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.
Route 66 Dust Bowl relics
On a vacation drive accross the U.S., I found lots of cool old cars sitting
in fields. These I found abandoned off the old mother road, 66. Could they
be old broken down, old dust bowl depression era cars? California or bust?
that busted? Like the jalopy the Joed's drove in the movie "The Grapes of
Rath"? Unbelieveable what is still out there... waiting to be found when
you goof up and take a wrong turn off the beaten path in a small town along
Route 66. I once got lost in Colorado and found a 57 Chevy convertible, and
it was cheap so I bought it.
Ghost of Old Iron
A lifetime collection, or rather an accumulation of, unrestored old antique
cars. They are slowly rusting away in a small town in northeast Oklahoma.
Memory Lane Junkyard
This place I came across down the road from me has a ton of old cars. These
are just a few sitting in the woods. There is about 200+ cars, but these
are just 1/4 of the ones sitting in the woods. There is atleast 100 sitting
in the woods, the rest are behind a chainlink fence behind a house.
I call it memory lane junkyard because as you are going down the road, you
begin to see cars on the side of the road and up in the woods. They start
out old like cars from the 30's, then the farther down the road you go, the
newer they get, 30-40's-50's-60's-70's and yes 80's . newest car I saw was
a Mercury Lynx.

Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The
junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over
the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given
special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed
with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be
done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore.
Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.
