Well, here is the holy grail of cool old snot and rust to spend the day rummaging around in, I would love to dig around here for a few days to be honest.
I spent over an hour adding photos from around the internet but- I am pooped, so this is enough for you lot to get ya heads round, enjoy.
There’s probably not one of us reading this who hasn’t at one point dreamed (or still does dream) about owning a salvage yard. The possibilities for vehicular mayhem and resurrection are just about endless, and you’d have plenty of places to stash your project cars under the guise of a legitimate business. Unfortunately, not too many salvage yards left have much old stuff, but L&L Classic Auto in Wendell, Idaho, does, and the owner is retiring and putting up the business and all of its 80-acre inventory for sale. From the seller’s description:
80 Acre Auto Salvage in Idaho. The largest in the North West, with an inventory of over 8,000 cars. The owner is ready to retire. Built from the ground up, this yard is one of, if not the oldest, largest continually operated yard. It is a piece of American history. Mostly domestic vehicles with a sprinkle of others. Located in Wendell, Idaho, there is plenty of room for expansion. Give us a call; we would love to tell you more. Or better yet, come view it for yourself. 2 miles north of Wendell, it is located on a main highway and only 3 miles off of the freeway. We sell cars and parts all over the world. Probably only 75 percent of this yard is actually inventoried, since it was started in the 60′s. This place needs an energetic car lover that could update the inventory and incorporate a website to capitalize on global sells. Someone who wants to save history, not crush it!
