Indulge me

As usual, the NYTimes is a bit behind the times, but today's article on the booming internet junkyard business is interesting nonetheless.

As the proud owner of a '76 International Scout II, an '82 Land Cruiser FJ60, an '88 Volvo 760 wagon, and a '91 Honda Nighthawk CB750, I am familiar with hunting for car parts.

Much to my beautiful wife's chagrin, I've spent more than my share of Saturday mornings trekking through acres of rusting vehicles looking for some part that NAPA stopped carrying a decade ago.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting back to my cars, even though I'm pretty sure that none of them will be running after a year in the garage. Oh well, I wouldn't have them if I didn't like working on them!
