71-73 Boneyard
#1
The fellow I'm Getting my 72 from recalls a junk yard thaat was all Mustangs and mostly 71-73. Hears the info he sent me but said this was in the late 80's and the guy who owned it had probably passed but did have sons.

Ok Mark, here is the name and address of the Mustang junk yard, which is actually his back yard. You have to drive by his house to get back to the cars.
His name is John O'Daniel, 2025 Oak Level Rd., Benton, Ky, 42025. Phone 270-527-7631

Anybody out there close enough to do a drive by?

I'm about 2 1/2 hours away, have you tried to call?

I googled Benton KY and Salvage yard and found this

Spears Body Shop Auto Salvage
2501 Oak Level Road Benton, KY 42025‎
(270) 527-5258

Looks to be in the same neighborhood. I bet if you call they could tell you.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Mr O'Daniel is alive and well. However, he got rid of all the cars and parts he had. Shame!

That's like the story of the some guy in New Hampshire (I think) acres and acres of COOL classics... hemi motors Cudas, RoadRunners ShhhTANGS. I thought I heard the place was for sale, but odd enough FINDING HIM was impossible.

There was a yard I got parts from for The Starsky and Hutch in college. Guy had torinos, cuda's challengers oddly no stangs. Now all is gone. We found his number in a five year old phonebook at the time. Went to the address there was a small garage with used parts sign hanging up by his house. No cars to be seen. He had us get in an old Dodge pickup and drove up the side of the mountain behind the garage. Peaked the top of the hill and cars all over the valley on the other side! Wish it was still there tried looking on google earth in the area and looks like everything is gone!
