Yes sir it is...just ask my girlfriend she thinks I'm nuts...that is how we run our car.
Most of the parts on our car is salvage yard parts. I get my trannys there and every thing but the motor, rearend gear, and the fuel cell. It is possible to be competitive.

Yes it is possible to run salvage parts and be competitive. My advice is to find a salvage that has a good supply of matric parts sitting around and develop a good relationship with them. After going to my salvage a few times, i asked them if they would be interested in putting their name on my car, and now I get all my parts for free. He just tells me go in the yard and find what you need. This year has been a good year for spindles and upper control arms. But like has been said before, other than the motor and fuel cell, pretty much all my stuff comes from salvage. BTW, I run a 78 regal.
