You're probably better off getting one or two junk cars at a time and then sell them for parts on ebay. You can do that, right in your back yard if you have the room. If you have a tow truck, most people will give you the car for nothing if they have to get it off of their property. Now, if you are just trying to make money through scrap metal, Right now is a bad time to set up a scrap yard, because scrap prices fell. Over the summer, scrap prices were through the roof.
