The South Florida Automobile Junkyard Memorial Page

     This site exists as a memorial to all of the rare and classic vehicles that have met their unglorious end in our local South Florida junkyards. I've been going to these yards since I was 18 years old, moved to South Florida right out of high school(raised in the DC Metro Area). For whatever the reasons may be, the local yards in this area get some of the most exclusive and rare vehicles. At the time of first implementing this page, the local U-Pull-It had a rust-free and fairly complete late 70s Rolls Royce, (minus engine) and a totally complete mid 80s Maserati Quattroporte Sedan with a DOHC V8. This page will serve as a memorial for these fallen vehicles. Ok, I'm really not this disturbed, but I thought it was funny, and it is kind of sad to see these cars get junked. \ FYI, cameras are not allowed in the junkyard, so all pictures were taken with my phone. (sorry)

- I took a quick look this weekend. Nothing so spectacular, but here are a few pictures I took. In addition to these cars, there were also a couple of Porsche 944s, a 924, an old Celica Supra GTS, and a few 12 cyl Jaguar convertibles. If you get a chance, help me figure out what these cars are...

- I heard through the grape-vine at Pennock's Fiero Forum that there was an 88 TTOP Fiero in the junkyard, so I headed over there and took a few other pictures. Here's what I found from left to right, top to bottom: First (Picture of a Cash 4 Clunkers car), 1958 Chevy 235 Sedan, Fiero V6 4-Speed, 1969 Cadillac Sedan, 69-72 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible, 80s Checker Cab, some kind of caddy, Chevy Chevelle of some sort, no idea, Dodge Polara, Chevy 235 engine from the 58 above, 1975-1976 Bricklin SV-1, 1977-1979 Ford Thunderbird, 1974 Ford Ranchero, 1970-1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

- Had some time, so I stopped by the junkyard to take some pictures this month. This is what they had on the 20th of September. Here's what I found from left to right, top to bottom: 1992 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z 5.7, late 80s Z28 Camaro w/ TPI, 1987 Pontiac GTA TransAm TPI, 1976-1980 Dodge Aspen rear, front, interior, 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis LSE (car was fully loaded w/ all options, and only had 83k miles on it. It was a Cash 4 Clunker's trade-in), 1965-1968 Chrysler Newport Convertible front, interior, don't know, don't know.

- CASH FOR CLUNKERS SPECIAL! - My dad decided to trade in his old Volvo 850 Station Wagon. Unfortunately for him, his Volvo didn't get bad enough fuel economy to count towards a Cash-4-Clunkers Federal credit. He decided to buy a new vehicle anyway. While we're waiting for them to prepare his new car, we took a stroll through the parking lot with the vehicles that had already been turned in for the Cash-4-Clunkers program. Although their engines hadn't been seized yet, all of these vehicles would eventually be destroyed. The manager stated these vehicles would not end up in the junkyard for parts, but immediately crushed. There are several Explorer Sports, a Windstar van, an F-150 pickup, and surprisingly, a V6 Ford Escape.

- Stopped by this weekend and there were some pretty interesting cars this time. Here's what I found from left to right, top to bottom: Volvo P1800, Volvo P1800, 1969 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow I left, right, don't know, 1976-1990 Maserati Quattroporte III V8 front, interior, engine, don't know, don't know, 1985 Fiero GT w/ rare suede and fleece OEM seats, don't know, don't know, don't know, don't know, don't know, 1979-1981 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro

- I've been really busy, wife just had a baby, so I haven't had time to remember or figure out what these cars are. But quick guess from left to right(not sure on the years): late 70s Fiat 124 Spyder, a Datsun 240Z, early 70s Cadillac Eldorado, late 60s Impala Super Sport Coupe, mid 60s Plymouth Valiant Coupe, Ford Galaxy, 60s Lincoln Continental, and absolutely no clue...

- There were a lot of cars this week, but I only took pictures of a few. This week, in order of appearance, a late 70s Alfa Romeo Spyder, a 1965 Volvo 1800S, and a 1979 Ford Pinto Coupe. Also, just for everyone's enjoyment, I also took a picture of a brand new 2008 Honda Ridgeline that had burned to a crisp. That's legendary Honda reliability for you. Other cars worth mentioning that I didn't take pictures of: two BMW 2002s, 1984 Porsche 944 (black), 1985 Porsche 944 (red), late 70s MGB, 1975 Oldsmobile Delta-88 Royale.

- This week, in order of appearance, a 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Sedan, and a 1968 AMC Javelin, a 1978 Buick Regal, a 1975 Lincoln Continental Mark IV and finally, a 1966 Ford Galaxie 500.

- This week, in order of appearance, a 1979 Jaguar Series III XJ-8 Sedan, and a 1974 Pontiac Catalina Coupe 350, a 1966 Chevrolet Corvair 6-cyl Sedan and lastly, a 1981 Jaguar XJS-8 with a small block chevy transplanted into it. There were some other cars worth mentioning, but I didn't take any pictures. A 1985 Porsche 944 5-Speed, a BMW 735 CSi, and another Triumph TR-7.

- In order of appearance, a mid 70s BMW 735i (there were several of these), a Triumph TR-7, and a Triumph TR-6 . There wasn't much else worth mentioning at the yard today. Several new BMWs, Mercedes, and Jaguars.

- In order of appearance, a 70-72 Ford Maverick, and a 1964 W200 Dodge Power-Wagon-6 extended cab pickup truck. The thing that made this pickup of particular interest is that it's a former USAF military vehicle. The original color of the pickup was blue (as can be seen from the inside). It's still complete with all of the badging and markings from the military. Unfortunately, the exterior was repainted. It appeared to me as though this vehicle was decomissioned and donated to a local fire department and then eventually moved to civilian hands (where it ended up like this).

- In order of appearance, a 1967 Ford Mustang, a 1969 Dodge Polara Sedan, and a 64-65 Mercury Comet.

- In order of appearance, a massive 63-64 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, a gargantuan 1972 Chrysler Newport, a 1967 Ford Thunderbird, and finally a 1972 Oldsmobile Delta-88 Convertible.

- In order of appearance, a 64-68 BMW 2002, a vintage VW Meyers Manx, and a 67 or 68 Chrysler Newport. The interior was perfect by the way. The seats looked as if they had never been sat in. The interior door panels looked like they were totally brand new.

- These are definitely some old pictures. I found these on my computer, but they seem to be the first junkyard pictures I've taken. This is a fairly complete 80s Buick Reatta, ashame... I snagged the diagnostic computer and touch-screen monitor from it. Not really sure what was up with the hair in the drivers seat... but I wasn't about to touch it.
