    The further you go out in the yard, the completer the cars are, but the wetter it gets.

    I seem to recall there being a whole bunch of tri- fives in those cattails if that’s the yard I’m thinking of.

    Probably. I never ventured out that far in the north corner. I found a complete 60 Pontiac convertible on the west side all by its self flooded over the front seat there. Been there 3 times and probably seen half of the yard.

    The yard has a lot of good parts. There is at least one 58 Chevy sedan delivery there.

    There is a guy in town that pulled a lot of 49-51 mercs 59 Chevy convertible and bunch of Buick’s and caddy’s out of this yard in 95-96. My merc was one of them. Had to replace the frame and floor in it. Badly rusted out.[​IMG]

    Someone needs to rescue this 33 3/W Jalopy! Lots of work to jack that roof back in place and fab sail panels, but it's savable. Still has a floor w/ seat tracks so it may be sitting above water line.
    Shame some of those good cars were parked in a swamp.

    Doesn't look like it has a frame, probably no transmission in it, so yeah, I'm sure that is a "stick" shift you're seeing!

    No frame. The body was sitting on a couple hoods keeping it out of the swamp.
