1957 Plymouth Belvedere - Oldtimerfriedhof Kaufdorf - Swiss Junkyard (2/2)

Today we picked up the 1957 Belvedere 4dr sedan I bought a few months ago. Roger Linder was a great help and gently loaded the car onto the trailer. Thanks a lot! Heute ist es soweit! Wir sind in Kaufdorf und holen den 1957er Plymouth Belvedere ab, den ich dort bei der Auktion im September 2009 gekauft habe. Roger Linder lädt das Fahrzeug vorsichtig auf unseren Anhänger, ohne seine Hilfe hätten wir verdammt alt ausgesehen. Vielen Dank, Roger! Vielen Dank übrigens auch noch an die Idioten, die fast sämtliche vorhandene Zierleisten, Schriftzüge und diverse Knöpfe gestohlen haben...muss sowas eigentlich sein? If you're a fan of the movie "Christine" or 1957 / 58 Plymouths in general don't forget to join the International Christine Club.

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 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.
