Abandoned Auto Shop is a spooky time capsule from the late 90s

There’s something to be said for taking care of your business, and cars are obviously no exception. Some rides certainly live better than others, but there’s little explanation for the mysterious abandonment of a pristine car. Yes, there is an AMC dealership still in operation, but at least the story behind these vehicles is resolved, unlike the cars in today’s video. Here is a group of mostly 90s cars, frozen in time, discovered by the Engrave Youtube channel.

No location is provided for the find, which is probably for the best. It’s unclear what the status of these vehicles is, and at least one ended up with the keys still in the ignition. The assortment seems to be mostly Oldsmobile sedans – an odd focus, although there’s also the odd Peugeot, some 70s metal and at least an older Plymouth. There appear to be at least three dozen cars in and around the decaying facility, apparently parked one day and never recovered.

As mentioned before, it’s mainly a lot of Oldsmobiles, but there’s also a lot of automotive literature. Various repair manuals, VHS tapes and many other related documents were found in other areas of the workshop. There’s also a box of copies of a book called “Cartera”, which has a creepy cover to go with the creepy music that accompanies the video.

The best of the bunch is probably the Peugeot 505 STI we see at the start of the video, the red Ford coupe with matching red interior (which still has its key in the ignition) and the 1969 Ford Fairlane 500.

Either way, I recommend watching this video only once because it has some seriously creepy vibes. Yes, it’s an old warehouse full of Oldsmobiles. It’s cool, but also scarier than I would like. View at your own discretion.
