Default Re: Junkyard Memories

Back in the early '70's we had a junkyard in Calif. that was full of 1957 Chevy's, seems we were there every other week-end getting parts.
That yard disappeared decades ago when the City past a law, deciding in their great wisdom that junkyards were an eyesore, funny I don't remember voting on that one.
The yard may be long gone, but the car still remains with us.

I've read your post a couple of times and I believe this is what you're saying.

The bottle you took was full?

Another yard had a dog on a chain, there was a arc of area worn to dirt that looked to be the limit of the chain--- the dog purposefully walked 3 foot short of the limit of the chain
