For the benefit of the general public, I’m sharing the results of today’s research project, entitled Which Junkyard Will Take My Useless Old Car and What Will They Give Me For It?
There are several places that will take your car if you strip the gas tank off, drain all the fluids, etc.
If you want someone to take it as is, the closest place to Duluth is Calvary Auto & Salvage in the Rice Lake Township (4825 Rice Lake Road | 723-1294).
A little farther away is Chesney Auto Salvage in the Fredenberg Township (6250 Beaver River Road | 721-4874).
Both offered $50 for my 1990 Ford Taurus, on the conditions that I deliver it to them and bring the title.
