junkyardtreasures The story behind this photo is another that will either make you weep or get bitterly pissed. This is not a salvage yard, but yet another classic car collection that rotted away. It's in the town of Hormigueros, Puerto Rico, on the southwestern corner of the Island. I found out about it a couple of days ago through a good friend who's also an automotive journalist. There are about 30 cars in this lot and just in this shot you can see a Mustang, an Impala, a Malibu, and a Camaro. My friend tells me that the collection belongs to a wealthy man from that area. He amassed so many vehicles, that he built a small car museum in Mayagüez, the main city in that part of my Island. But not having the space for these, he just left them unsheltered for decades in this field in Hormigueros. The owner is getting old and has decided (perhaps a little late) that it's time to start selling the cars. This next Saturday, April 4, he'll open the field and let anyone make offers on these cars. I travel today to cover the New York Auto Show, so yesterday was my last chance to see this ruined collection intact before some of the cars are bought and taken away from the field. So yes, yesterday I drove 120 miles (192 kilometers) each way with my son just to take photos from outside of the fence. I wanted to walk among these poor souls that once were shiny and flawless, but no one, except Max the guardian dog, was there to open the gate (and Max, although friendly, can't open gates). While in New York during the next few days, I'll be posting more photos from this once proud collection of vehicles that today is nothing more than a cemetery of cars. __

  •   my_southern_diary I see this all too often. There are two ways to look at it. Hoarders that are selfish or at least the cars were spared from the crusher. I shot a junkyard with hundreds and hundreds of cars. Posted. No admittance. Cars from the earliest makes, to the 70's. I also encounter the older collector nearing the end of his life, finally ready to sale. Either way, it is what it is. But no doubt always a story behind a car. 15h

  •   junkyardtreasures @growlerhaus Not that much of an effort. I really enjoy road tripping through the Island. If it's for car searching, better yet. 😀 5h
  •   junkyardtreasures @my_southern_diary Yes, the stories that these cars must have make them even more beautiful. The specific moment I always imagine is the moment in which these cars were taken home for the first time by a proud father to show to his family. The kids jumping up on down with excitement... 5h
