This is how I view junkyards.  I consider scrapyards a different critter,
though, more in the recycling tagging schemes than anything, as that tends
to be where cars that were once in the junkyard go when the junkyards
decide it's cheaper use the space for a more complete unit than keep the
existing one on the lot.
