    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.

    Nome AK aircraft and gold mining history

    Dredge # 3, a large bucketline dredge, last operated in the 30s. I suppose you can call it a vehicle, a barge, that traveled under it's own power with cables and winches, moving it's pond as it went. The twin engine aircraft is one of two of this type abandoned in Nome. I know nothing about them, but suspect they were used to carry passengers and freight in the 40s and 50s.

    Ran across these pix in my collection this evening. Both vehicles were recently abandoned.

    We ran into the guy who had abandoned the Jeep pickup as he was hiking about three miles down the trail. Apparently the previous night had involved some drunk 4-wheeling on an unfamiliar road.

    The skid marks were still fresh and the radio still playing in the Ranger pickup when we came upon it, but a 30 minute search turned up no occupant, so he must have thumbed into town.

    That is an amphibious landing craft vehicle from WWII called an "LVT' The track rollers and that round piece are a dead giveaway.

    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    I viewed all 12 pages and there are a couple missing with national recognition. I have photos of my bike and friends with the first listed below on my hard drive but would have to do some digging.

    1. MOAB, UT. Kokopeli entrance to Porcupine Rim. Photo Op #1, there is an old beat down Model T. I've ridden Porc Rim a couple times a year, every year since '05. Each time, that beater is being photographed by like minded mtbr's.

    2. Alaska. Don't know this exact location but there was a thread on MTBR some years back about guys who journeyed up to the spot using rafts and Pugsleys. The bus from Into The Wild.

    In reference to my earlier post and some follow-up guesses that this might be a tank. Here are 4 fresh pictures (of each side). I guess my only reason for being skeptical is the yellow paint. Who in the heck paints a tank school bus yellow? Anyway...here you go...

    So I was going to come clean and say, oh, huffster, i was just joshing with you, of course that isn't a tank, it's just some kind of paving equipment. But then, look at all those photos, and then watch Saving Private Ryan. It looks like an amphibious landing craft, albeit fairly small. That ramp is made to drop down so people can jump out, and close up when it is imitating a boat. As far as being yellow, yeah, that is weird. Maybe some kind of tourist company bought it and rode people around in it? Or it was used at a base for training exercises?

    That other thing is a conveyor belt.

    Because it was easier to cut than the lock was
