Dick’s Auto Wrecking, 1942

This post was originally published on this site

Dick’s Auto Wrecking yard in Clarksburg, West Virginia in January 1942. Most of those cars seem to be from between mid 1920s to mid 1930s. This photo being 1942 makes the age of the scrapped cars only relatively not that old. Today we see cars on the road of 7-20 year old that don’t look ready for the wrecker.
