About Us


Junkyard Mob is an uncensored automotive history, news, entertainment, and opinion site. We cover cars, boats, planes, bikes, and virtually anything else with gears. Junkyard Mob is an independent site founded by everyday car enthusiasts who love tinkering with junkyard machines and Craigslist cars. Junkyard Mob focuses on cars that real people drive, and other cool stuff that we (and out readers) come across.

In other words, we’re a glorified car blog built by some college kids with a copious amount of HTML and Red Bull.

Hey! My name is Matt, and I am the founder of JunkyardMob - a website I created that focuses mainly on vintage cars & trucks, but covers really anything with gears!

As a classic car junkie, I've been around cars all my life, but it wasn't until I was in college that I became passionate about them.

I started off just wanting to restore 1 vintage car, but it’s addicting and I found myself buying more and more classics. Over the years I've collected a multitude of cars, but I still have a few left to find!

The goal of this blog is not only to share information but also to build a community around classic cars.

So who is this website for?

The site is for anyone who has a classic car or wants to start learning and collecting them.

If you're new to buying classic cars, then this website will help you learn a lot about the dos and don’ts of buying one so that you can avoid the mistakes I've made.

Overall, I want to build a community that cares about classic cars. Let’s keep old cars out of the junkyard, and get them driving on the road!

If you have any questions or comments about your vintage car, feel free to contact me at matt@junkyardmob.com.
