Lost History - California Junkyards, Part 2

Last month I put together a sampler of the brightest stars I ever found languishing in an East Bay Area self-service junkyard (excuse me, "auto recycling center"). This time, let's take a look at some of the best cars I've come across at a yard in the North Bay. Please don't ask me about where to find them, because all of these cars are now scrap metal.

1961 Mercury Meteor 800

1964 Mercury Monterey
1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza convertible

1965 Plymouth Fury wagon

1966 Ford Galaxie

1972 Ford Pinto Squire

1976 Ford Pinto Squire V6

1976 Plymouth Arrow

1979 Chevrolet Chevette
1983 Chevrolet Citation X-11

1983 Pontiac 6000 LE coupe

1983-87 Renault Alliance
1984 Peugeot 505 wagon

1986 Pontiac 6000 STE

1989 Volvo 780 Bertone


  1. That Pontiac 86' 6000STE still there? I'm from PerĂº and i want to restore mine

    1. I'm fascinated that there's a Pontiac 6000 STE in Peru. Unfortunately the picture was taken in 2009 so that car is long gone. I spent several hours taking parts off of that exact car. If you need parts now, there is currently a 1986 STE in a junkyard in California.

      You can probably request someone local to the area to pull parts and ship them to you.
