Junkyard Life Find of the Day: Car club's classic stash for sale in Pennsylvania field

Field of dream cars. More than 75 classic cars are for sale in Watsontown, Pennsylvania. Two Mid-Atlantic-area car clubs folded and decided to sell off their collection of cars. Their vintage iron has occupied a remote farm for decades. Most of the cars were hauled in to save them from the crusher many years ago. Property owner and manager of the sale, Stanley, says everything is for sale but they aren't giving it away.
  "I have guys come in here wanting to buy five or six cars for $50 each," Stanley said. "No way, that's going to happen. We sell the whole cars, not parts."
  Stanley can be reached at 570-538-3464. Be prepared to pay what he deems a fair price and don't show up unannounced. Many of the cars spent time in a barn, helping to preserve their condition.
  Many thanks to John Berkan who sent us these photos to spread the word and save some classic cars.

1955 Imperial

Rare finds
  Among the most-notable cars that have yet to be sold are a 1955 Imperial two-door hardtop, one-of-3,418 built. Stanley says the price is $5,000. A big, red 1972 Olds Delta 88 Royale convertible is ready for restoration and its one-of-2,883 built according to Stanley. Also, who cuold resist a 1963 Mercury Marauder fastback priced at $2,500? 
  I bet a few dream cars are waiting in that field just for you. Good luck!
