Default Junkyard Finds

I remembered reading about a guy in France called La Gombe awhile back, and when searching for some info on him for another forum I came across some awesome cars in junkyards, and thought it might be thread worthy, plus since there are actually miatas in junkyards, I thought maybe you guys had stuff to share to.

I hope some of you have a more cultured car knowledge than I, because I dont know what some of these are.

Ill start with some of La Gombes collection.

I found a Ferrari 400 in a junkyard a few weeks ago.. I thought it was rough but not nearly as bad as any of those above..
