Wrecks-We meet by Accident!

Indianapolis-Wrecks-We meet by Accident!

Anyone that lived in the Indianapolis area in the 1970's, 80's or 90's has looked for either a used car part, used engine or transmission or anything else that would have come out of a junk yards has been to Wrecks north of Indianapolis in Whitestown, Indiana.  Their motto was "Wrecks-We meet by Accident!"  I always thought it was the way a professional junk yard should be ran.  It seemed like that had at least one of every junk car possible in the junk yard.  They had a knowledgeable stuff behind the counter to help you like any current New Auto Parts store would today, the only difference was that you were buying quality used auto parts.  I am not really sure what happened to Wrecks, but they have been out of business for some time.  Today I drove by there on I-65 and you can still see the sign some distance off of the road.  I took a picture though it didn't turn out very good.  Here is the picture. 
I am sorry for the lack of clarity in the picture, but kind of tells you how desolate the place is now.  I am not really sure what happened.  Maybe the increase of the price of junk cars put them out of business, or maybe it was just changing times, or maybe it was all of the Cash for Cars Indianapolis Junk car buyers.  Either way, I will always remember Wrecks.  If you have a junk car to get rid of click on the link Indianapolis Junk Cars or just give us a call at (317) 454-3202 and we will give you a free quote on what we will pay for your junk car or truck.
