Noob looking for help

I am a noobie here, so I hope not to offend anyone (I looked for posting rules and didn't see anything that I am violating). I recently had my jeep stolen but the good side is a good friend's father has a couple of MB engines and transmission that he is willing to help me install in cars that have those parts blown or needing replacement. Basically 98+ C's and E's (I have a list!). My question is How do I find cars like that - ones with blown/missing/broken engines or trannys? I am willing to do leg/finger/phone work all I need is a starting place!

Thanks for any feedback.

Steve
