Salvage Yard

In the heart of southeast Georgia, dozens of old rusty automobiles have met their final resting place. The family-owned and operated salvage business opened in the early 1960s. Numerous locals have stories and childhood memories of walking through the old salvage yard, admiring the cars and trucks. There are dozens of automobiles ranging from the 1940s to the 1980s.
When the original owner retired, his grandson, who worked with him, took over the business. Since the 2000s, the salvage yard has been dying a slow death thanks mostly in part from the internet and eBay. Rather than close the company, the current owner is working to transform the old salvage yard into a family-friendly automobile graveyard. Categorized by decade, many of the automobiles have not moved in quite some time. The automobile graveyard is still in the works. The owner hopes the collection will continue to grow. He plans to add more cars as they are hauled from the overgrown Georgia woods.
