  • the mother lode? (lots of Studebaker content)

    Click on the attached link, then the first set of pics titled "LBR Photos 4-13-2012".

    You'll see 427 pics from a junkyard located north of Quartzite AZ full of classics (truly the middle of nowhere...). Word is the property has been sold and they all must go by August. Too bad, there can't be many more collections of this size left.

    The pictures were posted 3 months ago. I wonder what may have happened since then.

          Picture #22 - looks like a 58 Packard hardtop in front of that one airplane fuselage.

              Thanks. I was too lazy to look at em all. Besides, just makes me sick to think of them meeting an unkind fate.

                          the good news is some of them are stripped saving you lots of time during your restoration!

                          Why are so many engines separated from their bodies?

                            The Red and White 4 Door Wagon is a Provincial (Commander) wagon.

                            Cast iron is worth more than sheet steel if it is separated. The other reason may be that those Cars are gone to the junkyard in the sky, and their engines have not yet.

                              Just did a little research but it was the wrong spot. If it seems to good to be true, well you know the rest.
