    Deep in the woods of Sweden an odd discovery was made by a photographer. He stumbled upon a massive graveyard containing about a 1,000 vintage cars left to rust.

    Two brothers started the scrapheap in the early fifties by storing vehicles left abandoned after the Second World War, like Buicks, Volvo's, Saabs and some VW camper vans. The brothers sold the spare parts for repairs and had a blooming scrap business till the late eighties. During the nineties they left the site and gave nature a chance to take over. Birds made nests in some cars and trees grew through windows, so environmentalists try to stop Swedish government from cleaning the place up. The value of the graveyard cars is estimated at about 125000 Euro's (that's about 165000 dollars)
