Making it in the Classic Car Junkyard Business | CTC Auto Ranch
In 1985 David Williamson and his brother were struggling to make their used car sales business work.
After failing to sell a 1947 Dodge pickup truck multiple times, even going as far as to offer it for as little as $300, they got the bright idea of trying to sell just parts from the truck.
They listed an ad for truck parts in a motor news magazine and what had been an impossible vehicle to sell, became a hot commodity. They ended up selling parts from that old truck for $3,000 and realized there was a lot of money in just selling parts.
This was the modest beginnings of the CTC Auto Ranch, now the largest classic car junkyard in Western Texas. Starting with just 80 cars, they now have over 4,000 classic cars and sell parts all over the world.
