6. What on earth happens to all of these cars? Are they eventually bought?
Edited on Thu Nov-20-08 12:27 AM by chalky
Sold for parts? Squashed into cubes? What?

I remember a few years back someone posted a similar story about Hummers, along with a picture showing a sea of them taking over a nearby hotel parking lot. I wonder if those Hummers are still gathering dust in that hotel lot.
