Ive recently come into a huge hole in my radiator after running through a flock of birds. My car is a 1981 pontiac catalina, Big old GM B-body like the caprices, etc. What would be the best place to get a radiator for it? Not really looking for new because i dont have the money, how much do junkyards usually charge? And would anyone happen to know of other radiators that will work well?

solder it, copper solders easy just try not to close off any of the rows of tubes

depends on the junkyard owner they all make there own prices for instance the one guy by me is a thief he will charge 75$ for a radiator, the other guy a little further from me will charge me about 20$ its the owners prices

Look in your Yellow Pages for radiator repair.
Even if it cant be fixed they probably have rebuilt (repaired) radiators.
