Back at the end of 2007 I posted what was to be the first part of a series of photo galleries featuring a number of awesome scrapyards I have visited over the last few years. The pictures here were shot back in 2001 and 2002 at a fantastic scrapyard in the south of Finland. The variety at this place was unbelievable with everything from 1950’s American cars to obscure Russian and Eastern European stuff. There was even a Canadian built Bombadier half track and a number of very early pre war cars. Whilst many had clearly languished there for a very long time, others looked to be very savable indeed, including several fairly rare Japanese cars. Places like this have disappeared from the UK and with European regulations these kind of scrapyards will soon be a thing of the past even in Finland.
Now that I finally have the bulk of the pictures from these scrapyards scanned in (I was still using a 35mm Camera back then), I will be adding several more of these galleries over the coming weeks.
