BEST JUNKYARD - 2000
Looking for seat belts to replace the bungee cords that hold the doors closed on your beloved '84 Corolla? Get thee to John's. This place has been around for more than 50 years. And we ain't talking about one of those old-geezer-and-a-couple-of-mangy-dogs operations. Six thousand scrapped cars come through John's lot each year. After each one is drained of fluids, all usable parts are stripped off and cleaned up. The tremendous inventory is well organized, and if you can't find what you're looking for, one of the many staffers is certain to be close by to help. Though John's is open seven days a week, you don't have to drive there to shop. Parts can be ordered by phone, or off the Web site, with the help of an easily mastered parts-locator gizmo. Assuming you live in the metro area, your part will be delivered to your door within a few days.
