    I searched and didn't find a topic on this yard.

    1000 cars, some OT from the pictures, most not.

    http://jalopnik.com/5825701/this-1000+vehicle-south-park-junkyard-is-headed-for-crusher

    Quoting from the article.
    The owner has decided that enough is ENOUGH, and is conducting the Phooey Special! All vehicles, trucks, tractors, other items under 5 tons weight $1500 your choice. Some with titles, some without. CASH ON THE BARRELHEAD, no monkey business, no malarkey. Scrappers get lost, contract has been signed. HURRY! First come first served. As is where is. YOU LOAD YOU HAUL! Price goes DOWN to $1200 on August 15th, DOWN again to $900 on August 25th and bottoms out at $600 on September 4th. THE CRUSHER IS COMING and gets everything, that is EVERYTHING September 14th, including your favourite if you don't ACT NOW! You snooze, you lose. The cows want to eat GRASS, not iron!
    It will be all crushed after September 15

  3. And before anyone bitches about the price, realize he has to spend more time dealing with one guy who maybe wants one car, than he does the scrap guy who will buy all and haul away with no complaints about missing this, or rusted that, or whatever. Any convertible in there that's halfway complete is easily worth the $1500.

    I and a friend are going to visit it next week I think. He made the appointment and I'm along for the ride. I honestly dont think much will be worthwhile at it. the photos are several years old and she has been selling for a while. But hell, better to go expecting crap and be surprised than go looking for gold and find turds.
    I'll let ya all know what we find if its decent.

    Website only has a little bandwidth available, and runs for a little while each day

    I just got off the phone with the lady, she seems very upset. She told she is almost embarrassed about the whole thing because of a certain website has been confusing people?? But it's not the hamb, I ask as a fellow Hamber that if you do call please be respectful, she is booked up until august 25 which is my day to go. I will take pics if she allows of course. She said also she wishes people would just go to the website mentioned earlier so they know what she really has. -Austin

    I was there on the 25th and she does have a lot of cars left and other stuff also, but nothing that my skill level would work with, plus I just turned 70 and I am not sure that I want to do another complete rebuild, I`ll put the few pictures that I took up on my site in a few minutes, amanda is a good gal trying to get the cars to the people that will use them...

    Here is a link to an album of some photos that a buddy of mine took on a recent trip to Colorado. <O:p</O:p
    <O:p</O:p

    These are apparently from only 1 of the valleys that are full of cars. It looks like it worth a visit to me and I am trying to get an appointment set up for viewing of what is there. <O:p></O:p>
    My buddy hasn’t bought anything yet but is working on it.

    Enjoy!
