Supercar Blondie stunned by Dubai scrapyard filled with luxury vehicles

YouTuber ‘Supercar Blondie’ was shocked to see all of the leftover luxury cars from the lavish streets of Dubai that all ended in the same junkyard, and some were reselling for insanely low prices.

Whether it’s vehicles that were completely destroyed in a collision or just an owner who left the country and couldn’t take their Ferrari California T back home with them, there were tons of supercars that “go to rest” in the lots of Dubai.

Blondie was astonished at the hidden treasures she was coming across in the junkyard, although not all of them were in mint condition.

“There’s nothing wrong with this one,” Blondie said, examining a California T that was apparently faultless on the outside. “There are other cars, over the years, that have literally been abandoned by owners on the side of a road because they couldn’t pay their debts and had to leave the country straight away. So you’ve got cars like this, and then you have cars like this.”

Her gaze switched to a nearby 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith, which Blondie found can go as cheap as $125,000, but, because of the absolute wrecked state this one was in, it was selling for $2.

A Rolls-Royce Wraith that looked decent on the inside, but an absolute disaster on the outside.

That would only be the start of the tragic supercar collection in the fields of Dubai, which also included a 2015 Lamborghini Huracan, a 2015 Mercedes GTS, and a 2006 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.

One of the YouTuber’s most impressive finds was a white G-Wagon that caught her by surprise.

Though the outside was covered in dirt from its environment, the off-road Mercedes SUV was in near perfect condition on the inside.

“Oh my god, that is crazy,” she said after seeing the Carbon Fiber trim and the glass panel dashboard intact. “Look at how good condition this is. Not somewhere you would expect to find a brand new G-Wagen in this kind of condition here in a scrapyard.”

The lot was expectedly filled with junkers that have no chance of going back to the streets, but Blondie was just amazed at the vast array of supercars that were gathering dust in the Dubai depot.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
