Secret Junk

In Kaufdorf, Switzerland there exists an untouched junkyard filled with cars from the 30s  through the 60s.

The now overgrown relics were originally bought for their parts by a car dealer who – not wanting to see the vehicles pressed and shredded – parked them cheek by jowl on his lot.The dealer retired in the 1970s and passed the business on to his son, who left the old cars where they were.”

Looks like the Swiss government is planning on paving over the site to prevent toxic seepage into the ground.
