Lots of wrecked boxsters and 911's

Most of these babies are on their way to the big junkyard in the sky. If anyone is looking for used parts this place probabbly has it.

How do you contact them? Rang them a couple of times and no one picked up the phone. Emailed them, no response. I was looking for a 6 speed manual gearbox with all the necessary fitting for a tip to manual conversion... Was, until I found out it is a real pain to do the conversion. I may still consider it down the line

I've called them on a couple of occasions and they usually have what you want, but it ain't cheap... they know the value of used Porsche parts to people like us.

It's a typical salvage yard though... lots of inquiry calls and one guy who makes the decisions as to how much something is worth each day when called.

Insure you are calling during business hours for one thing... they're in California.

Second, leave a message and call them back a couple of times each day until you get someone who is in the office and can answer the phone.
