New Pick and Pull in Leominster MA...

Only been open a few months, pretty well organized and well run IMO

Tons of Audi A4s,A6s, 3 series.. a few 3000GTs, most are very intact for now. It is next door to the ABC yard, which is no longer open to public.

Anyone been here yet?

Greenleaf was a branch of LKQ. When I worked over there, we would interchange parts between the leominster yard and LKQ yards on the truck route down south.

You're right, I worked there and have no idea what I'm talking about. This yard (Greenleaf as it was known) was an LKQ yard, ie a "branch" sorry for not clarifying myself better. Thanks for reiterating what i said though.

Actually Jesse you missed one part =)...this was when I started to work there. I started there at the tail end of Ford running it then new owners bought it independantly 3 (or 4, I cant remember) buisnessman from Texas bought it, kept the Greenleaf name..ran it into the ground worse then ford ever did..then LKQ got ahold of it..and your right I couldnt remember exactly what happened but they did keep the Greenleaf name for a while then started the whole "pick and pull" thing back up again..then eventually called it LKQ. I think they're still using the ABC name though?
