Where Chargers and Challengers go to Die - Inside Stevens Performance salvage yard.

Stephens Performance salvage yard is located in Anderson, Alabama, right on the border between Nashville, Tennessee, and Birmingham. The rumor is that it is the largest Mopar wrecking yard in the world, and after seeing the sheer number of carcasses, and hiking for five hours to see it all, we were convinced.

Mr. Stephens started the yard in 1975 with one 1968 Dodge Super Bee that he accidentally crashed into a telephone pole. As he parted that car out, he learned the salvage business and the yard only grew from there. Stephens Performance is broken up into three yards. The main yard is broken up into three large sections for A, B, and E-bodies with the largest being the B-body section. As you go back, the yards get smaller. The second yard has the body styles broken down by row, and includes all of the yards' C-bodies. The smallest yard, the furthest back, is predominantly overflow of B-bodies that don't fit in the first two sections. Making for one of the largest Mopar Salvage Yards in the world. This isn’t a hoarder’s operation; all of these parts are for sale. Take a look.

This 1969 Charger has many usable parts, and a chicken-wire grille.
