Neat Scrap Yard Find

Post by Gleaner » September 18th, 2012, 8:01 pm

I had a neat find at a scrap yard in Wichita, Kansas today. Walking past a huge pile of scrap looking around and there on the pile was a NOS model A head! It had nuts on the studs for the water pump and you could clearly see it had never been on an engine. Also found one side of a rear bumper in the pile. I got them bought for 25 cent per pound.

So you can still find something once in a while at the junk yard yet. My Nephew was with me and I told him 30 years ago you could go junk yard shopping at every town.
