It’s with some sadness that I learned this week about the downsizing at @allamericanclassicsinc - a great working yard that I’ve only been to once but which I’d been meaning to revisit. All American is *NOT CLOSING* - they’re just reducing their footprint - so I’ll still get the chance, but they are going down from 20 acres to 5. AAC faces a problem that almost all old-school yards anywhere near urban centers are facing, though it’s more acute in some places than others. The growth of urban areas - particularly here on the west coast, has pushed far beyond the boundaries that were common when the yards were founded. AAC is a modern yard - founded in 1989 on what had been a dairy farm out in Vancouver, Wa. At that time about 480,000 people lived in Portland, Ore., about 15 miles away. Today almost 650,000 people live in Portland. As PDX has grown, so have its suburbs - placing development ever closer to AAC and making land more valuable (and therefore property taxes higher). One reason why modern salvage yards are high-turn is that it’s just hard to justify a car sitting for 20 years - a car that is not yielding parts is not earning. That’s okay if costs are low, but most old-school salvage yards are caught in the bind of having to meet increasing costs while trying to provide that rare part only needed once in a blue moon. Hence, most modern yards are high turn - which wastes alot of esoterica, because nobody knows it’s there and there isn’t enough time in six weeks to pull what you might need if a yard is halfway across the country. We’re lucky to have places like AAC, so even though I’m sad I won’t get to revisit it as it was, it’ll still be there helping people keep older cars (including 1962 #Chevy #Impala hardtops, like this one) on the road - AAC is doing what it presumably needs to do to thrive. The population in places like Portland is only going to go up - as will the spread of urban areas, so patronize and visit these businesses if you can.

Junkyard Jane. Dirty, decayed and discarded, she waits for a kind, artistic soul to rescue her from a fate worse than decomposition: the trash compactor. I fit that description (artsy and kind) but sadly, Jane would not have fit in my suitcase. Months later and thousands of miles away, I think about her still.

Went with my husband to one of those U-Pull-It car parts #junkyards today to get parts for the #Jeep. I have always wanted to go to one. It was not as exciting as I had hoped, but as I am easily amused, especially with junky places, I had a great time exploring.
I think I was hoping to see more interesting cars, but can you agree that the design of modern cars, in general, is boring af? Apparently there is another junkyard nearby that has older cars my husband has promised to take me to because he knows how to treat a lady, lol. 🚗🚘
What I wasn't prepared for was the realization that a lot of these vehicles had been in car crashes that probably changed peoples' lives. I saw a few that had crushed windows pushed outward, like a head hit. - Our vehicles become an important part of us. A lot of life us spent in vehicles. I didn't think I would be affected by looking at junker cars other than as photo ops, so that was a weird empath experience. 🔮
If I pushed that aside, some things gave me a giggle like all the #scenttrees still hanging around rearview mirrors. I've always wanted to do a photo essay on what and why people hang stuff up there. It's personal, like what things do you put on your fridge doors. This "New Car Scent" was too funny. 🌲🌲
Two cars stood out: the 1988 Toyota MR2 with the orange glitter paint with majestic bird. What stories does that car have, right? - The Camero was a pretty pearlescent lavender that reminded me of eyeshadow I had in the 90s (wannabe goth raver!)
Look at that custom box! My dream is to "soup up" an old family station wagon (with wood paneling!) and put a ridiculous amount of speakers in it, because that's just stupid, and that's exactly how I like it. 🔊🔊🔊🎛️📻
Husband got his parts and that was my day. ;) Oh, and those little wagons with the mismatched wheels made me squeal, lol. #upullit #LKQ #mechanichusband #cars #junkcars #junkyard #easilyamused
