If any members that live in this area could tell me where the good junkyard, pick a part places are, I'd appreciate it. I'm in Annapolis and I think all the people are too rich around here to need a junkyard. Thanks alot.
You might want to get hold of someone at the Maryland Chevelle Club and ask them where the one is they have pictured on their web site, it looks like it has a bunch of stuff, but there was no mention of location. Maybe a big secret ? Check it out: http://www.clark.net/pub/chevelle/raiders.htm

Brandywine has become too commercial, they wont let you go wandering around any more and besides, they strip and crush everything real quickly, so the chances of finding anything old are pretty slim.

I hear there are a couple of good junk yards in Calvert county off of rt 4. I haven't been there but will get you the location and email it to you. I am in St Mary's county and there are a couple of yards that I visit. One is a part of Brandwine but you can walk around in the yard. This is on Rt 235 near hwy 247. I spied a 69 shell w/ frame there last week. Another, and my favorite is further down in the county near Great Mills. Located off of Flat Iron Road.
Yes, Recyclers, used to be Pee Wees. They have a lot of mid 70s to mid 80s A, G, and F bodies there. I also see an early Chevelle there occasionally. The only yard that I have ever been in that has a published price list for parts. There is also a guy there that specializes in trans. He salvages everything that is of value or interest. I will be there this morning looking for a heater box for my 78 Elky. It will be $40 and will include everything that is attached (I read remotely attached). Mike
I'm the newsletter editor of the Maryland Chevelle Club's newsletter and the author of that story, "Raiders of the Lost Yard". I purposely omitted the location of that junk yard because I did not want to turn the story into an advertisement. Since it was published, I've had TONS of requests about it's location.
The yard is called Mar's Auto Parts and is located in Northeast, MD in Cecil County, not far from where the Mid-Atlantic Chevelle Show/ACES Northeast Regional will be held. It is not far off exit 100 off I-95. There is another excellent junk yard across the street called Albrights Auto Parts.
Both of these yards are FULL of late 70's/early 80's stuff, but there are a few GM A-bodies here and there. Their inventories change VERY frequently. Both yards are "pick-your-own". Albrights is VERY reasonable, Mar's is fair, but DON'T *****OFF THE OWNER! I don't have their business cards handy for phone #'s, etc... E-mail me if you want any more particulars.
