    ya, ya, you are right. good eye. that thing at the bottom center is the distributor. the metal plate on the side of the block covers the cam and the pushrods. the distributor is on the same shaft as the oil pump, and that somewhat vertical shaft is turned by a gear on the horizontal cam shaft. all those thingys on top are rocker arms. they open the valves.

    Sometimes the cement truck gets stuck... permanently. This is near Folsom Lake, and not in an area that is easy for a cement truck to get in or out of.

    Got a new one today... this guy had to have been placed here due to raging waters. No other explanation. Spotted off the American River near Auburn. No roads nearby. Ford? Chevy?

    It looks like a 56 Chevy, but it's hard to tell for sure without seeing a picture from a different angle.

    Thats a 1964-1966 Chevy/GMC truck cab. It looks like it's seen better days!

    The running light housing isn't right for a '56 chevy (the one that looked like a ford). I'm thinking 56 Ford:

    I saw this while riding on a bike path along the beach. I watched the owner collecting debris from the beach. It dragged its anchor in a storm and he could not get the engine started in time to save her. Very sad.

    Wow, this is my favorite thing, finding old wrecked vehicles. I have tons of pictures of old wrecked cars and farm equipment, I'll post a couple favorites.


    This is in one of my favorite places in upstate NY, someone might recognize it? If the Nature Conservancy ever removes this truck I will be really upset!


    Have to apologize for the poor quality of this one, took it a few years ago with a crummy phone. I had stumbled upon a whole graveyard of wrecks behind an old farm a few miles from my house, several years ago when I rode along a powerline that had been bulldozed clear for maintenance trucks to access. This 50's Chevy panel van was one of the more intact ones, along with the similar vintage Chevy dump truck next to it. I'll have to go back again in the fall with a real camera.

    There's a couple on my local trail system, Water Dog Lake Park.

    This is a truck buried in the trail, with incorporated bridge:

    This is an old english car, not sure what kind. I only know it's english because the headlights say Lucas Electric.

    And this one was from this Sunday, it's a 90's Cavalier exactly like my sister's ugly green one, except in much worse shape, and upside down, and with a big chunk kinda ripped off because I was dragging it around with my Jeep a few years ago.
