Classic gallery: the car graveyard
Stroll through a strange German's collection of 50 car corpses

Each one of the cars has got its own story, too. Fröhlich was eager to add a Citroën ‘Traction Avant' to his collection too. But it turned out to be difficult to find a 1950-car. When he finally found one, he offered the man the 1,500 Deutsche Mark asking price for it, sight unseen.
The vendor said he'd just had a better offer and was about to sell the car to the other bidder. Fröhlich raised his price considerably. The vendor thought there was something valuable hidden inside so totally dismantled it. Fröhlich still bought it, put it back together and parked it in the middle of his field.
