The attached pictures from 1988 show a junkyard that my car buddy, Tom Kitchen, and I were able to buy some neat cars out of. I had a rollback wrecker back then that made it very easy to drag the cars out.
This yard was located in West Dayton, Ohio, and had more convertibles than any I was ever in. Ernie, the owner, was at a point that he would not sell any parts off the cars, so Tom and I bought four complete cars. Tom even got a 1964 Ford Fairlane “K code” Sport Coupe with factory four-speed. I fondly remember a 1962 Thunderbird parts car with factory air and a 1966 Fairlane that I bought from the yard.
By the early ’90s, the yard was cleaned out and gone.
