Default Abandoned junkyard in Sweden

After hearing about this place I just had to visit.
There are hundreds upon hundreds of cars, mostly 50's and 60's cars.
If you're nearby it's really worth a visit. Båstnäs Värmland.

The dog lives there? Testament to times long past.

Seems like hardly anything to salvage. Once the cars are stacked like that no one can get anything from any of them. To dangerous to climb on that.

Haha, no it's my dog.

Yeah, there isn't much to salvage at this point. Now it's more of a tourist attraction. It's located close to the Norwegian border and founded in the 50's when there was a profitable trade to the Norwegians where cars and parts were scarce.

Tourist attraction? What if you did find something useful, can you just bring your tools and take it? Surprised the area doesn't pull all of the cars out.

There is a owner to all this, and you can buy stuff if you find anything useful.
