Default Connecticut Mustang salvage yard pictures

I went to a local Mustang Salvage Yard here in Connecticut, Connecticut Mustang in Bridgeport. I need a drive shaft and steering wheel for my 69 Mustang, didnt find what I need but snapped a few pics of some cars he has there. The Yellow 65/66 looks like it was a nice car very recently, still had new front disk brakes, power booster and a few other good parts, I didnt have time to grab them.

And that's why those of in New England must look elsewhere for parts...

Depressing is right.

I wish I snapped a picture of the yellow 65/66, all I took was one of the front disk brakes which I posted. I was told by the junk yard owner that the previous owner of the Yellow 65/66 was going through a divorce and decided to ruin the car rather than let his soon to be ex-wife have it so he drove it into a tree in his yard. Looks like it was in very nicce condition prior to him trashing it.

That front bumper on the 69 Cougar is worth a few $$$. A few other parts as well.

The sad part is I don't see too much that hasn't been picked pretty clean already. The broken back on the '69 vert almost makes me cringe in pain just looking at it.

Man, that '68 coupe (7th photo) took one heck of a hit. I doubt if anyone walked away from that one.
