    what a shame

      A nice barn find like these are always nice

    • Hendo

      #10 and #29 – If that is a real deal Shelby Daytona then that is the biggest shame of them all. There were on SIX made and even in that condition would sell for $1 million EASY. I wanna slap the f*ck out of whoever did that.

      • babraham

        it is a real daytona. Interesting story behind this car as well.

      • Jay

        The gullwing Mercedes are worth a fortune too…WTF is wrong with people??? Even the drop-top Bel Air is a waste…

    • Carini

      FWIW, many of these were taken before they were restored. I have seen at least a few of these like #5 that were very tastefully done on shows like Velocity's "Chasing Classic Cars" among others. So don't let these pics fool you.

    • SockMoney17

      Unfortunately, the owners of many of these cars still don't want to sell them. They become foolish old people who end up dying and their car get sold anyway by their grandsons who sells them for drug money.

      Exactly the words that came out of my mouth.

    • Sylvain R.

      Same here…..

      wish I could save a couple of them.

  • Belvizzle Mcshizzle

    What a shame!

  • ilbrutto

    My soul has died. Millions upon millions of dollars worth of cars, wasted. Although I know the Shelby Daytona is actually restored now I believe.

    • @BlackBoxDsgn

      My soul has died a little bit also. That F40! But yes the Shelby has been restored.

    • Bern

      I believe the Daytona coupe is CSX2601 and yes it is restored and was sold by Mecum a couple years ago for a few million

      • Bern

        I stand corrected. CSX2287, not 2601

    • Nick Parsons

      #4 #18 both have been rescued also, 18 is here in Oregon somewhere

  • bryan

    I was holding it together pretty well, up until I saw that beautiful mustang. I dont know who did this. But im going to find them. And im going to kill them.

  • majorfathead

    A tear came to my eye

    • mbns

      Mine too, and I've never teared up on theChive before…

  • kokoloco

    #72 this makes me sad…so much potential…

    • Jak

      I wanna throw up

    • Static

      no kidding… and #4 also.

      63 split window… barely 10K made. worth a ton – you could probably get 50K for the #72 if it had the z06 engine. restored… close to 200k

    • Mo'Phat

      Far too many Corvettes in this post. #72 #36 #18 #9 #4

    • stef

      I love corvettes so much I got a corvette tattoo, all these corvette pics make me so sad! I would love to show these cars some TLC

      • Mike

        I also have a Bette tattoo. These pics make me sad.

  • Andy Valentine

    A wannabe mechanic's wet dream. I wonder who else would just love to salvage one and spend a couple of years restoring it to it's former glory.

    • 3smash

      This chivette would!

      • mick

        most of these cars started out as project cars then money or interest runs out

  • yeeNyeee

    so much potential

  • insanely great

    #3 whoever did that should bow their head in shame.

    • Chickentikka

      Sad day for me too

    • MonkeyMadness

      He should have parked it in a cave and waited for Marty to catch up with him in time to rescue him.

    • GernBlansten

      What? It's not like it will rust out…..

    • Iceman2509

      Since when is a Delorean a classic car? Or #14? A Toyota? Really?

      • insanely great

        A Delorean?- It's from the 80's and I don't believe they make them anymore..Haven't you seen Back 2 the future, surely that's enough to make it a classic! Agree about theToyota though

        • Iceman2509

          I guess you have a point. It was a very unique car and I guess they are kinda rare. My point was that it wasn't very special other than it was BTTF and made of stainless steel. I still like seeing them though. Not as much as some of the Stingrays and Chargers above, but they are cool.

          • MrPants

            A Delorean is a fairly rare find. Stingrays and Chargers are a lot more common. As far as the Supra goes, if you read the title of this page it reads: "Photos of classic, supercars and muscle cars abandoned junkyard." The Supra is a badass car. Why do the 90's Lotus' and TVR's get to be here but not the Supra?

          • pendant

            Please don't qualify the word unique with "very", it is either unique or it is not.

        • Joe

          Deloreans are fairly rare, but only because no one bought them in the first place. They were terribly underpowered and overweight due to US emissions and safety standards, so they were slow even by early 80's standards. They also ended up costing something like double the intended price. So many spare parts were left behind when production ended that a company in Texas is still building complete vehicles from new old stock parts, so technically you can still buy a brand new one.

      • LoganExplosion

        Yeah, a toyota SUPRA. DURR

      • pretty smile


    • @McBeastie666

      The Delorean was only fictionally considered a "nice" car in a certain movie series, otherwise it wouldn't have been such a colossal failure.

    • Stuffhobbes

      Doc DID tell Marty to destroy it once he got back…

    • FoolOfATook

      Looks like it's been there since 1955.

  • kybuilttoyotatoyota

    These are some of the most depressing pictures I have seen in a while! I am a car nut so it hits me hard. Hopefully someone will return these cars to their glory days!

    #14 "2JZ, no shit?"

      You guys actually think "Paula" is a chick?? Try a 35 yr old dude sitting in his parents basement living out his life pretending to be this "Paula" person.

        – older than satan

        • Tatts

          #1 Comparing yourself to satan is preposterous, you're just an attention whore so try to keep your ego in check.

          #2 In addition a "successful troll" is akin to a "successful child molester" so congrats on that.

          #3 Men who can actually get women have time for additional interests such as cars or sports. But a middle-aged child molester wouldn't know that so no surprise there.

          • Jak

            Lol you posted pics lololol

              sigh, I'm a genius.

                    oh so you can cum?

    • GernBlansten

      I am well aware of the punishment for correcting you, but don't you mean the The Throttle?

      • Paula_

        No precious, it means the Berry. You knowsies; that site for 'men' that are 'in to' fancy cars instead of 'in to' women.

        – I just remembered; is my soldering iron still stuck in your ass?

        • GernBlansten

          Regarding the soldering iron, no the proctologist was able to remove it. However I think you will need a new one, as the speculum did a number on yours.

        • Josh

          The Throttle has pictures of cars, the Berry has pictures of dudes. So, yes, I think you mean the Throttle.

          • Paula_

            Why don't you join GernBlansten; he's in the room labeled: "People who don't get it".

              Paula- I want to have sex with you.

            • tapsnapornap

              I got it, wasn't funny

              • Paula_

                It wasn't about it being funny or not, so what you're saying is that you do, in fact, not get it.

                -the one you love to hate

                • tapsnapornap

                  Funny, "insult" to guys that like cars "instead of" girls, "clever", whatever. I got it and it was convoluted and weak.

    • LoganExplosion

      go post your worthless comments at foxnews

      • BenB

        Go suck a dick at CNN, fucking liberal

    • Desi

      Shut! The! Fuck! Up! You! Fat! Cow!

      Seriously, you fucking whale. Shut up. Go find a place out in the desert where you can quietly mummify and leave the world in peace. A thousand years from now, anthropologists will find your dessicated remains and argue over whether or not you were a mammoth, a beached whale, or some kind of unknown North American rhino.

      You're not a 'successful troll', you're an attention-hungry, fat monstrosity who masturbates with full sized hams–and then devours them. Small children and pets are kept away from you out of fear of them being eaten. You stink and really need to be hosed down before the EPA steps in and declares you a Superfund site. Not that it would do any good; decades of not bathing have led to a layer of filth under, in, around and over your fat folds that will take acid to wash away. If the US could find a way to weaponize your stench, we'd have a weapon no nation would dare challenge.

      You really should change your name to "Sarlacc"; much more descriptive, though even that poor thing pales in comparison to the all-devouring maw that is Paula. You're a fucking wildebeest.

      And no, I don't hate you. I loathe you. You're a waste of human flesh, a genetic mutation that should have died at birth, and your very existence lessens us all as a species. If Darwin had seen you, he'd have given up and shot himself in the head. You're an evolutionary throwback, though not even the Neanderthals would have accepted you. They'd have hunted you like the beast you are and left cave paintings of you to warn future generations.

      • Bruce

        I guess successful troll was successful after all

          I guess idiot ass is an idiot ass after all

      • Paula_

        It's a tad long for a fan testimonial dear, can you please give me the management summary?

        – Fan testimonial: "Paula your infamy is outstanding. I remember back in the days before you plagued the comment section of just reading boring opinions, much like my post now. Honestly, your baiting of the stupid and chive-specific trolling (as opposed to cheap shots like "The Chivery" always attempts) is priceless."

        • insanely great

          oh oh…lets play a game of who hasn't had sex in a really LONG while….
          I'm sure the length of that paragraph reflects said posters little shortcomings and reeks of sexual frustration.
          Isn't it actually really funny that someone took so much time and effort out to hate someone that much.
          I'd be honoured if I were you that you can gain such a reaction from an anon weirdo/stalker on the internet. 🙂

      • Garret

        You sir are my favorite person today.

    • Wow Paula

      Paula, for the second time, I want to find your stupid bitch of a mother and slit her throat. She should burn in hell for giving birth to you. Please leave theChive, you're not as witty as you think you are.

      • Alpha0010

        Why does everybody get so worked up about Paula anyways? Have you never heard of not feeding the troll?

      Especially after I watched all 3 BTTF movies today

  • @Sexy_McGee

    So SAD.

  • strizzle

    Unrelated, you guys are tough to get a hold of now. Anyways as of recently a lot of people in colorado springs have lost homes, and I believe they need a good old chive shout out to help kcco. thanks

    • FoCo Chiver

      Don't forget Estes Park! I have friends living over there, not to mention the High Park area where 190 homes have been lost. I can only imagine what the heat must be doing to the firefighters, but they are KCCO'ing and have been fighting nonstop! Many of them are staying on campus here at CSU on breaks.

      Pray (or do whatever you do) for rain on those fires!

      • Jasper

        Let's throw Boulder into this mix now as well. Woo Colorado!

  • triplecap

    Chances are that most of these cars' owners know exactly what they have but don't have the time/funds to complete them. It's one thing to keep them and let them appreciate in value, but letting them rot outside is the banking equivalent of paying $5 a month in service fees until your account balance is $0.

  • FarmBoy

    #2 #4 #36 #67 #72 Sad day

    • Orcslayer

      and what about #28 ? That's a frikkin Ferrari Daytona…

    • greg

      such a waste! does anyone know how to find out where these little gems are, and if they're for sale. such a waste!!

  • @Thogert

    I stopped looking after 10 pics. I couldn't handle the sorrow.

  • Mickey

    Look at the bright side. There are still untapped resources out there.

  • Henrico

    Why oh why, do us okes in south africa who would give a left nut for any one of those cars to restore have to sit without gems like that, while overseas they see it fit to just let them rust?

    • Dick Salad

      It's has nothing to do with nationality. Go ahead and try to track down these cars to purchase them. Most of the owners have unrealistic expectations of value based on current conditions. Add the complete disregard of the monetary/time investment needed to restore them and you get a bunch of dumb fucks unwilling to sell their cars which are further depreciating in value.

  • beserker

    yeah! we south africans around there would all have ferraris etc on the road with so many awesome cars lying around!
