PostSubject: Winternationals Swap Meet and Belton Wrench-A-Part pics   Sun Dec 12, 2010 12:24 am

Good day today! My Dad tagged along and I brought my 8-year-old as well. Ran up to Belton, about 30 miles north of my house, and went both to the Belton Wrench-A-Part salvage yard and to the Winternationals Swap Meet.

We went to the salvage yard first. Misty broke one of the climate control knobs off the '01 Grand Prix, and as usual I had a long list of misc stuff for the wagon and Cutlass. Belton is unique in the fact that many of it's cars come out of the Fort Hood military base in Killeen, the next town over. You have to watch for rust, as soldiers come from all over the country and bring the cars with them. I've even see Alaska plates out in the yard.

Here's the salvage yard pics:

Check out this old Ford. TONS of parts in good shape. Engine and trans still in it. Great dash, great chrome. Hope it gets well parted before it's date with the crusher.






Got some nice lock knobs off this Malibu


Well picked over Chevy ragtop


Caprices





Lone Longroof...someone was just finishing pulling the engine



White over maroon Custom Cruiser. Made me miss my old car



Olds Dynamic 88



How about a BIG old Caddy?


This Corvair was CLEAN. Stick too. Hood was taken off and laying in front of it. TONS of parts, great chrome, zero rust.






Big Caddy, perfect rear bumper laying in the dirt behind it



63 Chevy Biscayne. Very straight and still lots of parts


How about a Roadmaster with a green octopus holding money painted on it....ok then...



And a Roadmaster that had burned....notice the melted tail lights?


G-Bodies



This was what was left of a Monte Carlo SS...poor thing!




How about a 1980 Buick Century Fastback Turbo Coupe??? Had a perfect metal hood with Turbo bulge that I HOPE someone yanks for a Regal, also a super rare rear spoiler. I snagged a set a perfect seat chrome trim off this car for my Cutlass. Rare car!







Look at this beast



And I SO want the Olds 455 out of this car for my Cutlass!!!


I'll put the Swap Meet Pics in the next thread.

Walking out there were two older guys stripping parts off the 50's Ford. Was really glad to see that. Would be a real shame for that to get crushed....Ford or not...

That Turbo Coupe hood was only $30 plus a $2 core charge. I'm kicking myself for not grabbing it. Think I could have Craigslisted it and made a profit. They used the same hood on the Regal T-types.
