Default Sourcing Swap Cars

I'm well aware this has been covered and if you have old threads with info post them up before flaming.

Ok, so pretty much as the title states, were do you guys source complete swap cars from or just complete front clips? Oh, and it doesnt matter if you guys post up jdm or usdm I'm looking into either. I've been keeping my eye on drivesafely.com, but for the most part I just see overpriced WRX's and STI's. Is it unrealistic to try to pick up a totalled usdm wrx for around 2.5-3k?

Id be interested to see what people answer to this. Every time I ask someone I meet how they got their donor car, it seems like there is some taboo, black magic element involved in it from their reaction.

The most legit info I have gotten is that a lot of auto repair shops have access to or some 'hookup' with a local junk yard...

There are people out there that utilize these 'hookups' as a source of income so you need to understand that this information will most likely be difficult to acquire

I can't believe no one has any insight on this.

eBay. I bought my motor and trans off eBay through JHot. I've also bought a few things from JHot's Denton Texas warehouse. I've purchased a few parts off eBay.UK as well. For aftermarket parts I've used these guys...
