Recommended Posts

I was just looking at photos on MSN page today of what suppose to be the worlds largest junkyard. Possibly someone else could share the link here because I don't know how.

Looks like he takes good care of his parts. Pun intended.   I prefer a bone yard in the high desert.

Too bad this is another of those owners that wants to "save them for future generations to enjoy". The cars are going to be little piles of rust before this guy dies and his heirs can sell the stuff. Looks like he has a lot of good parts cars but no rare birds in restoreable condition.

Sure has, indeed.  Seen it a number of times.  It is fascinating, yet maddening at the same time ... ha.

Google Horopito Motors and you will see one of the bigger ones in this part of the world.  Lots of pics in Google images.

I'm puzzled by the claim that this is the worlds largest junk yard at a mere 32 acres. French lake Auto Parts here in MN is over 100 acres and Windy Hills, here as well, is larger than that. Both are modern yards which also specialize in vintage autos.

I totally agree, another waste by an eccentric collector ! Wayne
