Abandoned Junkyard near Buffalo, NY.
The owner died several years ago. He was a grumpy old hermit that was hard
to deal with. Video includes a peek of the shack and adjacent motor home he
lived in.......5 star living @ it's finest...........lol.
Most of the repair tools & equip. are still on site, it's amazing the place
hasn't been ransacked by now.

Will it Run? Bonus: Live Sounds of Dead Cars
I had a request for some live engine sounds with no music...This is the
same Dodge 230 c.i. flat head 6 chassis running with 2 different bodies on
it. Actually runs pretty good, considering it's been sitting since the
60's, and is still running its original plugs, wires, cap, etc. Thanks for
checking it out.
Slideshow Part2 Kaufdorf car graveyard September 2008
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.

Junkyard Cars 3
Junkyard Cars 3. I believe this to be an abandoned lot of cars that a
forest has grown up around. Most of these have probobly been here for 30-40
years. I believe someone does own it but I heard that he's willing to sell-
if you can get them out of the trees. Many of the older ones are pretty
much unsalvageable, though. BTW: Located 3 miles up the road from New
Boston, Il., which is by the Mississippi River.

tires filled with air and she made some creepy noise! :-)
