How You Can Have Fun with a Junk Car

The primary benefit of owning a car is that travel is made more accessible. That means no more commuting, waiting around for your ride home or your next destination, and cramped spaces in public transportation. However, nothing in this world is permanent, and there will come an unfortunate time when a car is beyond repair. At this point, it’s now considered junk.

Junk cars may be useless, but there are still some ways that you can have fun with them in a safe manner. Read on below to learn more.

Smash It!

Admit it—you’ve always wanted to grab a baseball bat and smash a car, in true city-plunged-into-anarchy style. Now that you’ve got a junk car in your garage, what’s stopping you? 

Smash away, and maybe throw in some shouts along the way. Smashing stuff is an effective form of therapy, and you shouldn’t let anyone tell you otherwise. 

Trick It Out

Just because it’s a junk car doesn’t mean it can’t be used for creative expression. If the body is still mostly intact, why not add some light yet heavy-duty wheels? It will look like a car that’s fitted with horse carriage wheels. 

If that’s not your style, how about adding in pedals and chains so that it’s still functional? When it comes to customizing cars, even junk ones, your imagination is the only limit.

Repurpose It into a Fort

A junk car that’s out for display in your front yard is sure to make your neighbors give you the side-eye, or maybe a complaint or two from them. To prevent this, you can repurpose it by adding an awesome fort. Kids will surely adore you if you let them play in it, so you have to ensure that it’s safe.

Open Area Drifting

Like smashing cars, drifting around recklessly in a car is also a fantasy for many people. If your junk car is on the verge of breaking down, you can now do this. The only place you can drift around aimlessly is a secluded yet open area because you surely don’t want to become a nuisance for your neighbors.

Absolute (Safe) Carnage

Another fantasy for many people is to blow up cars, just as seen in the movies. Luckily, you can now do this with a junk car. Again, do this in an open, secluded area because you will be handling explosives, which can harm other people if something goes awry.

An Excellent Halloween Decoration

If you still have your junk car during the Halloween season, but you don’t have any decorations, then it will be the perfect decoration for your home. You can add plastic spiders, webs, and even plastic skeletons placed in the seats for a genuine, spooky effect. 

Liven It Up with Colors

If you have a junk car yet can do any of the other things mentioned above on this list, you should go for more straightforward solutions, such as painting on it. Spray paints would be your buddy in this regard since spray paint is one way of painting a car.

Sell Your Junk Car

If you want to get rid of your junk car as soon as possible, then your best bet is to get in touch with a scrap car dealer. There’s no actual price for junk cars since the market is constantly changing, but a scrap car dealer can give you a fair price for your junk car.


A junk car may be useless, but it’s not entirely so because you can still reuse it or maybe hasten the wearing-down process. Apart from the creative ideas above, you can also talk to a scrap dealer if you want to rid yourself of your junk car as soon as possible.
