Default Ohio Junk Yard Pics from 1950's

I was going thru my archives(junk drawer) and came across these photos. An old car friend of mine gave them to me a long time ago. They were taken on Manchester Ave. in Middletown, Ohio in the 50's so don't go looking for them.

Awesome cars. Thanks... In Youngstown, Oh, there is a big yard called Cleveland Auto wrecking. They're into late model suff. But in the late '60s, a buddy and I walked the quarter mile or so to the very back of the yard and found a big cache of stripped Model A's, '30s Chevys, T pickups, etc etc. These cars hadn't been touched in years from the look of things but many appeared buildable. Like a dumbassed kid, I didn't ask about them that day. Later they started denying access to the yard. I wonder often if they're still there.

When spring comes, I'll take the camera and get some pics from the 4 best boneyards around here. One is buying up '50s-'60s cars like hell! I had just finished looking at a Nailhead in a new arrival, a complete '61 Buick Invicta to see a tilt bed haul in a '69 Caprice.

You beat me to it. This is photographic proof that Model A and Model T trunklids were all abducted by aliens sometime in the 50's never to be seen again.

What happened to all the trunklids? Why were they always missing?
