The only crushing occurred in January 2007 and it did not include any collector type cars.

Yes, they are still in business and still taking orders. Check earlier for all contact information.

NOTE, this thread started in 2006

Good news is that the price of scrap metal has gone down.

For some reason it made me think of the Seinfeld episode that mentioned a movie, "Cry, Cry Again."

I cried when I heard the tale and saw the pics.

Then when I saw the flood and thought about that, I cried again.

There is more than one way to compound a tragedy, but that is certainly one of them.

Good luck, McBear.

Take care and enjoy (saving) the ride,

I know that was in 2006, but looking at those pictures has made me genuinely sad.

wow, truly some good stuff there. If I were closer I would definitely spend some time there (like days..) W111 stuff is getting increasingly harder to find.
