    Default LF: Muscle car/vintage car graveyard for music video

    I know this is a long shot, but I'm hoping someone on here might know of a vintage car wrecker here in Alberta for a location to shoot a music video.

    Any leads would be greatly appreciated!

    Take the highway at the wetaskiwin exit off highway 2 and head westz about 10km down that highway there is a farm with maybe 100 old rotting cars on the property.

    Sorry it's so vague

    "Muscle car grave yard", uh, yeah.....good luck. Unless you consider Chevy II's to be "muscle cars". I guaran-fucking-tee you, you'll never ever come across fields of rotting Chargers, Cuda's, Mustangs, Camaro's and the like. Not happening. At most you'll find perhaps a couple sitting in some farmers lot, and even then thats quite a find. Most people know the value of those cars, and to see them just sitting there rotting away is extremely rare. The only muscle car I know of, just sitting there is a 1973 Trans am w/455super duty & 4 speed rock crusher, but its utterly mangled *way* beyond restoring. Its in a huge lot with a shit ton of other stuff, from the '20's to the 80's. He's two km's from my dads farm.
    Some of the members on these US hotrodding forum's Im on snapped pics of Super Bee's, Camaro's and the like rotting in peoples back yards, but those are about as rare as Dodo birds these days.

    Here I snapped all these in southern Sask. There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of them. Most of them are concentrated in small lots.

    Let me know what interests you and I'll connect you to the owner.

    ^ You'll see a collection of old 1915-1930 cars, thats probably a good bet for you... same with some of the rows of old farm trucks. Both are within 20minutes of each other just east of our farm, off of highway 13 in rural sask.



    EDIT: If this was a year ago, I would have suggested the Renolds Museum, which is what Redlyne_MR2 is suggesting, but all those cars/trucks went to the crusher about four months ago. There is nothing there anymore.
    Actually there used to be about 300-600 cars depending on when, but most were sold over the last couple years, what was left went to the crushers.

    Ever been out to Dale Flatla's yard out in Tilley? Tons of classic iron there, gotten many a rare Hemi/440 part from that place.
