Graveyard of Hollywood cars: The destiny of superhit autos

Some cars from some of the best Hollywood movies get sold in auctions for tons of money. However, some of these cars aren’t that lucky and end up in auto dump where they get recycled in most ways.

In the graveyard of Hollywood cars, you can find all kind of automobiles from some of the best movie hits. You can find out there all kind of police cars, buses, firefighters cars, limousines, ambulance cars, garbage trucks, and all kind of other vehicles. You even can find a few planes, helicopters, and metro trains. Some of these cars get recycled, some get renewed and are used in other movies later.

In a picture below you can see one of three Dodge cars used in chasing scenes back in the 80s. All these 3 cars were painted in the same color.

As you can see, some of these automobiles are really extraordinary. The owner of these photos is Troy Paiva, also known as “Lost America” since 2011. He has spent 27 nights at this auto graveyard for photographing these cars. As he says that each visit is different, because there are always new cars around and old ones are gone. Since the first visit, a lot of old cars were gone.

Anyways, I can bet he spent some really interesting time while making these photos, because this graveyard looks like really one of those places where you can’t be bored too much. Definitely a nice and kind of unique place with so many interesting vehicles.
