Throwback - Flat Top Bob (Owens Salvage part 1)

On a couple of our many trips to Texas we have stopped to visit our good friends at Owens Salvage in Wellington, TX. Flat Top Bob and his family are great hosts and showed us around their place and some of their friends' places, as you will see all very cool places to visit. Here are some images from our 2nd trip back in 2009.

Delbert had the old dealership filled with some neat collection of car to say the least.
