Jay and I went for a walk through a junkyard heaven! I did not know that this much stuff was there, this guy is actually our neighbor down the highway.lol

This thing is pretty neat, its used to measure the power output of an engine.

Cool old Scout with a tree trunk stuck in the front bumper.

Old Plymouth still in pretty solid shape

Yikes! That must have been a scary rollover to be in..

Nice style GMC.

I assume the guy that drove this was a woman abuser...

Beautiful old Nova

I remember this truck when it was running and driving! It was my dad's

I remember driving down the roughest road in town with it when I was just about ready to pop out Dallas! 😆
That was 17years ago!

This one I had to do a double take, I thought it was a quad cab truck at first! Scary! 😖

Spotted this minty looking old Ford.

Other then this tree dent this truck is in great shape for its age, it supposedly runs and only needs a clutch.

I am not a Ford fan though so it can stay there, lol.

It even still has the curtains all pinned back nicely...CREEPY! LOL!

After our stroll around the junkyard, we went back up to the garage. Jay ended up trading off the two trucks we just recently picked up from his Uncle Patty's for a 1976 Chev 3/4ton and some cash but Jay just told him to keep it as credit since we do use him to repair our vehicles from time to time when we are too busy.

Getting loaded up.

Itchin' to get it off the truck, lol.

A bit rusty but not a big deal.

Jay got it running and driving in just a few minutes and it runs great! This will probably be the truck he starts taking back and forth to work when he gets time to look it over better.

Sort:  

Sheesh...that Scout is probably worth something.
And that 2 door Plymouth, a hot rodder in the rough.

And that "Fargo" truck. That bed by itself would probably be a high collectible.

That Fargo truck was pretty intact, this guy has a ton of gems hidden in there!

Does he sell any of it?

I am sure he does if people ask, but I don't think much people go wandering back there. I'd rock that 2dr Nova! ;)

A nice variety of cool “junk”!

There is some pretty cool stuff! The power metor looks like a robot to me 😊
Those Plymouths are nice! The crome is still shiny wow! They don’t make them that way anymore, built to last and repair. We have a truck in the front yard that came with the house. Old style, I don’t know if we can get it running though. I am sure I could figure it out.

It's probably worth giving it a shot anyway, maybe it's something quick and easy to fix.

Maybe! My husband want to just haul it to the top of the driveway with a sign that says “free u-haul”.
