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.

Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.

muscle car salvage yard
i made a trip to a salvage yard to look for seats for a 1969 barracuda and
while i was there,i took alot of pics of cars and some trucks.lots of
dodges and mopars and alot of chevy cars too. not many fords or foreign
cars though. most of these are for sale and for parts.most cars are still
restoreable. i did get permission to go there so i didnt trespass or break
in. the yellow cuda in the warehouse was my favorite one. if you like
anything please comment and ill give you some contact info.. the yard is in
P.S. the place is heavily secured so dont think of breaking in or you will
get caught. the feed mill in the background is still in business and its
very busy and 18 wheelers use the gravel road that im parked on quite often
(the red 1986 chevy is my daily driver and is for sale in the deep east
