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.
Fusca no fundo do mar - National Marine Park de Cancun - México
Afundar sucata e outros objetos grandes para criar recifes artificiais para
a vida marinha está se tornando cada vez mais comum, mas a extraordinária
coleção de 400 esculturas como a de um Fusca no National Marine Park de
Cancun não tem paralelo na Terra. A instalação Recife Manchones de Jason
de Caires Taylor, chamada de A Evolução Silenciosa, é projetada para
criar um lar artificial cheio de cantos e recantos para crustáceos e
outras criaturas subaquáticas deslocadas pela agressão da humanidade a
seu habitat natural. Mas também chama a atenção para o profundo impacto
duradouro que a nossa sociedade de consumo terá nas gerações futuras.
Qual é a mais recente adição a este monumento submarino? Um Fusca de
cimento em tamanho natural repleto de detalhes para acolher a vida marinha
em seu interior.
Forgotten Volkswagen 23 Window Deluxe Samba
Got a tip on a bus that was owned by a local guy but that was located
almost 1100 miles away in New Mexico. We put a deal together on it and this
video documents some of the adventure in retrieving it from New Mexico.
Over 2300 miles traveled in just under 36 hours to bring this early pressed
bumper 23 window bus back to the Stable. Subscribe and follow the progress
of this very cool, possibly even rare by some peoples standards, 23 window
deluxe as it is slowly put back on the road.
