Is This The World's Largest Vintage Mustang Junkyard?

Behold the world's largest vintage Mustang junkyard—at least that is what we think it is. We certainly haven't ever seen more rusting and decrepit pony cars in one place than this massive junkyard has to offer. » 4/01/12 12:30pm 4/01/12 12:30pm

Pay Your Respects at Japan's Random Muscle-Car Graveyard

Daniel O'Grady, an Australian into exploring old Japanese castles, happened upon this random sadness pile in Kurume City on Kyushu island. It's definitely a five-hanky lot of cars gone to seed, though rife with rusty-muscle-car porn. » 1/28/12 12:00pm 1/28/12 12:00pm

A line of Packards

It isn't everyday you stumble upon a row of rusty Packards from three different decades while wandering through the junkyard. Flickr user gab482 stumbled across this rare orphan lineup a few years ago in the same Deerfield, MI junkyard where they captured this derelict 1960 Dodge. » 9/03/11 3:00pm 9/03/11 3:00pm

Tour a junkyard full of vintage iron from the comfort of home

If you aren't lucky enough to live around fields full of rusting vintage cars, these 360 panoramic images of a Texas Junkyard might be the next best thing. Jalopnik commenter Supercharger.Heaven tipped us off to these awesome pictures from CTC Auto Ranch in Texas which are good for hours of car spotting. » 8/21/11 12:30pm 8/21/11 12:30pm

Picked apart Pontiac

From the wide open hood and trunk to the busted out glass, this 1959 Pontiac has all the tell tale signs of an extended stay in a junkyard. When it was captured earlier this year in Alberta, Canada it looked like this late 50s sedan still had quite a few useful parts left to give.

Obsolete Oldsmobile

Oldsmobile lost market share in 1957 because it's design was considered to be dated in comparison with the new "Forwardlook" Chryslers, specifically Desoto (the company's direct competition). 54 years later, one look at this weathered Olds is enough for most car lovers to understand why GM's "dated" styling from 1957… » 8/06/11 12:30pm 8/06/11 12:30pm

Inactive International

From the looks of it this old (1959 or 1960) International Harvester Travelall saw some serious work duty before it ended up in this Alabama Junkyard. Without any remaining signage to give us a clue we can only wonder what trade this rare IH was employed in before it retired. » 7/30/11 12:30pm 7/30/11 12:30pm

Canadian Chrysler

Captured on a farm in Saskatchewan, this 1949 Chrysler shows some obvious signs of quite a few years spent out in the Canadian elements. Pictures of potential project cars like this one always manage to elicit automotive optimism from us, so it shouldn't come as a surprise we imagine this old Chrysler to be as… » 7/23/11 2:00pm 7/23/11 2:00pm

Heavy Chevy

It may be tired and weathered, but this 1955 Chevrolet 4400 still looks fairly complete. Unfortunately large commercial trucks such as these are not nearly as desirable as smaller trucks of the same era, which means it's unlikely this old truck will ever see the road again. » 7/16/11 12:30pm 7/16/11 12:30pm

Twelve rusty cars

This found-on-Flickr picture is a little bit Junkyard Porn and a little bit challenge. How many of the eleven cars and trucks in this picture beyond the 1941 Ford at the front can you identify? » 7/09/11 12:30pm 7/09/11 12:30pm

Hudson up high

Sitting on the edge of a Canadian junkyard if this old Hudson isn't enough to scare away potential trespassers, we aren't sure what is. We're going to guess where you see this old Commodore is likely where it will remain until it eventually meets the crusher. For now, the weathered old car sits above the junkyard… » 6/12/11 12:30pm 6/12/11 12:30pm

Derelict Dodge

Although it is shown here sitting in a Michigan junkyard surrounded by other old rusty Mopars, this 1960 Dodge Dart doesn't look too far gone. Judging from the chrome side trim this was the entry level Seneca model, the lowest Dart sold that year. It is anyone's guess why this old Dart ended up in the junkyard, but… » 6/05/11 12:00pm 6/05/11 12:00pm

Classic cars of a huge Nebraskan junkyard get a second chance at life

Far too often when an old junkyard full of classic iron closes, decades of restorable cars and valuable parts are cashed out for whatever the per ton rate of scrap metal is at the time. Thankfully this is not one of those stories, at least not yet. Although the owners of the 50 year old salvage yard in Maxwell, NE… » 5/22/11 4:00pm 5/22/11 4:00pm

'57 Chevy in a cornfield

It certainly looks like this 1957 Chevrolet 210 has been sitting in the Wisconsin cornfield where it was photographed for quite a while. Because of the popularity of the '57 Chevy and the fact this one has the right amount of doors we imagine it is only a matter of time before someone takes it upon themselves to save… » 5/22/11 12:30pm 5/22/11 12:30pm

Long term parking

If you are anything like me, the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "long term parking" is one of the best Sopranos episodes ever made. It turns out it is also the perfect title for this beautiful picture of a 1954 Mercury Monterey. While the title and photo are the work of Flickr user haydnseek, this… » 5/14/11 12:30pm 5/14/11 12:30pm

A southern Sunbeam

Found in the same Texas junkyard as last week's '52 Buick this Sunbeam is a little crunched up but doesn't appear to be beyond repair from this angle. We are guessing this is an example of the more docile Alpine model simply because we can't imagine many people coming across a V8 equipped Tiger in this condition and… » 5/08/11 12:30pm 5/08/11 12:30pm

A toothy grin

This 1952 Buick may have lost a few pieces of trim, but it's managed to hang on to its distinctive grille and front bumper, at least for now. Even though the Texas junkyard where this old Buick was spotted is likely the car's final resting place, at least it is going out with a grin. » 5/01/11 3:00pm 5/01/11 3:00pm

Ford in a field

Spotted on the edge of a field in Indiana, this 2 door '59 Ford Custom 300 looks like it might still has some life in it. From the angle shown the body appears to be in better condition than most ‘50s project cars in the North East.

Dead Bugs

A few of the over 21 million air-cooled Volkswagen Bugs built rust together while waiting for an unknown fate. It isn't hard to spot a Karmann Ghia and a Squareback sticking out like sore thumbs in the collection of rounded rooflines. » 4/16/11 12:30pm 4/16/11 12:30pm

I found that Fordor rare

This 1957 Ford Custom 300 "Fordor Sedan" is one of 194,877 built that year. The amount of '57 Custom 300s that remain intact today is likely a very small fraction of that number. Spotted in Goldfield, NV, this old Ford would need some front sheet metal straightened and parts replaced, but in our perhaps overly… » 3/27/11 1:30pm 3/27/11 1:30pm
