Default CTC Auto Ranch, old and American boneyard

I came across this place in an article I recently read. It is over 30 acres of Cars and parts from the 50's, 60's and 70's. This boneyard would even buy parts of older cars from other junk yards that were closing.

I haven't spent a lot of time on this site, yet. But I thought that maybe it might be a place for those long lost parts that someone may be looking for. Happy hunting.

Check out this site, it even has an interactive, panoramic view of different parts of the boneyard, which is pretty cool.

John, you will love this place. From the pics I saw, they do not stack anything. Can you imagine ? I would love to take one of the early panel vans.

Neat place, saw lots of firebirds, mustangs, mopar, olds, buick, and other cars. Did not see any Chevelle's. Did see a complete truck for Flash for parts.
Thanks for sharing.

Ok, I want to move a trailer onto the lot and just go to town on everything that the frame is not gone on.

This is perhaps the second best salvage yard I've ever seen. The first being one in Tucson Arizona that had only old GM, two 1974 F-bodies were the newest on that lot. Unfortunately, in Tucson.

Too bad there wasn't a registry for places like this that listed them by state. There has got to be some yards left that aren't completely picked over here in Florida.

I remember the first time I went to Carlisle with my wife. When we pulled into town and I just saw all the cars parked all over the lawns I told my wife this is going to be like a little kid going to Disney Land. For some reason just walking thru a junk yard like that would give me the same feeling, you just have to watch out for the rattlesnakes in Arizona they like taking up residence in those old cars.
