Junkyard offers the only known photographic documentation of car collector Rudi Klein's famed stockpile of distraught - but rare and valuable - vehicles from Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Maserati, and more.

In 1967, Rudi Klein began quietly buying up wrecked, damaged, and worn-out high-end European cars under the business moniker "Foreign Auto Wrecking." Over time, he amassed a stunning collection of treasures. Among the stash is a one-of-one 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K built for pre-war Mercedes racer Rudolf Caracciola. No one is precisely sure what other prizes rest behind the yard's not-open-to-the-public gates. Some 20 years ago, and after much negotiation, photographer Dieter Rebmann and author Roland Lowisch were permitted rare entree to the salvage yard's grounds to document its residents. Sadly, Rudi passed away in 2001, but the collection remains under the care of his sons, who operate it as elusively as their father, maintaining its decades-long air of mystery and desirability.

This record of Klein's collection is nothing short of amazing for any classic and collector car enthusiast.
