Hello VW Fans.

I was in California in 2016 and visited the Interstate VW junkyard in Lake Elsinore.

The junkyard has vintage VW cars and parts for Beetle, T2 Bus, Karmann Ghia and Type 3 for sale. It is located at Interstate Used Parts & Auto Sales, 18181 Collier Ave, Lake Elsinore, CA 92530, USA.

It is one of the last VW only wrecking yards in California. The owner is long in business and knows the prices of the old parts, so do not expect to get the parts cheap.

Anyway, it is amazing to see a VW junkyard like this in the deserts of California.

The Interstate junkyard is about 65 miles from Los Angeles and you can see most in about 30-60 minutes. A good route is from Los Angeles to Interstate VW to Joshua Tree NP for sunset.
