Junkyards near PV?

I know this might be a strange question, but does anyone know of any junkyards in or near PV that would have a decent selection of 50's, 60's, and 70's cars? Not looking for volkswagons, but older american brands. Old cars are my hobby, and I would love to see what the area has to offer. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Perhaps you can spot them in Google Maps or Earth; I'm sure they have a distinctive look from above.

That's a great idea. Thanks! I will definately take a look. Hoping that someone living in the area might have driven by, or would possibly know of some locations that would be worth checking out.

I've seen a junkyard from the air as we have landed in PV. So if you use google maybe try looking around the airport area.

The main road thru Ixtapa has a couple of them past the town on the left as you head north. There is also one in Bucerias, but I don't know the exact location of that one right now.

The junk yard which specialises in American cars actually imports most of their parts.

Sioux,

There are a couple that are like pick-your-parts in the US. You actually go to the car and remove the parts you need. They have an inventory of what cars they have.

There is one junk yard on the road to Ixtapa called Los Hermanos. The place is pretty well known by mechanics as the place to get American car parts. Besides what he gets from local cars, Peter, the owner goes to San Diego and brings back lots of parts. He will get parts for people that they request, but generally not right away.

Thank you for this! I've been trying to remember the name of Peter's company! We've been there many times but I don't have his card. Do you have his phone number? I've got two vehicles that he may want the parts from.
