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..."

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!

Rattle Snakes, Brown Recluses, and Black Widows are 3 reasons why I do not like Texas. *shudder*

Well other than those critters the place was tolerable in July and I seriously doubt I can get to this junkyard in time. Be interesting if these find homes.

EDIT: How do vehicles rust in Texas other than getting Sunbaked? Or is this the Humid part of Texas?
