    Late colonnade Regal @ east El Paso (TX) pick a part. UPAP @ 12000 east Montana Ave. Drivers door, hood, radiator and shroud gone. Tilt column torn up. A lot of good parts. Maybe someone within a days drive can benefit from this.

    I can see China is bold letters on the rear drum.
    Just when did China start making parts? I'm guessing the drum has been on the car for 15 years at least?
    It baffles me to how solid this car seems? to be only to be junked.
    In MA this is great car for a 455 project I would think.

    Probably was sitting in someone's yard. Either the wife, the mother in law or Codes told them it has to go. Suspect that is why a majority of the older cars wind up in the Pick a Parts down here.
    I don't know when chinesium drums and rotors became commonplace. Guessing it was during the nineties.
    A big drop off in desirability - from '72 to '73 in terms of GM A bodies. I cannot buy this stuff for eventual resale - it is too heavy, too bulky, and too far from customers. And is niche. Got burned with '73 Chevelle stuff a decade ago, that had to be eventually dumped.
