Some very very very cool classic car junkyards. Take a look!!

I found these while looking around and I wanted to share these because maybe you guys might find some use in them. Maybe a needed part or a wanted project.

First, www.azclassics.com

Second, www.dvap.com

These two don't crush at all. If a car is so parted out its almost to the bare chassis, then they will finish dismantling it and put the parts on a rack or shelf and put another classic in it's place. They have thousands of cars, you will spend hours maybe even days browsing around the sites.

third, www.roblins.net

These guys almost crushed the entire yard when steel reached record highs, but the final decision was to save them. Not a single one was destroyed. They have an old '55 Chevy stock car from waaaay back in the day and a Hudson Hornet.


I just hope you guys get some great use out of these yards, they are really neat. All they do for me is, after looking for awhile, they just teach me that I'll never come close to owning one of these cool rides. Oh well, I'll dream, a guy can dream can't he?

I work about 1 mile from the Deer Valley yard. It is pretty cool but very picked over as far as anything useable and valuable. On the other hand, last time I was there they had a sweet black on black 440x6 challenger for $26K...

Bill, for shame. Every car is fixable until they are murdered by a car crusher or hit by a big rig then dropped on RR Tracks, or well...you get my point. Almost every car in these yards is a Restoration or a Hot Rod just waiting to be saved.

Re: Some very very very cool classic car junkyards. Take a look!!

These are ones where I draw the line-not even my cousin Joey can fix these and he has done some INCREDIBLE work.

If these were mine, I'd part them out myself and put a new classic in their place:

www.frenchlakeautoparts.com

this is my favorite yard to just wander around in. used to live 4 miles from there and if i got bored on a satruday afternoon, i'd go there and just walk around looking at stuff.
there's 100+acres of cars ranging from the 1910's to 2009. all the cool old stuff is in the back section where the tuner kids looking for a new air dam for their Honda won't screw around with them.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
