Junkyard Tour: Cherry Avenue Auto Parts, Birmingham Alabama - Part 3 - VIDEO

Hunting for parts at Cherry Avenue Auto Parts in Birmingham, Alabama turned into a guided tour by "Baz" Sultan, the 19-year-old son of, Paco Sultan, the owner. "Baz" tried to show me, Jody Potter, and Ron Kidd all the old school iron on the yard. In modern day junkyard lingo, the "old" stuff is from the 1980s. Ha! We wanted more and despite the sweltering heat and tall weeds we did scope out a 1975 Datsun 280Z, and a 1971 VW Beetle. For those just joining us, in Part 1, we saw a 1973 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and a 1968 Pontiac Grand Prix in Part 2. Go back and watch if you missed out. Our main reason for visiting Cherry Avenue Auto Parts was to buy parts for our 2000 Buick LeSabre. We bought a wreck at the local auction and needed to find a replacement grill, fender, header panel, headlight, and support structure under the left fender. I found Cherry Avenue's listing on Facebook Marketplace. Their Buick parts car was the same color as my car! That's a major bonus. It saves a ton on paint expense. The Buick gets repaired in the next episode. Stay tuned! Watch Part 1 Watch Part 2
