    Default salvage yard

    I believe Mr Dean is still around and still runs his salvage yard. Every time I go to Rolla I look for his truck , that is the best way to catch him. The large amphibian has been gone awhile now. He told me he used to take his grand kids for rides in it. Mostly 5 tons and a couple of rough M151's in his yard now. 1 gamma-goat.

    I talked to the guy at the local surplus store just South/West of Rolla less than two years ago. ** I NEVER VERIFIED THE FOLLOWING** He told me that the owner of the yard actually had TWO yards. One was the one facing the main road that you could see where the large amphibian used to be parked and another 110 acres of vehicles that were off the beaten path. He continued to tell me that in place of a fence on the acreage, he had surplus vehicles parked side by side to form a wall around the place.

    While my sons were going to Rolla I spent quite a lot of time trying to catch up with Dean. The only response I ever go was a flyer for a GOER he sent to me after I left a message with my information on his door.

    I sure would like to find out where this other place is before it all winds up going to a scrapper because he's not a spring chicken.

    I was just going to post about this yard because my wife and I saw it yesterday on our way from Rolla to Ft. Leonard Wood. We spent the night in Rolla because it had a Choice Hotel which I have a ton of points for so we got a free night. I wanted to stop in but we were already running late to go get the M923. Has anyone recently dealt with this guy? I am curious because if it was worth it we would take another trip up that way to check out what he has.

    I bought a m416 trailer from Dean 20+ years ago. he had piles of m151/m416 wheels with tires of diferent tread depth. like was said earlier he sandwich cut the m151's, brilliant idea. went back 10-12 years ago and he offered me a job but by then i was married and was being paid way too much for what i was doing. would have been my idea of a dream job. just remebered how i heard of dean, a fella in marquand mo.(my home town) had a m4 high speed tractor we all called "tuckers tank"(fellas name was tucker) and he told me where he got it. dean still remebered tucker and still had a m4 out back. some time in there dean sold some ground north of his house to walmart and his employee was telling me he made a buttload of money. he was reputed to be very well connected in jeff city, to the point he was pulled over by mo sthp and when they saw who it was they apoligized and sent him on his way.
