Stan's Junkyard

What's left of a VW Bus.

Chris and I met my brother John out at Stan's Junkyard in Waterloo, WI this weekend.

Stan's is only open one day a week, Saturday. They open at 10:00AM close for lunch at 12:00 noon and re-open again from 1:00PM-4:00PM.

As you can imagine that doesn't give folks much time to browse. We hit the majority of the yard in about an hour and forty-five minutes. Our only goal was taking pictures. Had we been picking parts we wouldn't have been able to see much.

There is a large variety from the 40's, 50's, 60's, right on up to the 90's. The big three are represented well (Chryslers, GMs, Fords) and surpisingly we saw a few Hudsons, Packards, and Nash.

Unfortunately the majority are nearly beyond saving. Weather and scavengers have taken a toll on most of this lot.

I'd like to go back when the weather is more pleasant. Although, I was happy with the effect the snow provided in some of my shots. More photos on Flickr
