    CaptainScarlet found an old Junk Yard in Michigan that is being cleared, now that the owner's passed. Most of the sheet metal is beyond saving, but there are still a bunch of cars that have a TON of old trim bits that can help somebody out. Brian has reasonable prices too.

    Some of the stuff out there is a 58 Buick (perfect grille), 58 Caddy (grille/bumper), 49 Nash (good frt & rr), 61 Caddy rear half with good tail lights, 2 Chrysler Airflows (1 GREAT grille), perfect 50 Poncho hood & trim. They have a 6' tall pile of Buick & Pontiac straight 8's, misc rear ends, etc, etc//

    I'm too lazy to re-post the rest of the pics, but here's a link to the post on our club site:

  2. OK I am in. I live here in Motown and would love to stroll through there. I am broke like everyone else in this town, so no worries that I will buy everything. I just enjoy digging through the junk. Any 52-59 Ford stuff?

    Someone should get the Airflows.Even if they are junk.I have one finished as a custom that I built and have seen how the parts are worth a lot.It might be worth your time to buy them for parts resale.

    could be fun, i would'nt mind a look see.... if they are clearing it out would'nt it be doing the hobby a service to let everyone know where it is so folks can buy up as much as possible before it gets crushed???

    I'm really glad you made it a point to post this thread letting us know everything is being cleared out and for sale, then not letting anybody know where it is. You may as well be the guy that says " not for sale, gonna fix it up some day".- GOOD JOB!
     
  17. It's mine all- all mine hahahahahaha. What's up with not letting anyone local knowing about this. If there are any 52-54 fords there I could use a couple things. Is there a secret handshake or knock I need to know to find out about this place?

    I included a link in the 1st posting to contact info & pics of pretty much all of the cars that were left in the yard when we went there. There were only a couple dozen complete cars, but the trim bits were all there on those cars.

    Brian, the caretaker of the yard only allows people by appointment to prevent chaos as he closes the yard down.
