INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Hundreds of vehicles destine for the scrap heap are filling what once was the outfield of the former minor league baseball stadium in Indianapolis.
A salvage company is leasing the Bush Stadium field from the city parks department to store vehicles it collected in the federal Cash for Clunkers program.
Parks department real estate manager Paul Smith tells television station WTHR that about 300 cars, trucks and minivans are packed tightly on the field by the company, which is paying the city $2,000 a month.
Bush Stadium opened in 1931 and has gone largely unused since the Indianapolis Indians moved in 1996 to the downtown Victory Field.
Smith says the city has been waiting for ideas for the decaying stadium's future, but welcomes the revenue in the meantime.
