Above is just a few of the thousands upon thousands of unsold cars at Sheerness, United Kingdom. Please do see this on Google Maps....type in Sheerness, United Kingdom. Look to the west coast, below River Thames next to River Medway. Left of A249, Brielle Way.

There are hundreds of places like this in the world today and they keep on piling up...

Here in USA we tax people to destroy them.
Not this crap again.
How do the car companies stay in business? Are they “Too Big to Fail”? Oh, I think I have it! The taxpayers are subsidizing the industry. Maybe folks that pay taxes should get a nice car at reduced prices. Oh wait a minute! I lost my head for a minute! That wouldn’t be fair to those poor souls that don’t pay any taxes. Oh well, just let em rust away.
not a single Toyoto in the bunch.
If they have any trucks...I’ll take one for 5 grand.
66 Vette? Better tax the people to destroy it and start a propaganda war to sell them a chevy volt
Oh ad a tax on that as a an incentive
Tax the guy that does not want one and subsidize the smug earth huffin jackass’s.
According to the law of supply and demand, the prices are too high.
There have to be unnatural incentives at play.
May be just a coincidence?
The peasants thought differently.
Since when did people get a “new car every year”?
Buy now from the discount channels.
Costco sells cars. At below - far below - invoice costs.
People buying from the dealerships are getting porked, especially on soft merchandise.
Buy low. Dont pay high.
Costco doesnt sell cars
There is a much smaller version of this just west of Baton Rouge, LA. It’s a tad southwest of the first major I-10 intersection/exchange west side the Miss. River. They load them on rail cars there, but I’ve seen that yard so full at certain times that I doubt they could get another car parked in there.
They do in California
Costco doesnt sell cars
One is reminded of the scene from “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, part of “Fantasia”, where Mickey has turned the broom into a bucket-carrier, hauling in buckets of water, and multiplied its numbers endlessly, in a failed attempt to stop the mindless hauling of water.
That did not end well.
Call it whatcha want...its a channel
Think about it. . . . material from cars for ? in the future should a certain industry go under or is unable to manufacture.
So’s a dealership. Costco sells cars.
IDK if I believe this. I took a look at google maps of Upper Heyford, because I used to be stationed there, and you can see that some areas used to have cars but don’t anymore. So maybe in some cases it is temporary storage.
This is a conspiracy theorist writing ....
Are those all cars from the same model year, or from several different years? Same model year, and it is probably temporary. If there are different model years on the same lot, then I think there is a problem.
Costco doesnt sell cars.
If you call a tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?
So I did. There are many cars there... right next to a port facility. Google Earth has a history feature which allows one to view older satellite imagery (if it exists) and guess what? There have been many cars at that location going back to 1990. They are obviously importing or exporting cars from that location, but they clearly aren't just storing them there "to die."
Photoshop hoax alert!
Yep....only we have more fun than Clark! :D
Costco sells caskets, tho. Car=casket....may mean the same thing for some folks.
Now, now, just because you can buy something somewhere doesn’t mean they sell that thing there...
Thread from yesterday....... if anyone is interested in the 100+ comments
Where the World’s Unsold Cars Go To Die
Go by most any port in the US and you’ll see lots full of unsold cars. Same
at the auto manufactures locations, auto auctions have acres of unsold cars.
“Now, now, just because you can buy something somewhere doesnt mean they sell that thing there...”
You don’t buy cars at Costco ...
