Muscle Car Salvage yard

I know most of you probably know of this guy already but I spent the better part of a day down at this salvage yard this last week in Wymore Nebraska.

Johns Muscle Car Salavage was pretty much unbelivable. I wish I would have took more pictures, but to say he has chevlle stuff is a big understatement, every part I was looking for plus quite a few more that i wasnt went home with me for a very fair price. If you guys are in need of any parts you cant find elsewhere you need to check this place out.

Anyway I will post some pictures when I can but trust me its worth the trip if you like old chevlles, and you can bare to see all of them sitting in a junkyard that could have been somthing.

Re: Muscle Car Salvage yard

What is the condition of the sheet metal in southern Nebraska? Is there such a thing as rust free metal, or do you have to head further south. I need some clean doors.

Re: Muscle Car Salvage yard

What are the prices like?

What did you buy and how much was it?

Where are those pictures?

New oil is cheaper than new parts

If you are talking about the one right off of I-385 it's not really a junk yard. The place is called Classic Cars of South Carolina. See website below. That guy sells the cars, both complete and projects. His prices are high.
