Today, I have a longer video for you - if you consider 4 minutes to be a long time that is - detailing the abandoned junkyard office down in Old Car City USA.

I finally got the video to upload in widescreen and at a higher quality than it was recorded in - the camera was set to its lowest recording quality for some reason - so the footage is much more watchable now. I’ve nearly exhausted Youtube’s supply of free use music that I like for this use so if you have any other sources you think I could use, let me know.

What did you think? There was a little bit of wobbliness in the footage on occasion but I think it would have been pretty solid if recorded in full 1080p 60fps widescreen. I believe the framerate was the most detrimental because of the shakiness.

Anyways, let’s get on with the photos!

First, this guy just can’t get this old piece of agricultural equipment started. I’ve been there before.

The big open shed was probably once a staging area for tearing off valuable parts before sending the rest of the car to rot in the ground. A few of the cars more firmly covered by the shed were in quite good shape. Others, not so much.

Someone couldn’t afford a fiberglass buggy body so they just took a Sawzall to this poor Volkswagen. There is actually some impressive engineering gone into the roll cage. I especially like how they formed the bar to taper towards the rear, following the lines of the sheet metal, showing off some difficult fabrication work.

There were lots of cool old instrument clusters lying around on the shelving. Old AM radios and other rare interior details were piled high all around.

Oof. Oh. Let me get out of here.

So, any thoughts?
