Default Junk Yard stories...

I don't know about the rest of you but when I see a salvage/junk yard, I see a virtual gold mine of parts. Walking through these Junk/salvage yards, I can't help but wonder how some of these vehicles got there and wonder how someone couldn't and wouldn't salvage anything off the vehicle that went in there. Oh I did find these at a salvage yard:

This is a 1987 Ford Ranger XLT, if you look in the background a bit of the 2nd photo you'll see a 1997 XLT Cab.

Here's a couple of engines I found. This is a 302 out of an 87 Mustang.

This my friends is the crown jewel of a salvage/junk yard finds. A VINTAGE 351 Windsor with number's matching.
Too bad they wouldn't pull it.

Here's what that 351 Came out of that I found: a 1983 Econoline Van.
That would make the 351 swap go alot smoother than normal, because it's already configured for tight spaces.

As you can tell from the date, I found these a long time ago.
What all photos do you guys have of your salvage/junk yard finds?
SOLD: 2004 Ford Ranger Edge 3.0 V6 5 speed
