Jennifer Hanauer Lumpkin

By some providence, the only show Gene went to with his Golden Jubilee before he passed happened to be one attended by Betsy Blume, granddaughter of IH designer Ted Ornas.

B&L Auto Salvage Has Got the Good, Old, and Odd
Joe Sharretts


For our first of many salvage yard profiles, I have decided to begin with B&L Auto Salvage located in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. This is not one of those yards that you will see all over the Internet, or advertising in every magazine. It is a very small yard located way off the beaten path known only by the locals, but there you will find a great collection of unusual pieces. B&L was started back in 1960. It is currently owned and … Read the rest of the story…
