I can't figure that last one out either. All I've been able to figure out so far is what it isn't. If you find out, I'd love to know.

What a nice name for car cemetery. We call ours "junk yard". Very beautiful shots.

Nå skulle jeg til å skrive "Fy Fxxn! Så stilig!" Men det er best å ikke banne.

The plastic they make cars out of nowadays certainly doesn't rust in nearly as interesting a fashion as the old, all metal ones do. Great series!

Jeg fatter ikke at folk bare parkerte bilene og lot dem gå i oppløsning, gamle biler har personlighet og de kan gå i mange år om de behandles pent.
Veldig spennende location og flotte bilder! Nøyaktig hvor er dette? :)

Very nice series, so many odd shapes and styles.. not to mention the great colors and textures. Love it.

Båstnäs skroten ligger ca 10 mil öster om Oslo följ bara E18 till töcksfors . när du kommit dit sväng höger vid T-Fors kyrka sen åker du till vägens ände dvs ca 19 km E`voila och du är framme.... mvh T Ivansson ....... Fina bilder var tvungen att slå på båstnäs och se vad som dök upp.... alltid kul att se alla bilder som tas ...

Så de er ikke ryddet helt bort enda. Var der for et par tre år siden, og da hadde myndighetene fjernet ganske mange av vrakene. Skal jammen ta meg en tur dit igjen denne våren/sommeren!! Det er jo så utrolig morsomt å fotografere der. :)

The tail lights on that Morris Oxford appear to have been inspired by the famous Packard "cathedral" tail lights.
