    This thread is for pictures of Rancheros that are no longer around and have since passed through the crusher.

    Any way you stack it that's still sad. Once those parts are gone - - -

    Oh, I get it! His empty backyard would be a picture of a Ranchero that is no longer around because he got rid of his Ranchero's. Classic!

    I thought it was the "Carpenter..." thread. That is the absolutely stupidest for this site besides the political crap. Next to the paging you about a frapping dudge aftermarket air doohickey. To each their own stupid schtuff.

    He has a point in that how can we be certain these Ranchero's went through the crusher? Maybe some were purchased & bondo'd up. Who's to say someone didn't drop in a wicked Q-motor and paint one of them?
    I know the two I posted will never see the light of day again.

    If you followed along with his efforts to find parts and his checking out the yards you would know that he has gone back on multiple times for other folks and learned that the cars had since been crushed. That is how he knows. Do try to keep up.

    If you don't like it don't bother to click on this thread and certainly don't bother to post your small minded thoughts such as what you just posted. This is a Ranchero forum and this thread was created to document the wasteful loss of valuable resources and to provide a reference of a quickly deleting parts supply for this rare vehicle. As can be seen from these pictures all photo posted to this point have all been from 1970 -1979, that is not because they were the only rancheros that I am interested in, it is because they are the only ones still showing up in the parts yards and it will not be long before the '70-'79 models no longer well be showing up in the parts yard. Most parts yards out West do not hold on to these cars until they rust away to nothing as does a former Ranchero owner on this forum. Most part yards crush these parts resources within 30 to 60 days of obtaining them. Without awareness to how wasteful we are as a society, we as a society will only continue to be ignorant and wasteful to the point of our own extinction. We as a society need to become less of a disposable Society in our consumerism.

    As I stated above most the parts yards out West do not keep any of the cars for more than 30-60 days before crushing them. I posted no pictures of Rancheros from the few yards that do not crush their inventory in this region.
