No offense, but I call people like you scrap happy.

That's awfully good stiff to be scrapping. People buy that stuff.

Talking "Scrap Happy"

Back in my younger dayze I shopped mostly in junkyards as I'd find the best un molested things there and cheaper too .

Yabut, you live here in southern California, where guys USED to be able to go into a boneyard and get a completely rust-free '40s - '70s body. I sold my '68 Skylark a few years back, but I could have picked up a complete running '70 Electra 225 with a 455 and a 400 THM and AC for $1400 at the Pick-Your-Part in Sunland (now called LKQ) that I could have stuffed into it for cheap...and then scrapped the rest and been money ahead. Since Joe took the classic pre-'73 cars to Memory Lane, and then that folded, those deals are only found in a back lot of some house where you can see it from the street, if you're lucky.

Memory Lane closed? That's too bad. Last time I was there was in '95. It was a fun place to go searching for goodies.

Red face 'Scrap Happy'

Memory Lane was interesting, they moved it to a tiny place in Wilmington and it folded up shortly thereafter .

Our '67 ~ '72 trucks were always notorious rusters, I looked at some cabs but LKQ said $700.00 ! and here in So. Cal. good cabs were maybe $500 at that time so I passed .

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

They did have a yard just west of the old Pick Your Part yard for a number of years. I got cut off and wrecked my '68 Skylark in '04, and managed to find all the parts I needed to fix it there. Later, there was only the Wilmington yard, and IIRC, the CAL EPA closed them down (could be wrong- my memory is nowhere near perfect) like they do to any wrecking yard where some dummy spills some antifreeze or oil on the ground. Maybe they just sold it, as that was probably some pretty valuable real estate.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

Wasn't there a place called Chevy Only or something like that on Tuxford / Roscoe? I bought a pair of Vette rally wheels for the rear of my Camaro there. Probably about 1976 or so.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

can't find the pictures I took, but there was a huge fire over there on lomita by the bone yards about 6-8 years ago.. I was southbound on wilmington ave heading to one of our stations where it tees into lomita.. don't know if memory lane was already gone or possibly that did it in..

I reaally miss alco truck on alameda just past the henry ford rd split.. they've been gone for a long time, recycling center for transients now, gotta dodge all the bicycles and shopping carts in that area

one by one, all going away for stacks and stacks of econo boxes and minivans

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

Steeveedee, I got cut off too, but I didn't wreck any of my cars. I just went out to the shop and pouted.

Yup, Marv's Chevy Only. They're long gone, too.

That's misdemeanor material. The more I miss, the meaner I get.

Post Junkyards Gone

AHA ! I never knew about the fire .

The really old P-A-P on the West end of Lomita, near Memory Lane's last location survived the fire but was closed down after LKQ did their thing buying up every self service junkyard they could and closing down the competition illegally .

That white Blazer picture looks good enough for a sales brochure .
