Junkyard Find: Fun With Snow and Forklifts

junkyard find fun with snow and forklifts

After Denver got hit with a big snowstorm a couple weeks back, it seems that one of the employees at my local self-service yard couldn’t resist placing this addition to inventory atop an eight-foot heap of plowed snow. By now, the car has probably melted down to a more accessible level, but I’m sure some desperate parts hunter climbed the mountain when it was at full height.

    Reminds me of one thing I really like when I had my SUV : when shopping for Christmas or going to a restaurant and there's no parking anywhere, I parked it on a snow pile as there was a convenient free space there. :D

    MANY MANY years ago there was an airman we knew who had a Fiat 128 as his daily drive. There were huge mountains of snow at Pease AFB (part of the old SAC with FB-111 and KC-135 stationed there, now an ANG base) as they tend to build up in parking lots during the winter months across the United States. A group of us carried his 128 and put it on the top of the parking lot snow mountain, much like in the picture above. When he came out a few hours later he was not amused - but we did carry it back down for him. That car weighed nothing!

    "...but I’m sure some desperate parts hunter climbed the mountain when it was at full height." Do you really think someone would be cavalier enough to do that? (Myself, I would wait for the sun fire to melt the snow...)

    LOL Muralee, It looks like a Cavalier or one of its J car derivatives.
