As much as we all would hope to find a yard filled with nothing but the desirable parts of automotive history that span between 1930 and the present, the more likely scenario is that between the gems you will find the everyday, utilitarian vehicles, the workhorses. We’ve already seen station wagons and sedans aplenty, but if you thought Brian was going to do a junkyard crawl without seeing a work truck or two, you were wrong. The sheer spread of trucks at Gates is surprising, from a medium-duty Ford that looks just about ready to see the road to ragged-out Ford trucks that have pretty much made the transition from “vehicle” to “art”. These were vehicles people relied on for their livelihood for years, right up until something went out and the vehicle was deemed unworthy of a repair, or until the decision was made to upgrade to the newer and better deal. That’s the way it goes, though…what was once new becomes old, unloved and cast off.
