Long-running negotiations have resulted in the first ever acquisition by media giant Clunkbucket - the premier destination for finding, fixing, restoring, and even racing your unloved or forgotten classic car. Clunkbucket set out to become the global destination for budget restoration and inexpensive motoring entertainment in 2009, and is excited about upping the frequency of junkyard journeys into the editorial calendar. All content on Junkyard Chronicle will eventually be republished on Clunkbucket, with bonus content added when applicable.
"If by documenting one automobile at the end of its road helps a few more of its kind avoid being crushed into oblivion, then our work preserving automotive and cultural history is done. Clunkbucket is here to keep the automotive restoration and preservation economy rolling one old car, truck, or minivan at a time", said Clunkbucket Founder and Editor-in-Chief Mike Bumbeck.
Junkyard Chronicle was established in 2006 as a way to peer into automotive cultural history by way of the self-service automotive junkyards of Southern California. Junkyard Chronicle will remain active until financial negotiations are complete, at which point the site will be fully integrated into behemoth Clunkbucket. This virtually seamless media acquisition will result in a far more streamlined Clunkbucket content delivery experience moving forward into and beyond Q3 2010.
Clunkbucket is your home for everything but the same old cars. While it makes us sad to see automobiles at the end of their road, knowing that automotive history will live on recycled secures our future.
