My brother and I went back to this amazing vintage car yard and Mike found all the side glass he required to convert his 1964 Ford Econoline van to an all window van. We found more vintage cars that we had missed on our first visit a few weeks before this one. This yard just baffles the brain. There are a number of very odd and rare cars in there. Many of the cars are easy to miss because they are deep in the bush. A wonderful day spent checking out some long lost vintage cars laid to rest (in peace). Cheers.

Wow George this is incredible! Glad you went back and took more pictures. Just think how these cars were at one time new cars and enjoyed by many people and families.

Are they available for sale or is this just a dumping ground? Amazing! Cheers!

Mario, the cars and parts are for sale. The two brothers Doug and John are carrying on the torch of their father that started the yard in the very early 1960's. My brother Mike just won the big lottery when he found a first generation Ford Econoline van with ALL the side glass to make it a full glass van, which is kind of rare and now valuable. We had a great day enjoying these gems of the past. All these photos from the first and second part represent just a very small portion of the countless vintage cars and trucks that are buried there. Cheers.

That's good the cars and parts are for sale. I was wondering about that.

Do they actually have a list of the cars and years on the lot or do you just have to walk around? Looks like most have been stripped of parts. Cheers.

Mario, they do not have a list but the folks that run it have half an idea of where the cars are. You could spend days in there with no effort. I found three Edsels (two 58's and one 59), a 50's bath tub Nash, a 50's British Jowett, a late 50's British Ford Zodiac and some other rare cars there. My brother and I were like kids in a candy store. Cheers.

That's so amazing and incredible! I'm glad your brother got the glass for his van there. That was some find.

Winter is great to go there all the green brush is down and you can see the cars better. Great pictures George! Cheers.

I'm impressed George, wow...being able to identify cars from partial remains. You should work for a CSI unit. You'd be great taking body parts and figuring out the who's DNA it is.

Hey Rob, what are you up to these days. Still thinking about getting a new old car? Good shopping friend. Mario

Oh Mario..I'm in to roller coasters now. I find a nice car and my hopes get up and then it's either a scam or I'm too late for the party and I go crashing down. I was or am hoping to find an C2 as my last chance. Everything I find is other half way around the world or priced out of this world.

Just had a run in with a scammer....that is always fun. Needed me to wire 50% down payment today..to hold car I offered to come bring cash to see the car and the seller said he had a buyer that could pay today,

Hmmmmm, I sure miss the old days of honest car sales. Oh wait....let me rethink that.

So until the good Lord sends me one He has picked for me, I'll just keep drooling over others rides.

Life is good though, car or no car. It's what we already have we should be grateful for, not miserable for the things we don't have.

Live life, love and bless others. Rob

So George.....you're into Roller Coasters now....I just happen to own the one in Coney Island that I'm looking to sell. Just wire me a lot of money and I'll mail you the deed! You don't even have to fly out to NY.

A C2 Wow! 63 to 67 my favorite years! Ever since the show Route 66 which ran from 1960 to 1964 I always loved the Vette. The Last year TV show had the new 63 and then a 64 Model.

Hard to find but they're around. If I see one for sale in NY I'll let you know. We have lots of car shows and classic car dealers here on Long Island.

Well take care and chin up. Thanksgiving around the corner and lots of Turkey! May God Bless us everyone! Mario

Oh Lord Mario......$110,000.00 !!!!!!!!!!!!!! It may be in Arizona and even close but I will need you to send me a check for $100,000.00 and I will happily pay the balance.

I'm a bottom feeder Mario....$40-50K.

I'm not allowed to sit at the table with these prices.

I know my place in life, and with a $110K car, would it just become a garage trophy or a trailer queen, which means I need to buy a trailer, and a truck to pull the trailer and now with that added in....I think this Corvette will be $250K.

So it's better if you just send me a blank check and I will take care of filling in the amount and I promise to send you a Christmas wish.

No not a card...maybe a Christmas wish on this forum.

I'm not heartless after all, just penniless.

And the search goes on....... Rob

Rob, I have always taken an interest in vintage car spotting. Started as a punk kid and I still love it as an old fart. Glad you folks enjoyed the vintage yard journey. Cheers.

Great spotting and naming of cars George! You did an awesome job with that.

You and your brother must have had a great time walking around not knowing what you will find.

It's a treasure trove of old cars indeed! Cheers!

Only fellow gear heads would know the thrill of being in an antique wrecking yard. It has always been a real trip back in time for me. You look around and wonder about who owned all these cars and what they did with them. Why they gave up on them and when they gave up on them. You have to love old cars to know this and feel this way. Cheers.
