    Who in Chicagoland, including Indiana has the largest collection of wrecked 80 cruisers? Needing nothing major just pick through and grab odds and ends when needed.

    Yup. I don't think any yard in the Chicago area keeps vehicles very long. I've never seen more than one 80 in any yard.

    Good luck. 80s are near impossible to find in the pick and pull yards. They didn't make a ton of them in the first place and most are still on the road, or at least on craigslist waiting to go back on the road.

    I like Auto Parts City in Waukegan on Washington Ave. Fair prices and two good size yards - one domestic and one import. They rotate their stock more frequently than other yards.
