Kaufdorf car graveyard - VW Split Export 1952
Kaufdorf nach der Räumung im Feb 2010. VW Brezelkäfer Export 1952 ohne
An old split bug from 1952 is falling apart in the famous car graveyard in
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 intend to clear it by court order
later this year. 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 last month 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
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.
