More Type 3 in Pearson's Auto Wrecking, Mariposa CA 1995 Posted: Mon Sep 02, 2019 8:17 pm     Views: 28      Rating: Not rated

Driving on CA highway 49 between Oakhurst and Mariposa (west of Yosemite) in the spring of 1995 I caught glimpses of old VWs through the trees to the west of the highway. Then lots of American old cars from the 50's and '60's. I turned into Pearson's main entrance and asked if I could take some photos of their classics, being from NY and usually only seeing much newer cars in our local yards which were much more severely rusted. Pearson's had 2 large groves of ACVW including Type 3s, numerous Beetles, even a Type 4. Other unusual cars were Renault Dauphine, 1950's Rover sedan, a few Borgward sedans and wagons, even a Crosley. Wonderful experience.
