When i did the article for Musclecar review mag a number of years ago (when Tom Shaw was editor) myself and friend Murphy Allen used to find the best yards in the hills of central and east tennessee,,and some were in extreme southern Kentucky. we ran across a few in northern Georgia too.The photo i shot of Murphy standing there in front of choice cars stacked six tall was at a yard in Jamestown, TN,,old man must have had at LEAST 3 thousand cars there.I had never seen so many stacked on top each other.Another set of photos in that article was from a yard near knoxville,,off highway 11W north,,,in a little town called Blaine,,i think it was.At the top of a mountain,,there were at least a thousand cars,,GTO's,Mustangs,SS Novas,big block Caprices(too many to count),,and one rare as hell 68 R-code Torino Fastback,,VERY clean car,the engine to it was in a wrecker in the area we were told.Atlanta plant supposedly built 49 of them for one day,,then switched over to the 69 models.Crossville Tenn. also had an interesting yard,,but i believe it has been sold out. I can go on and on about the stuff we found and the articles in magazines on us,,I guess the most recent good find was a 428 CJ engine complete but apart, I found in a 70 Merc full-size laying inside the car and trunk.Found it this past winter in Scottsburg Indiana,,the Q-code breather was in the trunk,,weathered but very good condition. CobraJet web site confirms it as a 70 "Q" breather.I don't know how many of those old line yards are still around in Tennessee,,I would be interested myself if anyone reading this is in that area and can verify.We still have one yard in Ky. that has some good stuff in it,,near lexington,,but we just can;t catch the guy there anymore in forever it seems,,and all the cars are still sitting.Rusting.
