Massive Mustang Junkyard Found in RI
« on: December 10, 2008, 10:32:36 AM »
Over on another Mustang forum a member somehow stumbled upon a 200 plus acre Mustang Junkyard in the middle of nowhere in Rhode Island.  The junkyard which was started in the 60ís is populated with heavy tree cover and brush and is said to house some 20,000 antique and classic cars all throughout the woods.  According to the forum member the cars were driven into the field and left to rust by the owner of the junkyard who is now in his 70ís, going blind and has a drinking problem.  Recently the state was made aware of this junkyard and ordered the owner to clean it up or all the cars will be crushed.  There are said to be hundreds of 64-71 Mustangs including convertibles, Mach 1ís, Bossí, K-codes, fastbacks and maybe even Shelbyís.

LOL, Yea I noticed that. I'm still trying to figure out just how he pulled that one off.

I noticed he somehow was able to stack a lot of the cars one on top of the other, I'm wondering how he did it just because it doesn't look like he has much equipment.

I'm not even sure I can consider that a junkyard... It seems like he's been collecting all of the cars.

The only thing that saddens me is the fact that some of those cars could have been very easily salvaged had it been about 10-15 years earlier.  Looks like he had some pretty solid cars at one point in time.

I'm retired now and my 65 fastback is 99% completed. I need another one to start on.
