Arrow PICTURES of the largest truck graveyard I know! Thousands of trucks and cars!

Just came on board and wanted to share this website with ya'll if you've never seen it before. I have been here before as it's not to far from where I live (30 min) and you can take a tour but they won't let you just "walk around". Many people here in Georgia don't even know this place exists much less anybody else. Just thought I would share this. Once you're on the site "take the backyard tour" to select what trucks or whatever you want see. It will shock you to see all this americana rotting away!

Don't have the exact address but it is in White Ga. off of interstate I-75 about 10 min. The place goes by Old Car City so you might get information via 411 or do a Google search for the address and use Mapquest for directions

It's days like these that I sometimes just want to steal my grand daughter's binky and go sit in the corner getting progressive brain damage from watching Noggin and pretend that it will all just go away. Maybe I should just buy a new pair of shoes (or a big tricked out nametag!) and move on.

I've been to this junk yard before. It's just off I-75 just north of Atlanta at the White/ Cartersville exit on 411. Just turn north on 411 and it's just a few minutes away. Neat place with a BUNCH of old stuff just rotting away.

Think of all of the front lawns that have had cars removed to create such a resting place.
