There are stories. Myths really, but like all myths there may be a grain of truth. Legends that tucked away in strange places around the world are Jeep junkyards stuffed full of strange machines, Dana 40's and 60's, flat fenders and Jeepsters. Jeep parts piled up like Cheerleaders at state competition. Prices so low they almost beg you to take the treasures away. Strange old farmers with a life long hobby of collecting, but never driving, old Jeeps. War surplus so thick that Jeeps are stacked like cordwood, like fruit falling froma tree in the later summer.
I don't believe these places exist, my friends. But if I knew, I probably wouldn't ever tell you. Not exactly. I'd hint. I'd tell of the time I was in Pashwar, on assignment, and discovered a military dumping ground. Or the time I accidentally took a wrong road in Eastern Colorado, where all the roads look alike, and found a collection. But can't find it again, even after months of searching. But the real treasure, I'd keep to myself.
Geoff I just dispatched "Tiny". He handles all my light work. You will know him when you see him. It would be best to remember the locations quickly before Tiny has to make you remember.
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
Cool Geoff. Actually it's not so sad. You know, in those third world countries, with a little baling wire and part swapping, those things will be up and running in no time if at all possible. Those folks are masters at it.

There is a place just outside Lenhartsville,PA that looks something like that....just not ALL jeeps. Think the name is Donats or something like that. Last time I drove by I saw many jeeps up on the hill. I think they only deal with 4X4's. There was supposedly some kind of Jeep junkyard up in Schuylkill county too. Dont really have any details on that one though. Heard different stories on it. Heard the place was shut down and that alot of it was uh... " inappropriately aquired".
Years ago there was one here in West Michigan, near Sparta. It took me years to find it, but found it I did!
Unfortunately, the owner passed away, and his family just couldn't keep it running. Now his old farmhouse is gone, and the land turned into storage.
He had everything in that lot, and knew Jeeps better than anybody I had ever met. That was many many years ago, but Geoff's pics reminded me of his place.
