David Goldman's auto photography essay of 'Old Car City' in Georgia has something for everyone to appreciate -- car fanatics, historians, forest-lovers and artists alike. The images showcase classic cars that were once beloved and beautiful, now in their junkyard home, fathered by Walter Dean Lewis.

'Old Car City' started as a general store in 1931 selling used car parts, and since then, over 4,000 cars have piled up in its backyard. As of six years ago, Walter Dean Lewis finally stopped selling parts and transitioned it into a car-graveyard museum of sorts. If Goldman's auto photography entices you to see the place for yourself, Lewis charges $15 a person and $25 for photographers.

The images include a 1948 Oldsmobile 98 convertible, a 1950s school bus, 32 acres of surrounding forest and a display of the classiest hand-doodled foam cup collection you've ever seen.
