I've been there a couple times, but don't know if some of the cars were consigned or not. They would charge you a dollar to enter the gate and drive the outer perimeter to see the cars that sat outside. If you wanted to look at one, you had to go to the office to get someone to go with you. Keep sticky fingers at bay.

Okay, I just went to the website, and they do have cars on consignment. Holy crap.

He was pretty proud of a lot of the junkers out in the lot.

Here's a couple more links to the story. Been by there many times, only stopped once to look around. Nice people.

This place is about 50 mi north of me. I drove by often on the interstate next to the business. I went through it a few times. Naturally the nicest cars were inside. Many of the cars outside have been in there for years. I expect it was the same inside. As the photos of the burned cars shows, they were parked very close together. They were parked for storage, not viewing.
