1500 classic cars to be crushed!!

I got this info from another site. EVERYTHING TO BE CRUSHED!

They are crushing cars a this junkyard very quickly.
Default 1500 Cars Going to be crushed March 2011. Buy them while you can
I know of a Junkyard in York, PA that bought a old abandoned junk yard about 6 years ago and now township wants the old junkyard gone and cleaned up. All these cars/trucks will be crushed starting the 1st week of March. I walked the yard myself twice. Most of the cars are from mid 1940's thru 1979. From what I have seen the cars are complete. All makes and models are in the junkyard. He built a garage and has 1 or 2 guys working there disasembling cars and trucks what ever you want. They have the heavy equipment there to pick up and put the cars/trucks you want on your trailer or rollback. I talked to him a few weeks ago and he is now trying to sell the cars just as scrap weight to try and save as many as he can. The prices were pretty high back a few years ago but now time has run out on him.

The name of the junk yard is Baugmans Auto Parts. Phone# is (717) 846-3944 Mon-Sat. I imagine it will take about 2 months to crush everything once the crushing starts. He will save any cars you want if you come and spray paint your initials on them and put down payment on cars you want as he has told me. I plan on getting a few but can't save them all. Hope alot of people come to the rescue of these old cars. You can google map the address and look at the cars thru sattelite imagery and see them in the woods.
Here are pictures of some of the cars. MANY MANY WAGONS!!

Happens a lot as these old junk yards are a major liability to the land owner under current EPA rules. Keep in mind the original owner is probably retiring and selling the land before he is the owner of a designated super fund clean-up site.

That story is fairly old. Most of those cars are gone by now. You can always call them...

Really? How old? The pics were fairly recent. Did they crush early?

I saw that article on Team Camaro about two years ago. But as I said this happens all the time.

There was a crazy old coot up in MN or WI (I am not sure exactly where) who had over twenty acres of land covered with tin sheds and old semi trailers. Inside of them from floor to ceiling were literally thousands of old high performance motors, with rare vintage options (such as the original Winters foundry Z/28 cross ram with numbers matching Holley carbs). Two complete low mileage LS6 powered SS 454 1970 Chevelle, and a Hemi Cuda ht, a bunch of old Indian and Harley bikes, 413 and 426 wedge Chrysler motors along with Demons, and Dusters, Mustangs numbering over forty, and anything that smelled of high performance.

He bought all of this stuff up and stashed it away back in 1973-'74 during the peak of the oil embargo when gas quadrupled in price and you couldn't give away a car with racing stripe or SS written on it. (a RS/SS Camaro was going for what was owed on the car loan). He was sitting on all of this stuff waiting for the price to go up, so he could retire, when he died of old age. Did I mention he was crazy?
