1956 Chevrolet 

This is the last of the “before” pictures from the wrecking yard that burned. Not sure if it really matters if this one survived or not. It looks like it was pretty much dead anyway.


1965-76 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow I


Rolls built the Silver Shadow I from 1965 to 1976, and the Silver Shadow II from 1977 to 1980. The only thing that identifies this one as a Silver Shadow I, is the grille slots below the headlights.

Stay tuned to find out if she survived the fire.

1957 Mercury Monterey

Another one from the yard that burned. Isaac used his psychic detective skills to ID this one. If you look closely, you can see the shadow of an M left by a long lost Monterey badge on the fender. With that clue he found a match on Wikipedia.

Did it survive the fire? Stay tuned for the after posts.

1948 – 51 Dodge Pickup


Isaac and I found this old Dodge a couple months ago in a wrecking yard full of cool old cars. This is one of a few photos we shot before the owner shooed us away. Last week there was a huge fire out there. It is reported that 50% of the yard was burned. We haven’t been back to see if the Dodge survived.

A couple of news articles about the fire:
