Cohort Pic(k)s Of The Day: ’70s – ’80s Vintage Iron At The Junkyard

It’s been a while since we caught up with the junkyard visits that canadiancatgreen uploads at the Cohort. With his finds being quite plentiful, for today I decided to highlight mostly American/Canadian iron from the ’70s-’80s era. To begin the proceedings, this Ford LTD. Why first? Mostly because there’s a nice shot of the interior as well.

There it is! If you’re fed up with the everpresent gray and black plastics of today’s interiors, this nice shade of green (in every corner and crevice!) should provide some respite.

Let’s move on to GM. Here’s a perennial favorite, a B-body Caprice. Kind of like Hotel California or Stairway to Heaven, a bit overplayed and ubiquitous. But still, a nice and cohesive design that I never truly get tired of seeing, rust warts and all.

Don’t worry, I’m not leaving Mopar fans aside in this post. Here’s what was uploaded as an ’86 Plymouth Caravelle, a Canadian Chrysler model. Of course, I knew this shape as a Dodge Diplomat, and most of the ones I saw in my California days were fleet units. Regardless of badge, quite a memory.

Let’s jump to something slightly different with this early ’80s Oldsmobile Toronado.

And sticking to Olds, here’s a ’84 Cutlass Supreme, in that burgundy I remember so well from the 1980s.

Let’s jump to a true Canadian offering with this ’81 Pontiac Parisienne, a few years before the moniker made its way to the US.

A 1980s Monte Carlo. Or what’s left of it, anyway.

The snow in this shot is a sign that this 1970s Dodge Charger is one of the most recent uploads.

Back to Dearborn products with this ’78 Lincoln, with what looks like one too many spares in the trunk. And with this, I’ll close this brief excursion into Canadian junkyards, where vintage iron from the Big Three never seems to disappear.
