I do not know how much time he has to remove them. But if he has a couple of months , I would get it out to all the car sites and have an auction & the winners have to remove. Then the last month he cleans up whats left if any.

My son is trying to get more photos sent. Here is a 62 Chevy wagon, and he says there are several wagons there. And yes the plan is to sell as many as they can as cars and parts in hopes that they can be saved, but the rest will be crushed eventually. There is a shed with hubcaps, engines, and trim ( that is the wheel photo which I think is upside down) and also a truck box full of carbs of all kinds.

CRAAAAP I wish I were close enough to get one of those beauties (I'd love a long-roof for some future project) and that '62 looks like it would fit the bill nicely!!!!

What I've always wondered is how the cars get there. Did the owners just leave them when they were done? Why not trade in or sell them? I just don't get how complete cars are just sitting in the woods. Especially when you find high performance cars out there. You spend the equivalent of $50,000+ today on, say a cuda, with all the bells and whistles then just dump it in the woods one day? I don't even.. I just don't get it?

It was my impression from what my son said the there was at one time a business there, mechanic/junk yard? But most of the cars were just left for dead. I will ask for more pictures, but I have seen pics of several mustangs and corvairs. The wagon I had asked for more info on turns out to be a hearse, early 50's.

It must be like hoarders. There are a couple of -collections- like that here in Illinois, and recently a couple were lost to the crushers. Go Figure?!?!? At least my son and his partner are trying to get the cars to people who want them as cars or parts but eventually they too will be crushed.

That's the thing, people have pie in the eye mental illness thinking they will sell them "when they are worth more" or worse yet, keep them to restore, they are of course delusional.

But they REALLY think they will do something with them and keep collecting them. Just like any "hoarder" they are delusional. My friend who passed away a couple of years ago, he had a mini "collection" with about 20 cars, from a beautiful 80's built 32 Three window to a rusted out junk 62 TBird conv. And to talk to him he was going to build every one of them. But his house looked the same with sports memorabilia and other "collectables". HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of "collectables" to the point where the bed was covered and he was sleeping on the couch!
Anyone with cars like that out in their property obviously has an issue.
