AutomotiveDVD - 2007
An average new car lasts 12 years. Every year millions of them come to the end of the road. Their fate? The junkyard, the scrapheap, the shredder, the crusher. In short, the boneyard. Americans' love affair with the automobile generally ends at the boneyard's gate, but many retired road warriors have a useful afterlife, whether recycled into new products, resurrected by devoted gearheads or assembled into replicas of Stonehenge. In this entertaining and often surprising episode, you'll learn what happens to autos once they've driven their final mile.
