Junk in the Trunk Tuesday!

 Today's junk is by way of Texas, once again. I told Ya'll that Texas is the junk capital. We are visiting the Cathedral of Junk. The owner of this property is Vince “Junk King" Hannemann has been collecting other people’s junk in his backyard since 1989. Over the past several years, he has constructed a massive “Cathedral of Junk”, much to the amusement and fascination of locals. It has become a tourist attraction. In 2010 the city closed the structure claiming it was unsafe and demanded Hannemann obtain proper building permits for his “auxiliary structure”.  Last year the Cathedral was in danger of demolition and it got down to the wire. Luckily, Vince found the engineer, the lawyers, and architect and an army of volunteers moved 40 tons of junk out of the easement and he got his permit.
