About

Restorers and builders of vintage rides are welcome to take a walk and view all the possibilities.

John Blacketer, the owner, started John’s Salvage Co. in 1975 with a 1949 Mercury and a plot of land. When he first opened, the business was filled with mechanic work, welding, roadside services, scrapping metal, and selling off parts. He worked out of a shell of a building weathering the Texas weather year round.

Now, he maintains a 6,000-sq-ft workshop. He doesn’t do roadside services anymore and closes on Sundays. Cows used to roam the yard helping to keep the grass, but now cats roam the yard. Kittens are usually available for free.

If you require the fitting of parts purchased from the yard or buy any of the restored cars on site, then please speak to the relevant department.
