Default Junkyard Visit in MD

Atti isn't the only one hanging out in junkyards this week. (OK, maybe that sounds worse than I mean, but you get the drift.) Tuesday, I visited a yard here in MD on the advice of others who said there were "lots of ambulances and hearses there".

Of course, "lots" means not many. And when I asked about "ambulances", three different guys all piped up that they had "just crushed one over the weekend". But here's some photos:
1) '72 S&S hearse, some body panels good
2) downsize Superior limousine hearse, good glass
3) '62 Superior Pontiac landau, good back door if needed
4) '74 Superior Cadillac hightop, good windshield and maybe good rear bumper, '50's hearse buried in the overgrowth next to it, couldn't see enough of it to tell and I forgot my hedge clippers
5) '65 and '67 Cadillac coupes, decent front body parts
6) 80's Buick, good body if you had that model hearse

If interested in anything, let me know and I'll give you the info. U pull or they pull.

Neat to see what is in that yard Steve. Does the '62 Poncho have intact rear loading door glass?

Yes, the door glass is good. It also has the right "Royale" corner glass but not the left.

Looks a little sad to see these rare cars meeting their demise, doesn't it? In all probability, some of the cars may have been easy restorations, when they arrived.

.
That has to be so neat to wonder into a salvage yard and see pro-cars sitting about even if they are pretty much gone.

It's a little neat and a little sad. They weren't antiques when they got there, they were just old cars. The only good thing is if someone gets some parts off of them that are usable to restore their procars. Then they become organ donors.

I could use the inside plastic trim corners from the downsized Superior if you are headed back there any time soon. I just hope to finish my 1978 before I become an organ donor myself..
