Ya know, a part of me really struggled with this. Should I share a video from a channel that has a load of them that depict the workings of a wrecking yard car crusher? Does this run against every bone in my car loving body? Is it something that we should not support because it’s the destruction of (sometimes) cars we have lusted after?
Then I woke up and realized that it is none of those things. Yes, you are going to see a 1976 Buick meet its maker here, the cab of an old D200 Dodge truck, a worthless Toyota and a more worthless Pontiac, along with a Saab. Yes, it sucks that the Buick had a couple of pieces that could have been saved and the Dodge truck’s grill looks like it was decent, but outside of that let’s be real.
This is a wrecking yard, one of hundreds that do this all day, every day, seven days a week. It is a sad reality that we cannot “save them all” but that’s how it goes, right? The really interesting part of this is the fact that the cars al crush kind of differently with the Toyota basically turing into tissue paper and the old Buick, while flat, maintains some dignity in the process.
If you hate this, don’t watch. If you can look at the stuff in this pile and realize that it had likely been in the yard for a decade or more, had been picked clean of some parts by people, and was either going to rot to death or end up this way, proceed.
Oh, the guy has a whole channel full of these videos and yes, some of them feature cars from the 1960s that carry cool names. Let’s just say that they are not exactly resto candidates though.
