The biggest scrapyard ever?
« on: December 21, 2008, 13:15:45 PM »
Crazy American guy!!!

Quotes from a mustang forum:
 
Quote
This guy has collected HUNDREDS of acres of cars! NOBODY knows about this place. Its in the middle of nowhere in‚æ‚æ

Nobody knows of this place. Thousands of these classics will go to waste‚æ

There is Hundreds of 64-71 Mutangs. Boss, mach 1, many many convertibles, K codes, fastbacks.. Maybe shelbys?

The owner is crazy. He's always drunk is very hard to deal with. He's in another world. He said he personally DROVE nearly all the cars in a field in the 60's-70 and left them there for dead. Many are rusted beyond repair. But there still many parts cars‚æ

It will take about two weeks of walking 5 hours a day to see all the cars here. Plus many of them are so buried in overgrown trees and prickers there is no way to see them. I seen a dozen complete 392 hemi cars‚æ.

He is 70 years old and when he dies or goes fully blind (he is almost blind) The junkyard will be taken over by the state and over 20,000 classic cars will be destroyed..


Here‚‚žÂs the complete story: http://www.mustangforums.com/forum/classic-mustang-general-discussion/498652-largest-mustang-junkyard-nobody-knows-of-is-crushing-everything.html]http://www.mustangforums.com/forum/classic...everything.html

20,000 cars.
365 days in a year.
=55 years @ 1 a day

So to have personaly driven every one in the 60's 70's he would have had to drive 2.74 different cars each and every day for 20 years....

i would be suprised if any of them body shells are worth saving, that inviroment is gotta be the worst place to leave a car!
few parts might be ok but even engine blocks would have damage.
yes they might be classics but i would suggest they are all ready lost.

The 20,000 number might be a bit high, I agree. But even if the real number is 2000 cars it‚‚žÂs still a lot of cars‚æ

I agree, most of the cars looked like they were lost a long time ago. But if it‚‚žÂs true most of the cars were driven in to what used to be a field, and left to die it‚‚žÂs sad to think of all the parts that‚‚žÂs now lost.

If he‚‚žÂd stored the good cars properly, and dismantled the dead ones as he received/bought them. He‚‚žÂd be sitting on a fortune now, instead of a lot of old scrap iron...

And what‚‚žÂs the point of doing something like this? If he‚‚žÂs not stolen the cars, he must have paid a small fortune for all of them, and then left them for dead?
