Way back in 2001, when I first got the idea in my head to write about salvage yards, Stewart Criswell & Sons Inc. was the very first yard I ever covered.

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…
