Classic Car Junk yards

Classic Junk Yard

Classic Car Junk Yards are scattered across the USA and are becoming a thing of the past. The classic cars that are located in junk yards are becoming picked over as time goes on. The days of finding a restorable GTO, Chevelle Super Sport, Mustang or a Mopar Muscle car in a junk yard are almost over. There are some junk yards that have many old cars that are near complete, but most of these classic cars are 4 door sedans and not the desirable muscle cars. Muscle cars found in junkyards are usually just left over shells. There is one web site that has a tour of over 3000 Classic Cars. This junkyard is one of the largest old car junkyards and is located in the North Georgia Mountains. Another good junk yard for antique and classic parts is Desert Valley Auto Parts in Arizona.

1970 Pontiac GTO

Above is a very rare classic car still in a junkyard (as of 2007). This is an original 1970 Pontiac GTO 455 Car with rare options, including power windows. This rare classic car has been robbed of the entire power-train and probably has severe rust on the underside from sitting directly on the ground for so many years.


1965 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport

Above is 1965 Impala Super Sport with a large tree growing up through the radiator core support. In fact this car is right behind the GTO above. Right behind this one is the hull of a 1967 Chevelle SS.


1970 Dodge Challenger RT

Here is a 1973 Dodge Challenger RT. This is a rare classic car that still has many parts left on it. It appears that it might have been a 340 car.


1979 Ford Mustang

Here is a 1969 Mustang Mach 1. This classic car looks like it was in pretty good shape when it was placed in the yard years ago. It's a shame to see it going to waste.


Many of the old cars resting in Junk Yards have been there quite some time. Some have trees growing up through them. One 1956 Buick that I was photographing had raccoons nesting in it. The 1968 Dodge Super Bee shown on the right has a large Sweet gum tree growing out of the engine compartment. Some of the cars are totally hidden from vegetation. One 1967 GTO resting in the same yard was squashed by a large tree.

The photos in the yard tour not only show a collection of cars, but they also tell us quite a bit history by the contents of the old cars, bumper stickers and license plates. Some cars from the 1960's and 1970's have Barbie dolls and other toys still laying in the seats. The photo on the right is from a City Of Cartersville Dodge truck. Perhaps it was common for vehicle of that vintage to have a Georgia Certified City logo on it.

Over the years many of these classic cars start missing parts. Some parts get sold , but many are stolen. The photo to the right is an early 1970s Dodge Challenger. These photos were taken at Old Car City USA. The first photo was taken in November 2002 and the second photo was taken in December 2003. During this time the yard owner had no one working from him pulling parts. After taking pictures in this yard twice, I have seen many parts disappear. Most of the parts are emblems and other small items.
