Texas junkyard only accepts remains of classic cars.

What started as a hobby has turned into a career for David Williamson and his brother Allen.

The Williamsons make their living while restoring bits of history.

They own CTC Auto Ranch, which isn't an average junk yard.

The salvage yard in Denton, Texas has gained world-wide attention for the types of cars it collects.

"If these cars could talk, I bet some of them could really tell a tale," says Allen Williamson, who remembers his father buying and selling old cars growing up.

The rusted cars and their parts are all classics, and according to Williamson were made in the '30s, '40s and '70s.

"It's kind of like walking into an antique store. To some people, it's going to be junk. To us, it's something to put something back on the road with. Make someones dream come true with," says David's brother Allen.

The vintage salvage yard attracts classic car fans from all over the world like Nick Vandanhemel and his father who are from the Netherlands.

"It is quite a different world," said Vandanhemel. "I was looking for some parts for my Mustang that is '69."

"The most common phrase I hear here is, 'I've died and gone to heaven,'" said David about his salvage yard.
