Some pictures of cars at a junkyard in the middle of IL. I found it while going to a state college, he had a ton of Ford LTD stuff I needed. This is my tribute to some fine cars that once ruled the road. I did NOT pick this song originaly when I put this together (it was a 70s R&B song), since it was not authorized, YouTube had a limited amount of songs to choose from. This was the best I could find.
A trip to my favorite privatly owned junk yard.
I went with a friend of mine to this junk yard. Took tha camora along.
While he looked for some parts I decided to look around. Almost evertthing
hear is for sale. some stuff though is part of his own private collection.
If you see something oyu like or need comments are welcome. He collected
this stuff for many years. More vids are coing to come of this place as i
find time to make them.
My first trip to a classic car junkyard in search of parts led me to make
this video. Over 70% of the pictures on this video are pictures I took of
the junkyard that I visited that day. The junkyard is over in Vancouver Wa.
near my hometown of Portland Oregon.
Slideshow Part5 Kaufdorf car graveyard Spring 2010
Kaufdorf Autofriedhof - Switzerland's vintage car graveyard.
It was the biggest graveyard of its kind in Europe -- a vast metal jungle
of more than 1,000 rusting vintage cars including forgotten British
Wolseleys, "sit up and beg" Ford Prefects, rotting Porsches and even the
wreck of a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.
The collection of decaying old-timers, which go back to the late-1920s,
sits in makeshift corrugated iron garages and among trees on the edge of
Kaufdorf some 10 miles south of Switzerland's capital Bern.
After surviving for 75 years, the authorities have declared that the
collection is an environmental hazard and decided to clear it by court
order. But the plan has provoked uproar among concerned Kaufdorf locals and
more than just a few other Swiss residents. A campaign to preserve the site
was started when an open day was held. The organisers expected about 50
people to attend, but 10,000 turned up. Franz Messerli, whose father
founded the car cemetery, said: "We never expected such interest. Our aim
is to preserve it for posterity as a national work of art."
Mr Messerli's father, Walter, opened what was originally intended as a
vehicle breaker's yard in 1933. A part-time racing driver and scrap-metal
dealer, he was fascinated by cars and even taught himself to be a mechanic.
At its peak, his collection numbered about 2,000 vehicles.
FORD We are family
A parade of forgotten Ford land barges from the late 60's and 70's. Many
of us fondly remember climbing into a huge Country Squire, LTD, or spacious
midsize Thunderbird for the family road trip. These 2.5 ton battle wagons
didnt fold up like tin foil when hit, like a new Accord or bounce you to
death like a new front wheel drive "family sedan". Most are now gone, but
not forgotten, we all remember the rumble of their 460 V-8 powerplants that
could acually tow a travel trailer.
A old car graveyard
((COMMENT AND RATE)) ---- Me and my buddy was cutting out trees to
make trails and came along all this in the woods
Classic Car Graveyard Part 1
Im sorry to those of you that are wondering but I cant give out the
location. the owner wont sell much and what he wants wayyy too much for the
ones he would sell. Hopefully a lot of them will be saved some day though.
thanks for watching!
Classic Car Graveyard Part 2
Note* At the end it says the wrong song, i had to change it. The rest of
the pictures i took of these neglected classics that have been rusting away
for years, it's a shame to see these cars rotting away, Its not too late
for most of them to be saved. Comment!
Old cars in junk yards #4
This is yet another slide show of the pictures I took at a yard I recently
found, where I took almost 500 pictures of just the "cool" stuff,
convertibles, wagons, and 2 door hardtops. I have never seen so many
complete cars in a junk yard before. Some still even have their hubcaps on
yet! The story is that it has been closed and untouched for the last 20
years! I know I am partial to Chevys and '58's in particular, but I am
trying to take more non-biased pictures for all to enjoy. Subscribe to me
if you want to see more of the pictures from this yard and others to come,
I will be putting more slideshows together soon. Music by Jerry Reed.
Vintage Car Graveyard
Spot on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, which has about 30 cars
lining its bank. Reason? I'm going with Erosion Prevention, Old Junk
Yard, or maybe just a random activity.
