Rockwood, Ontario, Canada Vintage Wrecking Yard.

My brother Mike and I took in the little know antique wrecking yard in Rockwood, Ontario, Canada and absorbed the oldies there. Hope you enjoy these forgotten jewels of the past. The photos represent about 2% of the cars that are there. Yes it is sad but at least these jewels were not scraped to make jap scrap many years ago. Cheers.

Yes a very sad state of affairs but at least these cars were not scraped many years ago to build cheap **** jap cars and products. They are still there as opposed to being gone for future JUNK. I took many more photos than these but my camera goofed up and these are the ones that came up. Cheers.

Amazing George! How many acres do you think are holding these poor vehicles?

So sad that at one time these were new cars and trucks giving their owners wonderful memories and now they're laid to rest.

RIP beautiful Oldies! Cheers.

I am not sure of the actual size of the whole yard but it is real easy to get lost if you forget your bearings. It is really more a various number of yards that adjoin one another to make the whole yard. You have to remember various markers or you will be lost in massive maze of old wrecks. Cheers.

I have added some photos. Look at that 1956 Chev that the floor and trunk are the earth. That 56 was there for a very long time. This yard is a haven for photo hogs. There were so many folks there taking serious photos. Cheers.

Can we play NAME THAT CAR? Some of these had me scratching my head and going what the heck is that?

I won't tell you my score. It's embarrassing. Just when you think you know a lot, you know not much at all. Humbling.........very.

Fun to look at though. Thanks George

Mario, may your very words be used to describe US someday: I just changed the order of words a bit.

So sad that at one time these were wonderful people giving their cars and trucks wonderful memories and now they're both laid to rest.

RIP beautiful Oldies! Cheers.

Beautiful words Rob, should be on our tombstones instead of "Here Lies What's His Name".

Does this car cemetery accept people too? I wouldn't mind being laid to rest under a 1969 Camaro SS350 4sp. Cheers!

I added some more photos of this vintage yard outing. I have thought of maybe adding the years and names of these cars as I know them. Cheers.

A collection of rusting relics but I am glad they are still there. These old rusted gems could have been crushed countless years ago. For now they are still there, resting in peace..... or pieces, I prefer peace. Cheers.
