There are some great cars there. A few years ago a “forgotten” junk yard down the street from me had 5 or 6 Packard wagons. I can remember one of the workers getting one of them running. The owner, a former cabinet maker, had apparently bought the Packards with the intention of doing the woodwork himself. He was very fond of his Packards. When he bought the yard it had a 1953 Carribean which they restored and it took a 2nd place trophy in it’s first show. Sadly, he passed away and most of the vintage cars were crushed.
