Amazing Field of Rusting Classic Cars

Nearly 200 old American cars, rusting away in neat rows on US 60 just west of town. Edsels, Continentals, Rivieras, Corvairs, and others, primarily from the 1950s and '60s -- plus numerous pickup trucks from the era -- in a fenced-in field. The caretaker in the adjacent workshop said that his boss collects these relics and puts them on the roadside just for people to see; he doesn't even sell parts. You can't get up close to the cars, but they constitute an awesome sight regardless.

[David Chanhassen, 08/11/2013]

In the Texas panhandle these cars are probably more sun bleached and sand blasted than rusted, but we're just being picky. A good spot to experience Bulgemobile entropy.
