junkyard

A few years back, I paid a visit to one of the most interesting salvage yards I’ve ever been to. Not only was the experience a lot of fun, but I also learned a great deal about a make that is rarely seen—the Packard. Of course here in Ottsville, Pennsylvania, Packards are a very common sight, because one man, Pete Grave, has been collecting them for the past 30 years. He has an extreme fondness for this make, because he … Read the rest of the story…

The Eventer

On a recent trip through southern Illinois, I passed through the small town of Tamaroa and noticed an old truck in the parking lot at Collins Truck Parts. It’s not surprising to find old trucks in that part of the state, and many of them are still hard at work every day. I was driving by at 55 mph and couldn’t figure out what make it was. Curiosity got the better of me, so I turned around and headed back … Read the rest of the story…

junkyard

This month, I highlight a New Jersey salvage yard that, to date for me, has been the mother lode of salvaged vintage trucks. Most yards that I visit have a handful of trucks mixed in with the vintage cars, but this yard is the exact opposite. Williams Auto & Truck Parts of Pitts Grove, New Jersey, has the vintage cars beat four to one. In all honesty, I originally paid a visit to see the 200 or so vintage cars, which … Read the rest of the story…

Over the course of its long and storied history, Jeep has manufactured a number of unique pickup trucks. These include the Forward Control series (1956-1965), the long-lived J-Trucks (1962-1988), based on the original Wagoneer (both already collectible to a degree), a pickup version of the Kaiser Jeep and American Motors Corporation (AMC) Commando (1966-1973), and the CJ-7-based Scrambler (1976-1986) that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles continues to make noise about bringing back. But one stood out as quite possibly having the greatest … Read the rest of the story…
