I'm pretty much out of ideas, I have the shell from my mk3 jetta in my backyard, its on cinder blocks right now, no wheels no subframe nothing, and some ******** reported it to the town, so now it must be gone by the end of this week. The only thing I can think to do is cut it into peices with a sawsall and haul it to the scrapyard. Any ideas?

do you have a title for it?
a towing company could take it to the scrapyard for you if you do.
or call one of those junk haulers, a lot of them will come get them at no cost to you.

Haul it yourself if you want to get $150 plus from the scrap guy or look on craigslist, there are always people looking for scrap cars, they should take it for free, but the sleezy ones will charge you. I have a guy I use, but he wouldn't make the trip down there.

alot of places around here (nj) only take it for free if it has a motor in it.
when i parted that glx and i was done w/ it, i called a bunch of places around and they wanted $50 to take it since it didnt have a motor in it anymore

so i called this dbag paul who i kinda knew, and who owns a junkyard - he pulled it out on his flatbed for nothin'.

cut it up into smaller pieces and throw it in a dumpster behind some store.

Cut it with a sawzal, take it to a scrap yard and get paid! The price of metal is going up. You will get a good return. Last time I cut up a mk3 Jetta, I got $98 for it at the scrapyard. Not to mention it was fun as crap cutting it up.

That's what I always do. If it takes you $75 in blades you need to work on your technique.

scrape the vin numbers off, drag it into the yard of the person who complained, soak it in gas and set it on fire.
you forgot to paint 'eat me' on the roof first

i use an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel

I have used that in the past and it works good, but it takes forever( and gotta watch out for exploding cutting wheels!). I had an old milwaukee sawzaw and it would go through blades pretty fast, but then I bought a new milwaukee swazaw and the metal blades that are like 14-10 teeth per inch that are labled as "the torch" and it cuts through like hot butter. Neal-Bob and my self just cut a rabbit up and we only used 2 blades.
