The Guerbetal Historical Junkyard – The Kaufdorf Car Junkyard – A Lifetime of Abandoned Cars

The Guerbetal Historical Junkyard better known as the Kaufdorf Car Junk Yard in Switzerland.

This junk yard had over 1,000 cars and 400 motorcycles all ranging between 1930’s and 1970’s. Walter Messerli originally bought them for their parts beginning in 1933 and later passing the business down to his son.

On Google Maps the car lot is as pictured in the final picture. It shows the cars still there, but according to Kaufdorf County there was a court order put in to have the cars removed from the land in 2008. The cars were slowly removed and auctioned off in 2009 and the rest that were not bought were discarded.
