    Here are a couple new finds. Please feel free to identify them.

    Located at Graham Hills Park in Pleasantville, NY (near the bottom of red trail):
    Attachment 941045

    Located at Wildcat Ridge WMA in Rockaway, NJ (about 100 yards off the orange trail):
    Attachment 941046

    The 1st one still had the motor, which seems to be a rarity. The 2nd one was a beauty in its day!

    Not sure if this one is abandoned, or just currently out of service. Its located near a lake beach that's been closed since Hurricane Irene Attachment 942483

    1971 Plymouth GTX 440. This car is mostly intact. All the glass is there and the motor with the triple deuce carbs. Too bad it is left to rot. Attachment 944021

    Ha, are you on private property? Something like that wouldn't stay intact around a public trail around here.

    That car is worth pulling out and saving. Plenty of collectors would want that. The carbs alone are worth a bundle.

    Yea, I did look inside. ;) No bodies that I could see. Some torn fabric hanging there and other crap. It's a friggin bizzarre wreck anyways. Surrounded by huge old spruces with a couple of ravens croaking somewhere above. Slight horror movie vibes indeed. Van's come down a really lousy forest "road", more like a trail, and straight into a big rock. That road or trail or whatever it is goes nowhere, it just ends up there with nothing, nowhere to go.

    Cool it is.

    Also would make a pretty decent vehicle for the coming zombie apocalypse, Mad Max style.

    The first one is down by University Falls by Georgetown, California
    Attachment 954430

    and I found this dump truck exploring the trails beyond University Falls, this was on loop road off of Wentworth Springs Road. Looks to be in pretty good shape on the out side. but the seats on the inside of the truck are only springs. the truck and the land out there belonged to the University of Berkeley

    There was a story in a local vintage car club mag a few years ago about the recovery of a 20's Chev roadster from way up a river, it took several attempts to recover it with 4wds over a couple of summers.
    Then the guy who'd driven it there popped up recounting his epic journey, discarding useless ballast like doors etc along the way :)

    Haha! that's awesome. Apparently there were 4x4 trails around where this beetle was, but still can't believe it made it this far. I think most of the missing "Ballast" from this one was burgled afterward. can't imagine lugging the engine, and interior from the bug out of the bush!

    Back in the day, we used to off-road our Bugs right along side our buddies' Jeeps. You'd be surprised where you could go in a Beetle, especially if you didn't care about it very much. I can tell you that they really did float.
