A crushing experience


Some vehicles in Ocala endure a crushing experience so severe they must be taken to a place where they can be brought back to life in another form.

Isn't it good that they recycle all of this junk? I hate it when I pass a junkyard and see thousands of junkers sitting there, rusting away.

Lot of red cars on that flatbed.

You see, there is life after death... ;-)

You know, I don't think we even have a car crushing service here, or whatever they're called.

The sign is very apt, given the cars are all looking as flat as hamburgers!

Halcyon said...

Wow! That's something you don't see every day.

Good that they are recycling.

It's a little different ride than the one that delivered these cars to the showroom.

I wonder how many cars are packed on that trailer. I presume all the parts were scavenged before the 'ol crushing machine did it handywork.

Judy said...

That is a lot of crushed cars. Traffic must be dangerous around there.

Recycle and reuse! It seems that most of the old metal here is shipped to China for processing. Doesn't seem very efficient to me.

Kay said...

I guess this is a form of "cremation" for cars, yes?

Rush hour must be quite the experience in Ocala!

You said once you wanted to find a local junkyard for photography purposes. Looks like one drove past you! It's amazing how many cars are loaded on there.

How to create a metal scrap new luxury. It is good that there is this way of recycling. Peter.
