    Theres that one out past Southington, off 422.
    Crazy old guy with many rugged dogs.
    Charges 2 or 3 bucks to just walk in.
    Nothing worth buying anymore, but great fun to walk and look at all the stuff.
     
  3. ...if you go, we want pics,...of the dogs too.

    Place out by nelson ledges....Really creepy.

    some of the old stories from the area include, dead bodies being found, huge 4th parties, and cops being run out of the area with their cars burned up.....

    I know where alot of yards are at but I have never been up in that part of the state,I will have to start looking since I have gotten all I can from the yards I know of around here. I really want to hit the yards in the south and south west since most of the stuff around here are rusted to nothing,I know of a yard around Newark and south of Columbus if you are into a road trip.

    Most of the yards around us have either crushed everything old, or its so deteriorated you can't even salvaged parts off it. But, if you have not been there, Feezle Auto Wrecking just over the PA line still has some gems left. Lots of old trucks, a couple of Vegas, a rock solid '60 Eldorado....definately worth a walk through.

    Was that place by Nelson Ledges run by an old guy in a wheel chair a few years back?
    A buddy took me their once. Told me if I wanted to check this place out that I'd have to chat with the old man for awhile till he gets comfortable with you. He was wheeled outside by his daughter {who had a better mustache than I did}. I heard the guy runnin the place now married her. He let us in to check it out after we offered to help fix the screwed up tail light wiring on his old wrecker. Their was some pretty cool stuf in there. Probably the only way to get anything out would be to use a helicopter or a bulldozer. I heard mustache girl married wacko dude and lived happily ever after.

    According to maps.live.com (MSN.com)- the place looks pretty well cleaned out... unless I'm on the wrong spot (looks the same in 1994...)

    It isn't cleaned out. Just under acres of tree's. There is neat stuff to look at, but nothing much worth buying, and what is decent is priced crazy.

    We were there one day when they unloaded an entire truckload of stale bread into a pole building to feed the dogs:confused:.

    He charges 2-3 bucks a head to get in, and you had to sign some release.

    Best to go when its cold or near frozen. The bugs will EAT YOU ALIVE when its warm.

    I've been through it 4 times. I think I'm done:D

    I only live 30 minutes from there, so if you decide to brave it, let me know.

    Me, Jeff and about 4 or 5 other HAMBer's are doing a junkyard run 3rd weekend of January. We were going on the second weekend but I forgot about Cavilcade Of Customs in Cincy so we are holding off for the following weeked. We are hitting a fresh(for us) yard up in Ohio and then heading south about an hour into Ky to another one. Both are suppose to have old iron in them. Anyone that wants to tag along PM me and I'll let you know where we are going to meet for breakfast that morning.
