My favorite “venue” in San Francisco, Ace Auto Dismantling, now has it’s own website: aceautosf.com
That’s right, not only is Ace Auto an excellent place to junk your car, find that part you have been searching for or even buy a car, but it has been home to many amazing events over the years, including: Power Tool Drag Races, Cyclecide Bike Rodeo, Mongoloid/Cookie Mongoloid, Attaboy & Burke and many more. Ace owner Junkman Bill has been helping out Bay Area artists for years and has provided precious obtainium to art organizations like Survival Research Labs (SRL), SEEMEN, Burning Man and so on. In fact Ace is even an employer of artists and many of our good friends have worked there including Chicken John and Cyclecide’s own Jarico Reese.
For you geeks that want get rid of all your old computer crap, Ace Auto also does computer recycling, so bring it all down and let Junkman take care of it for you.
With all the great stuff that Junkman Bill has done with Ace Auto, it’s no wonder it was voted “Best Junkyard for Artists” by SF Bay Guardian’s for their Best of the Bay 1998 issue (the same issue that featured Laughing Squid as the “Best Pipeline to the Underground”).
