If you want to check out this junkyard in-person, you might not be able to see it from inside the fence. It's
purported the owner is a surly fellow, who may not be willing to give you a tour, or allow you to "browse."
You can walk around the fence and take pictures all you want. The best time is in the morning, the pictures below were
taken in the afternoon.
The yard is normally packed with the same cars for years on end. But, it appears
the owner is trying to sell off the inventory, which is unusual, as I saw a list of autos for sale by the trailer office-which
is a good business practice if you're trying to sell stuff. As you can imagine, by looking at the pictures, there
hasn't been a whole lot of effort to sell anything out of here in decades. Times are changing though; there's
a "for sale" sign hanging on the fence, but it's been there for quite some time.
The whole yard
is fairly small, I'd day 5 or 10 acres max, though it's jamb packed in most places. In fact, I don't think
you could get a car out of there if you did buy one without moving several metric tons of other stuff. The business
card says, among other things; "house of two million parts," unfortunately, I think you'll have to go through
that many to find what you need, just look at the photos of the yard!
This is the junkyard headquarters, with parking on the right, but don't park there unless you want trouble.
This looks like an old '47 Chrysler Windsor sedan.
Overlooking the back part of the yard, looking north; you can see it's not all that expansive.
A nice 1961 Cadillac builder, actually in pretty good shape.
Yet another Cadillac amongst other less-fancy models.
More junk cars waiting to be bought by some unsuspecting poor hobbyist.
Here we have a mid sixties Chevelle on the left, and a mid-to-late fifties Opel Caravan on the right.
This old truck has seen better days, and probably its last days on the road.
If you're looking for old headlight housings or grills etc, this is the place.
I see an old cash register, probably worth something.
The car with the school bus yellow hood reveals a 1929/30 Chevrolet. If you know any Amish people, go
to their house and tell them they can pick up a good used carriage and some wooden axle assemblies, like the ones in
This is a detail of the Opel Caravan pictured above. They don't paint 'em like this anymore. I count
at least 5-6 different colors. You would think they could've taken the license plate off when they painted it.
I bet they didn't spend $3000 for the paint job though!
Here's an old thirties sedan waiting for a new owner.
This is a teens to twenties touring car in rough shape, I'm not sure of the make.
That same touring car is in the foreground, with a view of another part of the yard in back.
Looks like a mid-to-late fifties Packard Clipper Super.
This photo (and the one below) were taken several years ago on a Minolta 7000. I'm not sure if the same
cars are still there or not.
This shot was taken several years ago on film. The cars pictured are not in the same place now, and may have been
sold recently or are in a different spot. They were there a year ago I think.
That's it for the tour,
thanks for looking!
