Re: Abandoned, neglected square body trucks rotting away...

If I had land I'd absolutely be a hoarder. I'd buy old trucks and line them up and walk around and look at them.

Re: Abandoned, neglected square body trucks rotting away...

Frustrating to see all these parts and I can't beg, borrow or steal parts for my project. I had begun to think squares were all gone.

Re: Abandoned, neglected square body trucks rotting away...

Off the main highway all you can see designating the entrance to thebyard is this transmission case bolted to the top of a post-used to be painted flourescent pink so you can easily see it-faded now.

The entrance is uphill and through a gate then levels off for anout an 1/8th of a mile before actually getting to the yard....which covers about 80 acres and has between 3500-4500 squares at any one time. The owner told me he's totally turned over his truck incentory 3 times since the early 1990's! So that makes close to 15,000 trucks have met their end days in this old country salvage yard!

Re: Abandoned, neglected square body trucks rotting away...

I do somewhere...I'll dig them up. Most country guys onlynpick those trucks clean for drivers doors and 3/4 and 1-ton running gear parts since they are still popular in rural farm communities as 4x4 toys
