Woah, the last pic shows a lot of the internal structure of the car. Fascinating.

Welcome to the club Jeff. I've been slicing and dicing these cars since I was able to drive.

Well, trust me, I went through this with my last Elite I had.

I missed selling my old Red Elite. Went to Michigan to a guy that owned 7 of them.

And when I strip a car...I strip a car.

Yeah, I agree sometimes they have to be used for parts.
This is the ranchero I bought last spring for some parts.  It was too far gone with rust IMO, so cut it up and scraped what I couldnt sell.
 
and then after
 
even the rear and bed parts were removed...
 
Then the rest to the scrap yard in my trailer
 
 
Most of the parts are already sold

Love the military trailer, we have one just like it.

I don't like having to scrap them either, but sometimes they get to live on in other cars. There was hardly anything left of the brown GTS after other forum members and I pilfered what we needed, and I'm getting ready to do the '75 GTS the same way - and it runs and drives.

I own it halfway. The wife's owner don't find the registration. When the car went for auction, the insurance didn't bother looking for the keys or paperwork.

There's a lot of talking about the papers. I'm trying my best to get them from the wife's owner, but if she can't find them, I can't create them. What do you want me to do, I'm not gonna give the car back because of that, and I don't want to cut it, I can't, it would kill me to saw a fastback, even if it's rusty

Back in the day when I first got it, and before I striped it.

See how proud I am, then take a look at the passengers handle and how much work I had ahead of me.

 

SO happy I imported the 73 Banana.

Just kidding. Some must die so others may live. And so it goes.
 
I've cut up my share of Torinos (3) too but I never documented them. That way there was NO PROOF that I did it!!
