This old car junkyard is a unique take on urban decay, except it’s old classic cars that are on decaying display.

Out front, you may notice a sign, which is also rusty, that reads “The world’s oldest junkyard jungle, here 80 years.”

And the same family still owns the land and property today.

As you walk the 34-acre grounds, you’ll find more than 4,000 American-made cars, trucks, vans, and even a couple school buses from the early 20th Century.
