What happens to the cars that are sold to Carneys?

Simply we sell the best parts and recycle the rest. All parts cars and scrap cars will be drained of all fluids and refringent. Batteries, tires and mercury switches are removed. They will be stored until sold or disposed of according to EPA/DNR regulations. The final stage for all cars is they are crushed and hauled to a site where they are shredded and the metals are separated. That shredded metal is then shipped by rail or barge to a foundry where the shredded metal is melted, turning them back its original state. That metal can then be used in the manufacturing of anything from refrigerators to automobiles to hair pins.
