This actually is the site of an abandoned mine and mining town, but it's also the repository of the owners many, many, many old and rusting vintage cars.

Spent 3+ hours walking the grounds and snapping pictures. The vintage vehicles, tools, etc. are in great condition and displayed so you can sit in and pick up. We had so much fun.
