I've been wanting to go to the junkyard for quite some time now. Unfortunately, it always seems to get put off for something seemingly more important every time I get the chance. Well, today, my girlfriend managed to pull me away from my slumber and get me motivated to go out to the junkyard.
She always seems to be a lot more motivated to go than I am. I guess this is because I always prepare myself to be automatically let down, finding nothing but useless late-model cars and Japanese junk rusting away. However, I always love going since I love just looking at old cars and wondering what their "story" is and how this became their final resting point.
Today was a pretty good day for old iron. I came across a plethora of big blocks: a wasted 4 barrel Caddy coupe, an awesome Olds 98 4 barrel big-block and an old 460 that resided in a big Linc. Another pretty cool surprise was what was left of an ancient Jeep pick-up truck in the corner of the Dodge/Chrysler section. Let's just say that I feel WAY better about my rust after looking at this thing. Even one of my oddball favorites made an appearance in the form of a 74 Olds Omega 2 door. It even had solid quarters and straight sheet metal everywhere.
Anyway, enjoy the pictures.
