its called Beetle Barn, on the east side of I-77, just 1/2mi before I-70 exit when heading north. i walked the yard last year, he wasnt open, and everything had been picked over as far as beetles. did see some bays, ghias, type 3s. i stopped and talked to the man about 12 years ago, but dont remember much of the conversation. theres no telling what he's got stashed in the barn (huge) though. he would have to keep stuff locked and hidden to keep interstate travelers from walking the yard while he's not there!

i heard about that place about 10 maybe 15 years ago, i have never been there but have always wanted to go see what all he has/had
and now that im not able to drive long distances alone i may never get up that way

there was another place i past all the time between 1982 and 1990 while driving to Brookville lake Indiana from Cincy, probably 100 or so VW's of all types, i havent heard if it is still there, but if i ever get out near Brookville i will try to find it, i doubt if it is still there as last time i was out that way about 10 years ago i tried to find it but couldnt see any trace of a field filled with nothing but VW's, then again all the fields were grown over with tree's and weed's 10 feet tall or more, they could just be hidden in the weeds

i drove past it a lot in my travels from back home to where i live now here in Wheeling. Looked promising with a lot of cars and some other vehicles than T1 s but i always heard the guy was an ass to deal with. how the hell can someone come up on so many cars and NOT be a cool car guy. its alwals the same here in WV, you get total dicks owning all these and they wont come off of anything unless its priced its weight out in gold. its like they would rather watch them rust instead of seeing someone give them the proper attention and put them back on the road. rant over.

it is strange that so many old cars just set and rot with out ever getting a chance back on the road . and it seams like the owner / hoarders just dont care at all . yet they died and the family or children just end up with scrape to get rid of. sad real sad . i hope to get up by this vw junk yard soon and at least take photos . maybe i can post some if i can get some photos
