For the past couple of days, I have spent a fair amount of time at the local car cemetery and recycling shop close to my home. (This is where our 4 wheeled friends end their days).Before the old cars were torn apart for spares and placed on top of each other, I had the pleasure of recording a lot of their doors, opening and closing. As they were rubbish anyway, I could really put all my weight into the closing, smashing and slamming, and not being scared of the monetary consequences.

All of the sounds contained within this library are from everyday cars. While some had a little bit of rattle and rust, or cheap and thin kind of sound to them, others had some nice, heavy, and convincing thump to them when they closed.
