Crushing Cars

Frequently on Sunday morings I go to the local wrecking yard and look around. I know the manager and even though they are closed he lets me stroll up and down the rows of cars. They are crushing cars more and more frequently as the price of steel goes up. Anything with a blue "X" has a short life. Just thought I'd show you some pictures of some of the Mustangs.

I hate to see them crushed. They can never come back after the crush.

he's been working on that vert off and on for 3-4 years. How complete was it? I am anxious to see it driving around.

Bruce knows his stuff pretty well. He put in my AC in the CS and did some other stuff to my car. He is a good guy.

He said it was going out the door to the owner (no engine, trans, or interior) this week.

Seeing this topic made me start thinking about something. I have never asked only on here if they may know where a 1961 Ford Starliner is?? My dad has been looking for one for some time now and I didn't know if any of you have seen any in the junkyard or if anyone knows a person with one for sale.

Scott,
That wouldn't happen to be the wrecking yard in Pearsonville is it?

Looks like I need to make a trip south (after compiling a decent list of where to visit) to document all the details I can collect. Nor Cal has kept me busy but should check out some other areas it seems. (Doing Colorado later this year possible and part of AZ)

You`de think they could auction off those Mustangs that are going to be crushed. Are they worth more as scrap iron?

And is the manager a guy named DJ? He was very nice but I tell you, I would never do business there again with old man Pearson....he was the rudest person I ever met in my life. (I hear that he died last year anyhow) I bought a rear end out of a hearse from him for my ambulance, and he was extremely rude and took that giant forklift of his and dumped the axle in the back of my truck very hard and then scraped the forks out, damaging my tailgate top edge. I almost got my arm caught under the axle as he dropped it. I hear his mother is as mean as he was!
However they do have a great wrecking yard....!

You'd think you cold reuse some of the glass at least. I know sometimes glass pieces are hard to find.

Donna,

You and I talked on the phone about the Personville yard last July. It was a warm summer night in the desert and I was drinking vodka and orange juice...then I ran out of OJ so just switched to vodka (seemed like a reasonable thing to do at the time). Don't remember much of our conversation after that but I'm sure I was brilliant and insightful...right?

Anyway, Mr. Pearson (the old lady's son) is dead. And the old lady doesn't show up out there much anymore. D.J. runs the day-to-day ops.
