Not a real junkyard but I went to a huge garage sale about 40 minutes south of me. The guy is clearing out his huge barn, garage, storage trailers, and vehicle collections. Clearing out may be a generous term because his prices don’t reflect that, but hey. I happen to see this old GMC/Chevy panel that was converted to a trailer off to my side.

Total shame because the Solar Scoop was rotted and cracked. Still pretty cool though.

Paid $10. It is for a third generation Econoline.

Oh yeah, he happened to stop on a whim at this yard by Santa Cruz.

He found one boogie van and one standard van. The floor mats were in the regular van. The boogie van was completely stripped of all of its goodies. Total shame as it had some good stuff on it in the yard picture. I wish I could score a good third gen that would smog or is a 1975 that is smog exempt. They're all out in the yards. frown

That van trailer is really cool. Great deal on those mats. They are hard to come by.

Oh yeah they are. I flipped them faster than a hot cake. I can now fund the purchase of weather stripping and some small odds and ends I needed for assembly after paint.

A 1974 high top Dodge showed up in a local yard two days ago. I went to check it out today on my lunch. It had some trashed portholes and the interior was pretty rough. Nothing too salvageable in the time I had. But then I saw them.

No cracks or broken tabs. I can clean them up really well and swap some newer 4" Pioneer speakers into them for my van. Very stoked.

This Camaro was in the lot that goes straight to the crusher.
