I've just stumbled upon this sub-forum and figure you folks would be the ones to inquire about a wrecking yard loaded with great E30, 32, 34, 36, 39 parts close to my home in far NW suburbs of Chicago.
Folks in Chicagoland parting the above mentioned cars feel free to reply, I need stuff from all.
If you can leave two black stripes from the exit of one corner to the braking zone of the next, you have enough horsepower. - Mark Donohue
Ive got 2 e34s and 1 e30... let me know what you need
"Big. Bad. Sedate but threatening, like a muscled German mobster in a too-tight suit. This is the E34, the world's most anonymous continental ass-hauler."

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I would like to get a thread going with some Chicago yards.
I have been using picknpull lately. They have one in Summit IL, Wadsworth IL, and Hammond IN. I have been to the Hammond and Summit locations, and they are very organized and cheap.
Nobody in Chicago land goes to junk yards ??
I rebuilt my prelude out of victory auto wreckers back in highschool. It's in bensenville or elk grove village forgot which one. Then there's 2 in Lockport. But honestly didn't see to many euro cars, LOTS of old US and jap cars tho...Originally Posted by WhoNew

There used to be a bunch on Rt 83, but they are all gone now. Not really Lockport, but close.
I would be interested in JY near joliet and Lockport also. I "heard" about a Euro yard in joliet, but have no name or location.
I know that the the one east off of 83 & north of archer is gone. so is the one between the rivers. I thought the one at the end of 107th was still there.Originally Posted by WhoNew
I know there is rte14 autoparts in woodstock. but that is just too far for me.
Hey Ross, just heard about a yard with some Euro cars in joliet. Gonna go check it out this weekend.
LKQ orA Reliable at 2247 139th Street has a decent foreign stock. I was over there a few weeks ago for some Lexus parts, and was really surprised at the German stock they has. I'm closer to the one on North Ave in Chicago, but I'd go back if I had a need.
