Rust in his blood. John B. of State College, Pennsylvania sent us these images from his trip to Loner's Salvage & Car Crushing in Port Matilda, Pennsylvania. John is only 16-years-old but has a passion for classic cars.
"I've taken hundreds of photos of rusty cars along the roads and at junkyards." John shared a look behind the scenes of Loner's after he spoke to, Bill, the owner and signed a waiver. "Some of the cars have survived really well," said John. "A couple of the cars could be pulled and restored but the majority were completely rusted shells that were missing their windshields and windows."

John, a huge fan of 1970 Chevelle Super Sports, was on the lookout for his favorite Chevy when a junked 1970 Mercury Monterey convertible caught his eye. "It appeared solid. That would've been the one I would take (to restore)," said John.
John didn't have any luck finding a 1970 Chevelle SSs but a 1968 Chevy Malibu, parked since 1988, is rotting away at Loner's. Dozens of classic Mopars, VWs, Buicks, Oldsmobiles, Chevys and an AMC can be found at this large Pennsylvania junkyard. Give them a call and check out the map, below, for directions.
