Farm Find

Field of Dreams

As a teen in the 1970s, I loved walking through the junkyards and seeing all the old cars. There is something special about unrestored cars - they are 100% original, and to me seem more historic.

When I heard about a gentleman in North Central Washington who has a few cars on his farm, I jumped at the chance to see his collection. What a treat!

I posted these pictures for everyone like me who appreciates old iron.

You'd be lucky in the UK to be able to do this now, as Health and Safety laws make people afraid of insurance claims. Fantastic find.

Dang Smart man, owning mostly Fords.

If he had chevys & dodges they would have already rusted into the ground.

I have owned the 63 Lark and the 61 Galaxy (Hardtop). Turned the Galaxy into a dragster. Gave the Lark to my Grandfather.

fords chevys dodges plymouths,they are all great! i hope they all get saved, i would try to buy one but i have 11 cars already! i know i saved quite a few from the crusher,what i dont get is why are people crushing all these pieces of history for the steel when they have aircraft carriers and old battle ships that they sink when they dont need them anymore? theres so much steel in those why dont they get the steel from those?!!!!

Hello Dr. John,

I am looking for a older 31 to 49 old 1.5 or 2 ton farm to market truck to refurbish for our family farm. Will eventually use for a farm to market truck at local farmers market. Please contact if you know of any.


Thank you, Robert
