    An illegal dump under the EPA, the owner should be prosecuted and the site cleared! I somewhat hope he does try and prosecute somebody, he may well find the tables turned. People who defile natural habitats like this really make me angry, but unfortunately because it is off the beaten track, it and a number of similar eyesores are allowed to fester. Many legitimate businesses with sites that were full of really old and valuable vehicles, went out of business and were bulldozed flat when they could not afford to meet the new requirements of the EPA. Those of us who were running old or classic vehicles at the time usually lost a valuable source of cheap local spares.

    Sad to see that old Defender in that state. They still sell for a fair bit.
