    The 54 Buick appears to be a convertible with someone's attempt at a removable hardtop... Check out the rear qtr. window.

    I'm new to this forum, but I have been browsing this thread all afternoon . . . not even 1/4 thru it! Tragic and sad, but absolutely fascinating!

    I don't remember seeing any and looking through my pics. i don't see any in them.
     
  14. Well,,,,, nuts!

    Thanks for your time.
     
  15. I visited there this past summer. They are crushing cars, a lot of cars. They were crushing them as I was walking the yard. A few of the cars seemed like they would be saved but the majority of the cars had big X's on them. I hate to say there probably wont be much left this summer if they kept the pace they were working at. I'm glad to say I at least made it there, its a really great experience to say the least.

    I snapped a few pictures while I was there but I don't know what happened to them, I'll try and find them if anyone would like.

    Ford Mike- It is a shame to see the stuff go to the crusher but most of it is rotted so bad it's well beyond fixing but there are/were still alot of good usable parts left.
    Here's a couple more pics.

    This shot is neat to me because there was a spot near my house growing up that had 3 Divco's in it just like this, same terrain, same looking trucks, same condition... even the snow looks right!:D
     
  23. With all of that white sand, it must be near the beach.....:D
     
  24. These are a little east of Dickshooter, Near Bruneau, SW Idaho. There were well over 50 here when I found them. Same old story, not for sale, the old man died, Grandson started turning them into cash (Kia's).:(

    There's probably pictures of these somewhere in the thread, they're visible from the highway and have been there for at least five years. Most of the front sheetmetal is gone, probably donors for two door cars. I'd still love me the wagon.

    That '40 Chevy convertible and the '46-8 sedan delivery deserve a better fate....

    The Pick-n-Pull set the Galaxie, bucket seats and console didn't last long, but they apparently didn't need the shifter.

    Also at the same yard, a pretty well picked over '63 Impala.

    And at the yard next door to it are these. As far as I know, no one has ever been allowed to go into this yard, which explains why these have been sitting there so long.
