You've haven't been there other than somewhat recently then. Just a couple years ago - I'd say 2003 or so - there was something insane like 7 Merkurs there at once! :shock: Over the course of the ~8 years that I've been going there, I've seen at least 30 Merkurs come and go. No doubt, that's slowed to trickle over the last couple years.

Just think, were it not for the existance of the junkyard, this might have occurred in one of the nearby neighbor's front yards instead...

Yes, I can see it now..."K. Hovnanian invites you to live the good life in your adult community townhome at Four Wheezins in bucolic Pine Brook, NJ. Just seconds from Rt 46 and minutes from Rt 80, Four Wheezins at Pine Brook will take you back to days gone by as you fish for two-headed trout in a babbling brook (of motor oil and antifreeze). Relax on your balcony and enjoy the refreshing breeze created by tractor-trailers speeding along Rt46 at all hours of the night. And if you listen closely, you can almost hear grandpa's Model T, chugging and wheezing along historic Old Bloomfield Ave. No wait, that's actually grandpa chugging and wheezing because he's got lung cancer from living just 48" above a toxic dump! Act now, and you can live out your increasingly shorter lives at Four Wheezins at Pine Brook starting at $749,900 for a one bedroom unit. Special Bonus: instead of a car in every garage, at Four Wheezins, there's a car UNDER every garage."
I'll be 65 in about 8 years. Think it'll be ready by then?

Wonder if there's any truth to the rumor that now GI's want to sell out to Lowes or Walmart?

Montville's Planning Board will hear the application of G.I. Auto Salvage for the rezoning of their property on Bloomfield Avenue from Industrial Zoning to Age-Restricted Housing or possible retail use.

The meeting begins at 7:30 PM. The application and Concept Plans are on file in the land use office at the munipal building and may be viewed during office hours.


Perhaps I should stage a "Save the Junkyard" rally! :bounce

Looks like the town doesn't want a Lowes/Wal-mart/Costco type business on the site, and is favoring housing....

...but seeing as how the property owner was finding housing a difficult proposition, this only spells good news for the continuance of the junkyard.

Save the junkyard!!! :lol:

Nope, it's long gone. It lived a "junkyard life" longer than most though - it was there about a year-and-a-half before meeting it's inevitable fate with the crusher. No Merkurs to be found there at all now.
