Default Junkyard question

So I have had some pretty good luck keeping my 1996 trooper running by getting parts from the junkyard.

I am now looking for a couple small things for my honda oddessy, and I have had a heck of a time findng ANY oddessys in the yard. I get that they last a long time, but people must be wrecking these things.

Do some cars get parted out before they ever reach the yards?

BTW Crazy Rays in the baltimore area may be the greatest junkyard in the world. i try and make excuses to stop by. I usually look a little funny in my work clothes.


Thanks
chris

GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND. Try that for parts. I've had good luck and good prices shopping online via google.
