The Junk Yard is a way of life for a few individuals

Misgen’s Auto Parts in Ellendale, is a prime example of more than just a junk yard or salvage yard. It even used to  be called Misgen’s Salvage. Back in the late 90s, they changed the name to Misgen’s Auto Parts. Misgen’s is a family operated business that was started in 1973 by current owner, Jim Misgen, his mom and dad, Audrey and Frances.

In 1972 this family was contracted by the government to “get the country cleaned up”. It all started going from door to door and asking everyone if they had any old cars to get rid of, and then the crew would go and pick up the cars, trucks or whatever it may be, and drop them off at the junk yard.

Approximately one year and 900 cars later Jim had to make a life decision whether to go to college or stay home and build the business. “That was an easy decision,” Misgen said. “I’ll stay home and work.”

The business has changed immensely over the years. They started out just buying and crushing cars, and selling a few parts, too. In 1988, they installed the computer system and that changed how they managed the cars when they arrived. They would enter the vehicle identification number, or VIN, and then manually enter all of the parts that were usable on it as well. It was a time-consuming task, but made it more efficient when dealing with customers wanting certain parts.
