Step Inside Junk Man Jake's Paradise

...otherwise known as Hot Sam's Antiques and Foto Park.

If one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, then Hot’s Sam’s junkyard theme park would be the ultimate vault. From planes, trains and automobiles to rockets, spaceships and landspeeders, owner and creator Jake Hood – the self-proclaimed “Junk Man” – says he’s always been a sucker for junk. Jake has been in the junk game for so long that junk now has a magnetic way of finding him.
