whatever - let your freak flag fly. Nice enough guy, but you’d think he’d dress a little more appropriate for climbing around under cars, especially since this PnP lot is not paved, but just has coarse gravel.

This was the first time in a long time that I’ve seen an SVX. Given the more upscale nature of that car is guess that the green paint is not original. The engine looked complete and would probably be a great engine to toss into a Vanagon, but I think I’ve seen only two out here in the last eight years, but that’s more than the number of SVXs I’ve spotted.

They did have two Mazda5s, but they were all the previous generation and thus didn’t have the parts I was looking for. One did have a nice ceiling mounted DVD setup, but that’s not really something I could actually use. If I can scrounge up $2 I might cross the river and check out another yard, but it’s not critical. My busted taillight has lasted this long, so a little longer won’t matter. The damage is relatively minor, and if I don’t look for it I wouldn’t notice, but I know it’s there...
