Anyone remember this place? It has been a few years since I have been out there, but he had more foreign and odd cars than I have ever seen. I was thinking about going out there to look for parts, but when they wouldnt answer the phone, I figured I would check out google earth. Looks like ALL of the cars are gone! Can anyone confirm this? Or is google earth leading me astray?

Google maps shows some cars across the street but it looks like it's pretty much done.

Thats a shame. They had a lot of VW's. Lots of good parts left for split busses. Most of the cars were collected by the old man. I wonder if he passed away and the son crushed it all.

I drove by there first of last month. It is definitely fewer cars there now. I know that Chadd bought a bunch of stuff from him last year.
