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…

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…

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.

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…

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…

'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…

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.

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…
