    Yeah you could abandon that vehicle in my driveway anytime. Just leave the title on the seat and the keys in the switch in case I have to move it.
    Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised

    huffster that thing is beautiful, is it yours?
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    In my dreams. Sometimes I like to play the identification game when I see these old vehicles. So, I got it as a Wagoneer, but I'm guessing a little bit at the year. The sweet restored one is a google pic of a '70.

    This is seriously one of the coolest threads ever on MTBR, love it!! I have never come across an abandoned car, but I have seen on old washing machine in the woods. Not sure why someone would go through the effort of dragging something like that into the middle of nowhere.

    I guess boats can be vehicles to- here's some boats that have been scattered by "sandy' at the shore-this is just a small sample

    Pity! I guess some people can afford to throw them away! Some look as if the storage plastic is still on them?

    Salvaging boats off the beach like that is expensive. They are probably waiting on their insurance companies to step up. They may also not be seaworthy after being beaten up and running aground during the storm. Being here in Florida for some bad storms, I've seen enough of this. Sometimes its a daunting task just to locate the owner, or for the owner to locate his boat.

    So does that become "Finders keepers"?

    I'm not familiar with all the maritime salvage laws, but in some instances, it most certainty does.

    I've been going through a ton of old pics and discovered a few I haven't posted before.

    The first one is not that old, but I liked it because it is a Mercury Montego wagon (early 70's). This big old boat is what my first car was. Paid $200.

    Any body know what the last one is? I don't. Found on Ringwood-Ramapo trail near Shepherd's Pond - if that helps.

    awesome montego. you can see the kinship with the starsky and hutch-mobile.
    then, no idea. thought it might be a capri, but the c-pillar base has a 50's look.
    next, a 30's school bus. love that old grille.
    last one, is, i think, a ransacked one of these

    i may be wrong, and it might just be some kind of paving equipment. it's obviously an implement of some kind, but doesn't look suited to a field.

    I added another pic on the Montego. Starsky and Hutch didn't have the rear jumpseat like the Montego did!!!

    As for this thing that might be a tank, I haven't been on this trail in a long time. Now I'm gonna have to find my way back there sometime for a closer look. If/when that happens...I'll add more pics. Its not too far from a recreation area, so it could be an abandoned paver of some kind.

    the back seat was the best place to ride. look out the window and watch the world go by.
