    There is one junkyard in northwest wisconsin that still brings in old stuff. That would be Kesslers in Earl, Wisc. My only interest is in seeing this stuff utilized before it someday doesn't exist, as all the other yards up there have. I have bought stuff there for over 30 yrs. There are 1920's,30's,40's,50's,60's. Pictures shown are from a recent visit.

    ALSO, used to be a great "hidden" yard in/near Camp Roberts in Monroe County. I used to live near there, but was too broke to buy anything. It was overgrown with trees & poison oak, etc. Many complete cars from 50's & 60's. Sorry no pictures.
    Any 'Sconsin dudes know if it is still there?

    I don't think I have ever been to a junk yard with trees in it. all we have around here these days are the big chain junk yards that only keep cars for a couple weeks.

    It's in Earl, WI. Been going there 8 years now. Well worth the trouble getting there. I fly half way round the world to get my parts there. Was there in January this year. Prices low in the winter and we were the only guys there. -20F being the reason I guess;-) Many cars been there for decades, but he gets new cars in regularly. Some 40s, lots of 50s and 60s. He's got tri-fives, '59s, Hudsons, Pontiacs, convertibles and some rare 2 door wagons. Had three '49-'51 Mercs in in Jan including a sledable coupe.
    1950 Buick Woody too.

    These photos were taken in 2006 and 2008 but I was up there again this spring and most of them were still there.
    Here are the Fords which attracted my eye.
