Jeff in the Junkyard: Classics for Sale

Jeff in the Junkyard: Ray Shook’s Garage

Whenever I make a trip to Georgia either for work or to visit my in-laws, I always try to find another salvage yard to visit beyond the one I’m helping to clear out as a Barn Finds Exclusive. This time, I… more»

Jeff’s Junkyard Finds: 1986 Isuzu Trooper Rescue!

As many of our readers now know, I have a slight addiction to rescuing vehicles from salvage yard-type environments. At last count, of the five projects I own, three of them have literally been pulled from a salvage yard… more»

Jeff in the Junkyard: Eastern Shore Finds

As some of our long-time readers know, I used to spend a fair amount of time stomping around junkyards on the weekends. Well, having a child greatly limits your free time (at least initially, until they can join you),… more»

Jeff Bought A Junkyard Cosworth-Mercedes 190E 2.3-16!

As some of you may have seen, I’ve been hinting that I wanted to find a new project car with four doors. I settled on a 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 as the ideal target, but buying one would mean… more»

Jeff in the Junkyard: Cold and Frozen

Because I value the Barn Finds community, I don’t let some snow and cold get in my way of exploring this nation’s great hidden junkyards. What does slow me down, however, is slipping on a sheet of ice and whacking my… more»

Jeff In The Junkyard: Wintertime Finds

Although I generally loathe winter, it is my preferred season for visiting salvage yards. If the mercury stays above 20 degrees, my flannel-lined work gear keeps up with the colder temps. Plus, this means there are generally no bugs… more»

Jeff in the Junkyard: The Left Behinds

As some of you have likely noticed, it’s been ages since I’ve posted about my junkyard expeditions. Part of this is my fault due to pure laziness – I’ve had the pictures but haven’t felt like I had anything good enough… more»

A few weeks ago, we profiled a craigslist ad about a Vermont salvage yard that was clearing out its old inventory, allowing any visitors brave enough to venture into this isolated stretch of the Green Mountain State to take… more»

Jeff in the Junkyard: Granite State Finds

After taking much of the summer off from junkyarding, I spent some time researching and calling over 25 different salvage yards throughout Maine and New Hampshire over the last few weeks. I haven’t spent much time in those areas,… more»

Jeff In The Junkyard: Back From Vacation!

As you may have noticed, I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from my junkyard trips. Blame it on nice weather and not wanting to spend weekends deep in the woods getting bitten by ticks and scraped by brambles!… more»

Jeff in the Junkyard: Foreign Relations

Even if I told you where this yard was located, you’d be hard-pressed to find it on a map. While somewhat known by junkyard raiders like myself, it’s not a place that advertises and the inventory rarely changes. So,… more»

Jeff In The Junkyard: Digging in the Archives

Due to the summer time activities taking priority over my junkyard excursions, I’m running out of fresh meat. But rest assured, an external hard drive still has a few gems stored away on it, and I’ve begun pulling together… more»

Jeff in the Junkyard: Return to the Forest

As I mentioned a few entries ago, my last junkyard visit provided more than enough fodder for a few weeks’ worth of posts. We’ll revisit this yard in Western Massachusetts for some additional diamonds in the rough, and, as… more»

Jeff in the Junkyard: Memory Lane

I decided to go a bit old-school this week and post some finds from yards I used to visit. I say “used” because they’ve since been cleared of anything remotely interesting and replaced with late-model garbage from the major… more»
