Old cars in junk yards #2
I recently found this yard and took almost 500 pictures of just the "cool"
stuff, convertibles, wagons, and 2 door hardtops. I have never seen so many
complete cars in a junk yard before. Some still even have their hubcaps on
yet! The story is that it has been closed and untouched for the last 20
years! I know I am partial to Chevys and '58's in particular, but I am
trying to take more non-biased pictures for all to enjoy. Subscribe to me
if you want to see more of the pictures from this yard and others to come,
I will be putting more slideshows together soon.

BARN FIND! 1959 chevy rare?
Car has been off the road for about 15 years and I saved it from the
junkyard. my 59 chevy, it's a project car. only 20,760 two door station
wagons were made in 59 probably less then half are still on the road. small
block 1981 chevy engine- TH400 trans- 72 pontiac rear end. hope to be done
but next year "praying to finish". I known some of the stuff on the car
doesn't match so work with me here.
This car has been off the road since 1995 that's what the last owner said.
it was a rust bucket but after 10 years of slow body work around it. So
other than that I took it off his hands and hope to restore it.
the rare part; in 1959 GM made over 1.4 million chevrolets not including
pick ups, over 180,000 2-door impala, over 70,000 impala convertibles,
close to 25,000 el camino, and the lowers productive car made in 59 the
2-door station wagon/delivery wagons only 20,760 made. If all of the chevys
made in 59 were lined up today, you would have to see 100 before u see a
two door wagon
1957 Chevy 2 door wagon
This 1957 Chevy was found in Vancouver Canada in1995 then shipped to Sydney
Australia in 1997
The restoration took 4 years to complete with lots of help from good
friends and family
