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.
Rare Bugatti Pulled From Lake After 73 Years.
Raw: A rare Bugatti that lay at the bottom of a lake for 73 years is set to
fetch over 80,000 pounds at auction-the price of a brand new luxury motor.
The legendary car was dumped in the water in 1936 by a frustrated Swiss
official because the owner had abandoned it without paying the import tax.
The value of the car was less than the money owed and the customs officer
was compelled to destr More..oy it.
Thus, he drove it over the Italian border to nearby Lake Maggiore - and
pushed it into the deep waters.
The story became part of folklore in the nearby town of Ascona as locals
debated whether the car actually existed.
After 30 years, the truth emerged after a keen diver rediscovered the
Bugatti lying on its side 160 feet down at the bottom of the lake.
Since then, members of the local diving club regularly visited it and last
year decided to raise it and sell it for a local charity.
Surprisingly, there was still air in the tyres and traces of the original
Bugatti blue paint on the bodywork.
It is believed that 20 per cent of the vehicle is salvageable and
collectors and museums are likely to be keen to buy it.
"We've offered a few things in our time in the motoring department, but
nothing like this," the Sun quoted James Knight, of auctioneers Bonhams, as
"Sometimes we get cars that have been hidden in barns for years, but never
have we had one that's spent 70 years at the bottom of a lake," he added.
The proceeds from the car's sell will be donated to the Damiano Tamagni
The Type 22 Bugatti, built in 1925, had four cylinders, a 1.5 litre engine
and reach almost 100mph.
It was a touring two-seater with no roof and was very lightweight.
The sale is on January 23 at the Bonhams Retromobile sale in France.
Farmers used to push old cars down into the banks hoping to hold them in
place. It was legal "back then" of course.The price of scrap steel was
not much back then and this seemed a good use for them. Some of those cars
were push by walls of water in big down pours, pushed down to the river.
Others were put directly on the river bank to help stop the river
encroaching any further onto a farmers river bottom ground as the river
would always change its course through the years and sometime in a few
hours...It was legal back then, of course not anymore. These cars and
trucks have had more miles of river pass them than they have driven

are "new" additions.
