    Visited Brim Recycling in Cuddebackville, NY. I wasn't expecting any vintage tin as it is primarily a scrap operation....but they had a few older cars. Here's some pictures:

  2. It's worth keeping an eye on these yards, sometimes they get oldies. My one Hudson came out of a late model scrap place - it's not the greatest but I was able to flat tow it home for $300.

    This one's coming home with me....future vintage stock car body. 1935 Chevrolet 2 door sedan.

    I had to pay a bit more than I wanted to...but couldn't stand the thought that it might end up crushed after surviving 72 years. At least it's close to home, so when figuring in the cost of gas to buy a car further away...I'm doing OK.

    When I asked if he wanted to sell the 35 Chevy, his response was "everything here is for sale". I asked how much he'd want for it and he said "make me an offer". I offered $300, to which he responded "I'd get at least $200 just for scrap metal....I'd have to get $500". I was hoping a $400 offer would be accepted, but he held strong on $500.

    Cuddebackville is about 20 miles North of Port Jervis on route 209. Port Jervis is right at the tri-state border of NY, NJ and PA.

    Is that black chevy actually buried up to the hub's or is there a lot of debris on the ground (like what's on the hood)??
    If it's to the hub's she's sure been sitting there a while.

    The Plymouth Wagon is neat...2 door and fairly straight & complete. But it is very rusty. Would be hard to restore.

    I assume you can walk the yard there...I only ask because I can no longer do that at any yards east of the Hudson.
     
  25. Iwas lookin for a 35 chev coach for my dirt modified which I'm making into a vintage stock car. I settled for a 62 Falcon body. Where you gonna run yours? Hank

    First time poster - found this thread when looking for info on B.R.I.M. Recyclers - stopped by today for the first time, on the way home from MMC.

    Any way, I saw some of the older cars pictured here, but only about half. Some have been moved - the two MG's are in the far northwest corner of the property with the Land Rovers.

    I'm sure it varies, but prices are about 3X what you'd pay at a typical U-Pull-It - i.e. $100 for a bumper vs. $30 in PA. Also, cars are packed in really tightly, mostly all on the ground, with many stacked on top of each other.

    Nice to have a U-Pull-It yard somewhat nearby, but I'll still be making trips every now and then to PA.

    You have x-ray vision? :D The Mustang II is gone, but the two older cars in front of it are still there - roofs are crushed in, so I suspect they'll probably die there. Anyone know what they are? I'm not good with the stuff before my time.
