Two 1983 Wagons SR5 4WD at Claxton, GA Pull-A-Part

Post by Skydog »

Hey folks, these two 1983 wagons are both complete and, as of today, are at Elite Recycling and Pull-A-Part, 3475 Bill Hodges Rd, Claxton, GA 30417. Call Elite with any questions: 912-739-7122. These have been in my family for a while, and I am working to consolidate an estate. I do not know much about cars, but I have a great appreciation for these "silver bullets", as we called them. Both have navy plaid seats. Happy parts hunting! :~)

why did you immediately send them to the junk yard instead of offering parts off them?

and also, was it sent to the recycling center or scrap yard? cause elite recycling appears to be a metal scrapper, not a junk yard...

Skydog said he's consolidating an estate. Dealing with estates sucks even in the best cases and can be a mountain of work so I can understand their priority being the need to get the estate settled asap.

Thanks for the heads up skydog,

We appreciate your letting us know and hope the estate settles reasonably well for you.

For clarity, Elite Recycling does have a Pull-A-Part lot onsite AND a scrap metal operation. These two wagons are on the Pull-A-Part lot. Check out their facebook page. And thank you Chris and dlb for your comments.

I called them today. One has already been crushed and the other is due to be crushed today. They don't keep anything than 2000. :(

what a shame, would have been better to see if someone would buy them direct. the transmission alone on them would have likely been worth more than the scrap value.

it appears like they had been slowing returning to the earth where they were parked decades ago. back from whence it came.
