Utahs Last Wrecking Yard Closing – David Conwill @Hemmings

Advertisements

As it seems to be the case either side of the pond breakers/wrecking yards are going the way of drag strips and other motoring icons. The decline is generally being caused by the value of the property that they inhabit or general nimbyism.

Read David Conwill’s article at Hemmings documenting the demise of the last yard in Utah.

It’s a sad state of affairs that is hitting the affordable end of the hobby hard.

  1. One man and his Mustang – UK – I'm just a man with a Classic 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe and an ever increasing collection of car detailing products to keep it clean. When I first started this blog this is what I wrote: "I had bought a project car that had been neglected, set fire to, rusted and abused. As a result of all that the car needed a bare metal strip down, a nut and bolt restoration." Four and a half years later the car was completed, on the road and shown at the UK's premier Classic Car Show, everything that was done to my car is documented here. I now have the privilege to drive one of America's most recognised cars and a true Icon, the Ford Mustang. I'm still sane after the blood, sweat and tears, so would I do it again? Oh yes!

    Sad news.
