Boneyard Photo Gallery: The Motorama Museum’s Boneyard In Wisconsin Is Weird and Awesome

(Words and photos by Greg Rourke) –  Our recent visit to the Motorama Auto Museum in Aniwa Wisconsin was eye opening, to say the least. Marques I’d never heard of were everywhere. Our host Tom Zatloukal cautioned me to not miss The Boneyard, an outdoor part of the museum full of old iron. Would you have left without seeing it?

During the winter the Museum is closed, northern Wisconsin winters and so forth. Tom hits the road in search of worthy additions to his collection. Folks donate cars, and Tom has the ability to just find stuff. Some end up inside on display, some end up in The Boneyard. Many are beyond restoration, many look like good candidates to be brought back to life. None will be stripped for parts, none will be crushed. They are here for us, and future generations to enjoy.
Dig the GTO, the Mustang convertible, the 30s cars, and the Volkswagen someone made into a pickup. Corvairs and more Corvairs, one with the keys in the trunk lock. A row of Vairs that look like the back row of a used car lot from 1971. A Porsche, a few Mercedes, a Marlin, and what may have been the Rambler Cross Country that Joe Dirts parents drove on vacation.
Not enough for you to look up Aniwa on Google Maps? Did we mention they have a bar open on weekend evenings?  We’ll see you there.
