Ford Motor company owns MOST of the auto recycling in the USA under different names...
As Spock would say with one eyebrow arched skeptically high...
A web search reveals to me 2 instances of "Ford" buying or having yards/sold to them by a buisness. 1 blog from early 2001 & a buisness article from 1999. So yep, there is a factoid of truth to the above claim. It would fit with Ford's desire to utilize recycled materials in their products.
