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.

'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model, that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.





Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt? Took 45 years to bury this Volkswagen and almost 2 days to dig it out. Have a look. Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since 1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for 45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters. Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960 VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965. We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us a call today if you know of one. Thanks again.

1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.

1,2 Million KM Mercedes 300TD Winter Start
Here's a video of the worn Mercedes 300TD starting on a pretty cold day. It used to be a taxi, and has over 1,2 million km on it.





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.

Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before shooting the vid!

Mercedes-Ponton-Crash-left.mpg
Der Mercedes Ponton Crashtest - Linke Seitenansicht Im Rahmen des Jahrestreffens der Mercedes Benz-Interessengemeinschaft im Juni 2010 für die Ponton-Manufaktur auf der Crashanlage des ADAC in Landsberg/Lech. Eines der Highlights beim Jahrestreffen 2010 der Mercedes Benz Interessengemeinschaft (MBIG) in München: Der weltweit allererste Crashtest eines Ponton-Modells nach dem aktuellen EuroNcap-Schema - ein Verfahren, das deutlich schärfere Anforderungen als der reguläre Zulassungstest stellt. Die spannende Frage dabei: Wie verhält sich ein Modell aus dem Jahr 1957 in einem Crashtest, der erst 40 Jahre später, im Jahr 1997, eingeführt worden war? Die Konfiguration sieht vor, dass ein Fahrzeug mit 64 km/h seitlich versetzt gegen eine deformierbare Barriere gefahren wird - eine extrem hohe Beanspruchung für die Karosserie-Struktur. Hiermit wird recht praxisnah der seitlich versetzte Frontalunfall im Gegenverkehr simuliert. Diesen Anforderungen musste sich auch der kleine Ponton (180er) stellen. Abweichend vom üblichen EuroNcap-Verfahren waren Fahrer- und Beifahrerplatz allerdings nicht mit einem Dummy mit Sensoren besetzt. Dies ergab sich daraus, dass das Risiko einer Beschädigung der extrem teuren Messpuppen als sehr hoch einzuschätzen war - schon deshalb, weil der Ponton nicht über Sicherheitsgurte verfügte. Insofern konnten zur Verletzungsschwere der Insassen keine Messdaten erfasst werden. Der Versuch fand als Bestandteil des Jahrestreffens der MBIG im Juni 2010 statt. Das Fahrzeug wurde von der Ponton-Manufaktur, Thomas Hanna, in München-Hallbergmoos zur Verfügung gestellt. Der Crash fand im ADAC Technik-Zentrum in Landsberg/Lech statt. Wie die Aufnahmen der Hochgeschwindigkeitskameras zeigten, blieb der „Überlebensraum" des Passagierabteils umfassend erhalten. Die rechte Tür ließ sich problemlos öffnen, die linke hätte leichtes Werkzeug erfordert. Stark verformt wurde - wie es sein soll - der Vorderwagen. Hier zeigte sich bereits die „Knautschzonen"-Philosophie des Mercedes-Entwicklers Béla Barényi, obwohl sämtliche Elemente seines Patents aus den Jahren 1951/52 bei der Ponton-Baureihe noch gar nicht umgesetzt waren. Komplett findet sich sein wegweisendes Sicherheitskonzept dann in der Heckflosse wider. Was umso beachtlicher ist, als der ADAC im vergangenen Jahrzehnt etliche aktuelle Automodelle auf seiner Crashanlage hatte, bei welchen die Karosseriezelle deutlich kollabierte. Nachdem beim Ponton-Crash die Dummies Pause hatten, konnten folgerichtig keine Belastungen auf die diversen kritischen Körperteile ermittelt werden - insofern ist ein direkter Vergleich mit anderen EuroNcap-Ergebnissen nicht möglich. Negativ fiel jedenfalls auf, dass Lenksäule/Lenkrad bis zur Oberkante des Windschutzscheibenrahmens hochgestiegen waren, mit abschätzbar schwerwiegenden Folgen für den Fahrer. Eine einfache Maßnahme wie ein Gelenk oder ein Deformationselement in der Lenksäule hätte diesen Effekt zumindest abmildern können. Nachträglich lässt sich derartiges leider nicht einbauen. Zur Reduzierung der Risiken hätte ein (Dreipunkt-) Sicherheitsgurt aber beitragen können. Und der lässt sich ja bekanntlich nachrüsten, wie auch Kopfstützen, welche die Halswirbelsäule beim Heckaufprall entlasten. Womit dieser Crashversuch nicht nur eine Hommage an Béla Barényi und die damaligen Technik-Vorstände beim Daimler darstellt. Er gibt auch einen Hinweis, wie der Ponton-Fahrer länger gesund bleiben könnte - im Fall eines Unfalles. Manfred Groß / Copyright: Thomas Hanna 2011
