I used to loose time just wandering around in the local scrap yard, ideas swimming around in my mind for what and how I could re-purpose things. They had everything there, from complete golf carts, auto parts, scuba tanks, medical equipment and everything in between. They even had spent ammunition cartridges of all calibers that reloaders would buy. I always wondered where those came from...
The county did an eminent domain on their property to construct a freeway.
The scrap yard was forced to close. The county lost a great place, so very sad indeed.
It was there for some 40 years.
