For nearly 40 years, Dave’s Goldwest Auto Wrecking has been buying and selling wrecked muscle cars in Southern California. Sadly, after all these years, they are closing their doors and are selling off all their inventory and land. They have about 75 project muscle cars up for grabs that need to go. If you’re in the region, we would recommend stopping by, even if it’s just to roam the yard. More information can be found here on Craigslist. Special thanks to Robert M. for tipping us off to this one.
This wrecking yard is full of Camaros, Firebirds, Corvettes, and a few Mustangs. Some of the cars are solid enough to make great projects, while others will be best used as parts cars. At one point, Dave had several yards in California, but as environmental and city laws became stricter, they had to consolidate to just this one yard.
Times are getting hard for salvage yards and there aren’t many left that specialize just in muscle cars, so it’s sad to see ones like this close and lost forever. Hopefully most of the cars can go to new homes instead of the crusher. If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and look at what’s left in the yard before it’s all gone forever.
