LOL. When I went to Road Atlanta to check it out last august, actually to pick up seats from a member that lives around the area, I saw this place and me and my dad were in heaven. Parts galore doesn’t even describe that inventory, but yea, it's a place to see because of how many shells they have. When we left I had forgotten the name and put it in my phone as BMW Graveyard. There is just a regular fence blocking it with an entrance in the front, but it’s amazing some of the brae shells to wrecked cars they had in their possession.

Wow, that's quite an inventory they have. I wonder how they keep track of it all.

I would almost be willing to say that they dont.

REALLY cool. I love old "abandoned" photoshoots like that. This is now easily one of my favorites.

This is a great way for all BMW to live out their retirement and they can all share stories about their owner (or owners)...

I am kinda curious to what a BMW take of a "ratrod" would look like now...
i.e. working powertrain, but unrestored body

I have always suspected there might be a Valhalla of old BMWs, where those who fought valiantly go to rest. Good to know that some of the the cars are reincarnated or used for transplants. Many thanks for the documentary images and to Bobby Thrash.

Get those American Pickers guys in there. I'm pretty sure they can find something valuable in there.
