Wisconsin & Minnesota HAMBers- anyone - CARS GETTING CRUSHED!!! Want 'em?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Junkyard Dog 32, Mar 24, 2005.

  1. There's a yard in Hayward, WI (Simons Auto Salvage)
    I've known the owner for a number of years and spoke with him, today.

    HE'S CRUSHING EVERYTHING!
    "Just going right down the line." were his words.

    Trouble is, he can't/won't let anyone in the yard for insurance liability reasons.

    HOWEVER, I'm in. I'll take group shots and if you guys see something you want, I can get you a price, and maybe some better pix (however, I can't make many trips unless I'm being compensated....)
    Nothing is going for more than $400... I don't think.

    There's '30s and '40s cars, on up, but the Northern Wisconsin woods kinda ate at most of 'em. Lots of flatheads but all stuck and most are hoodless.
    He'll want to sell whole cars, but I'll consider parting them out for you, at my shop, for whatever we can agree is fair.

    I have dibs on all the early Ford axles, brake parts and a few engines and will be setting some whole cars aside for myself. Other than that, there's some really cool shit.
    I asked if I could part them out to you guys but he just wants to crush out and retire.

    I'll try to get there, tomorrow, if not, I'll make it early next week for some pix.
    I wish you guys could just come up and go in, but that's just how it is.
    I don't want to get rich off of this, so I'll only worry about my time in it...

    DON'T crush me with e-mails and PM's, and make it a fulltime job for me, or I'll change that tune in a hurry.
    I'm happy to be a go-between, but I have a whole other life, so keep that in mind.
    ...and DON'T waste my time or his...
    That's all I ask. He's being cool and allowing me to offer this to you guys on the HAMB, but I'm asking that you don't create any pressure that'll piss him off. He doesn't have the time of day to sit on the phone and tell you all 31 flavors, so just be cool...

    Watch for pix next week.

  11. Do you know if there is any 58-62 GM (yeah, yeah, not "traditional 'hotrod'") stuff in there? Of most interest are the W and Nailhead engines.

    sounds to me the truth be known he;s crushin em because iron is up right now so he'll make more money and less hassle dealin with kool car people to just rent a crusher and smash em and cash in all the chips in one shot!! just my opion and like a$$holes everyone has em!!
     
  19. Or maybe he wants to retire and enjoy life before he dies...
    This fucking yard has been open for 50 years. He's dealt with THOUSANDS of cool car people.
    Buy the whole yard if you want... and don't judge this man.

    His liability insurance went sky high and he can't let people in to pick parts.
    He's not going to pay some employee to go pull a set of $20 valve covers...
    Pay his insurance and maybe he'll keep the cars...

    yes and no... less hastle, for damn sure. more money from crushing, depends on what he wants for shit, and what iron scroungers like us are willing to give him for it.

    I'm NOT going after spacific things for people.

    I want everyone to leave him alone so we can see the pics. Please guys be patient. Otherwise theres no chance.
     
  27. Here's the deal guys...

    I love this junkyard, and it's going to be gone, soon.
    I spent two years learning every car in there. I even went as far as mapping like 100 acres of cars. I had lined-up enough shit to keep me building rods until I die...

    Trouble started last year. About 40% of the cars were on the neighbor's land, and he wanted them off.
    So, Gary had to spend all summer, paying his guys, to put 10lbs of shit in a 5lb bag.

    When I first saw it, after that, I fuckin' puked. Cars that hadn't been disturbed in half a century, and could have been saved, were stacked 3 high and there was not a single road left open.
    That was last fall...

    When I called, yesterday, this was the new story...
    He's backed into a corner for whatever reasons, and needs to clear out.
    It's fucking sad...

    Honestly, as much as I love old cars and this one junkyard especially, I'd like nothing more than to never see it, again.
    I'm offering to go and watch something I care about get destroyed.
    I don't know how far ahead of the crusher I can stay, so if you see something, NEXT WEEK, don't fuck around.

    Alright... I need a tissue...:(

    Later,

    JOE:cool:
