Readers' junk: Willys wagons, Edsels found on Pennsylvania junkyard crawl

 

An ear for music and an eye for old cars. When he's not jamming on blues and rock, 47-year-old Greg Platzer, owner of BCR Music & Sound in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, is on the lookout for old cars to photograph. Platzer, an avid photographer, once owned a 1973 Dodge Challenger and is naturally drawn to vintage American iron at old junkyards. Platzer shared some of his recent finds with junkyardlife.

A distinctive grill bar identifies this as a 1955, 1956 or 1957 Chevy dump truck.

Platzer spotted these junked Edsels while taking his daughter to school. They were not for sale.


Salvaged axles were piled high at this unnamed Pennsylvania junkyard.

This black 1966 Lincoln Continental still sheds its 45-year-old factory paint.
