I needed a fix, and what better place than my fav junkyard.
Though my last couple of visits, I have noticed the prices have hiked up some. I dont know how they can justify their price rise as most of their junk is outdoors rusting or rotting away!
I look at it as an opportunity to really search for bits and pieces that I need to use to do my 'redos', like hardware and unusual pieces . I have her stumped for prices when I roll up with a bucket full of 'stuff'! She doesnt even know what half of it is, and makes up the price on the spot!

This junkyard is set on about 5 acres of land, filled to the brim! Each time I go, I make a wishlist of the pieces I like, then I drag her around to get prices.Some of the little things I gather, I just make a small pile along my travels, no one wants my junk, so it is pretty safe!
It is hard work fossicking through mounds of junk, but I call it 'research', it's my job afterall!
I usually spend about two hours there, I dont need to see the cars and parts, otherwise it could take 3-4 hours!
Today i bought a set of doors, some thingimies, and some rusty bits, interesting huh!
Ive shown a couple of photos before, but here's some more to drool over!
Hope you had your 'fix' today, in the junking way!

  3. awhhh Bennett Rd, first time I went there was about 25 yrs back & haha, a lot of that junk from then is still there today.
    Becareful when you`re fossicking, lots of snakes hiding there. Their prices have been ridiculous for years, sometimes she sells at Blacktown Trash & Treasure and ups the prices even more.Vey friendly person she is, not!

  4. OMG this is seriously the best junk yard I have ever seen in my life! Take me there!

  5. Isn't it great to have that one special place to go junk? Even better when it's still a diamond in the rough and undiscovered. I just came across your blog tonight, love it!
    All the best,
