Last year the country got to see the most unique auto graveyard in the world.  The New York Times did an article about Old Car City, and soon followed was CBS Sunday Morning News, Time Warner News, Yahoo News, and even a rumor of a reality show.  The attendance of photographers has exploded since all the news reports, which is good so that it keeps Old Car City in business.
