    I'll be posting photos of wagons I've seen in wrecking yards or other places.

    This first photo was taken in Saskatchewan, can't remember the town. Lot's of wagons in this photo including 3 -59 Chevy's, all different models.

    The next photos are from a yard in Peace River, Alberta. I took these 1 1/2 years ago, and I've been told that everything was crushed this past spring. Nothing left.

    This was an English car, A Standard, and when I opened the door, that old English leather smell wafted out.

    Well not exactly junkyard pic's, but shots of a couple of parts cars I have had recently, a yellow 1979 Sunbird Wagon, found in a Cemetery's maint area. Actually a very rare car, only 1200 made. But definatly rusted out beyond saving.
    And a Blue 78 Sunbird Wagon, bought for the buitiful interior. No engine or trans, rus right on the edge of being savable, but I ran out of room, and someone wanted the rear 1/4's.

    Yeah, here in the Manitoba prairies too, lots of small JYs with old iron worthy of some TLC.

    HandyAndy and I went down to the Southwest corner of North Dakota and saw farmers lining up generations of all the family cars they ever owned! Beautiful countryside and lots of WOW factor. (y)

    All 3 were different models too. And the 61 beside them was a wagon.

    'Drive' along the highway using Google Earth to find it.
