Hidden 1,000-vehicle junkyard heading for the crusher?

Just east of Austin, Texas, sits 1,054 old American cars from the '40s, '50s and '60s, rusting in the elements and infested with rattlesnakes. Sometime today, a deal may be struck to crush what's not pure oxidation already.

We don't know much about this site outside of a posting on MoparStyle forums, which included Google map coordinates to some of the cache. "All under these trees were 40"s and 50's trucks Studebaker, Larks, Buicks, Pontiacs, Ford..."


And here's what you find on Google Maps:

Tell you what, junkyard owners of America: If you've got several hundred vehicles and don't know what to do with them, drop us a line at tips@jalopnik.com. Maybe there's a few more people who might be interested in parts, pieces or even whole vehicles rather than experiments in automotive botany. Thanks Sterling!
