Not really, but keep in mind this was late 60's to the mid 70's. No computers to let them know what was in stock. I would ask to see what came in or ask if he had a certain part. He knew what I was really doing but pretended not to. There was this one mean guy that I would sneak around to the back, climb the fence, feed the junkyard dog and rummage around a few cars. I only got caught once.
