Ghost town with a decaying car collection/museum that's been pilfered for years

Learned about this in Motor Trend Classic, spring 2012 issue, and the same photos are used on Jalopnik  but in a nutshell, a ghost town tourist destination and annual sheep wool gathering contest had a small collection of cars that no one took care of. This is the obvious and inevitable result.
These photos were taken last week by a member who visited the museum in Shaniko, Ore., when it opened in the 1970s, and had last dropped in nine years ago. Where the original museum was "pristine," the barn holding the cars now appears to be neglected; there's no power, the walls have holes and the windows are gone
