Here's a link to a yard that a buddy tipped me on. Still has some FL cars and parts of interest. Prices look very reasonable. Not sure if they are closing and crushing off the remains, retiring, or what the story is, but there may not be a lot of time left on the clock.

Website is well done and the inventory documented. Too bad all salvage operations aren't this well organized on-line. Hopefully somebody can find some needed parts here.

I sent them an email and they responded immediately. Wish I had known about them earlier.

I sent a buddy on a re-con mission there last week. I guess the story is they aren't closing, just not going to be open to the public after the end of this month. That translates to internet sales only. We did discover that the website is not exactly up to date and they seem to be so busy that they don't have time to actually sell you any parts. Still, I think if you're within reasonable driving distance, there still may be some jewels left in there to pick out.

As I stated earlier, they responded immediately with a message that promised to get back me by last Tuesday. They didn't. Must be very involved in the switch over.

Ray..I have been emailing with the owner over the past week. If things work out I might be going down there next week. PM me if there is anything you want me to ask about for you or pick up for you.

Someone should save that '56 Belvedere hardtop coupe. That's a rare body style these days and it does have an engine.

I wish I could save them all.

I heard from them today.  Just a little later than they promised. Thanks for the offer. I may be there on the 31st to check out an engine.

I sent my buddy to specifically check out that '59 Plymouth wagon. About all he could offer was, "man that thing's rusty". Probably not saveable, probably not a lot of useable parts left on it.

Yard is no longer there.Everything was crushed last winter.I was employed by the owner to strip the last 250 cars so there are a lot of parts saved.You can still email and ask about inventory.
