Went to the local pull apart to find some parts i needed for my trucks an my dads truck. I thought to myself this is where mine couldve been but i saved it from going here.. It is sad to see some cool ol ford rangers an bronks go to waste..

Having them in a salvage yard is a necessity. However, them going in a crusher is a waste and a shame.

wow, a junkyard with a gravel lot? around here we have high grass, muddy ruts, wasps and snakes to "surprize" you. i too have seen alot i would like to rescue and get back on the road. but i can barley afford to keep my own going, so i'll just have to keep doing that.

The gravel surprised me too, at the nearest Pick n Pull it's all sand, which is annoying as hell.

We've got a place here called "Wrench N Go". They've got gravel, and everything's up on stands.

our salvage yards are full of snakes, grass, mud, sand and a pond, occasionally with a car or truck

I was at the yard awhile back and found the 86 Ranger I bought in 94 and drove to 98

As you can see we got mud under ours on bad days.

ive never found one of my own vehicles in a junkyard, but i did come across a car mom had years after we traded it. a '77 4 door comet (the mercury version of the maverick) i did see my '88 ranger in town a few years after trading it, funny thing is, it still had the extra set of rims i left in the bed.
