There's one of those polycasts again.

I went to the Pull a Part on the South side of Atlanta today, looking for parts for my truck, and our Chrysler 300's.  The last time I had looked on their website, there were no 70s model Fords or Mercs, so I wasn't expecting to have "fun".  But, much to my surprise, they had a '78 T-Top T-bird.  Fairly loaded, with power windows and seats, cornering lights, sport cluster, etc.  And such a shame, it was obviously in very decent condition before it showed up here.  Very restorable.  I found the HTF interior trim pieces that mine was missing.  I also grabbed the T-tops to have as spares.  And I got the Sport cluster, intermittent wiper switch, and found a decent driver's side turn signal lens in the trunk.  It must have been an extra.  Most of these have a lot of cracking, and spider webbing, but this one was pretty clear, so I grabbed, it.

With me, I just...I just...don't. I still love these cars very much, but just knowing that there are others around (even if you have to be a little patient when finding one) kills all sadness for me. When I'm walking through yards, I take pictures, make a few notes on any desirable stuff on the vehicle, and move on. I think it's also because I see people threatening and berating owners of cars, for doing what the hell they want to do with their stuff. They have the absolute right to be wasteful if they want. Same thing with letting stuff sit around in backyards. You have the right to do that, and nobody else can tell you that you can't do it. All the hate speech gets to you though, even if it's only keyboard warriors acting tough because they're behind screens. About 6 years ago, I was inches from scrapping my wagon. Joined the forum on a whim and it's what's persuaded me to keep it, even if it looks the same and still doesn't run now. I don't know. There's two sides. One side says it's selfish to not let someone else have the chance to put something to use, the other side says it's selfish to feel entitled to someone's stuff because you don't like what they're doing (or not doing) with it. Touchy subject for me, sorry for the little rant. I guess the best thing to do is just what Dan said. Accept that you can't "save" (all of this has made me hate that word LOL) them all, don't rip Censored against people who are just doing what they want with what's rightfully theirs.

Because you can't save them all. But even one saved is one less rotting in a junk yard. (How's that for some profound words!)Thumbs Up
