    That's an expensive machine to abandon. It reminds me of my Tonka Toy I had as a kid.

    I used to have one of those, and mine had the rust as well. Got it second hand

    Ha! The Tonka does look like the truck. The big truck was in a yard area of an abandoned gold mine. There was other heavy equipment that was just left when the mine closed. This big truck was on the edge of the property.

    I took these pics about 15 years ago in Portola Redwoods State Park. I wonder if it's still there? I should go back and check... if I can remember where I found it.

    This was out in the middle of a forest. Far from any roads.

    The Abandoned Vehicle Thread-portola-011f.jpg

    I wonder how this car got so far from the road? Maybe there was an old dirt road that went through the area some time in the past.

    The Abandoned Vehicle Thread-portola-012f.jpg

    Maybe this explains it...

    The Abandoned Vehicle Thread-portola-013f.jpg

    Nah, I think nearby campers probably tossed their empties in. I doubt the cans would have outlasted the rest of the car.

    That Tonka Truck was designed to copy that big dump truck. A very popular toy in the 70's and 80's and is still made today. Although the original ones were tough steel just like the real thing. Today's version is crappy cheap plastic.

    I remember having one when I was a kid and it was bomb proof. In the end, it was rust that got it, from being left outside in mud and dirt.

    My kids had one a few years ago and it was as you said.. cheap plastic. It didn't last long.

    I've still got my 8 piece set from the late 60s/early 70s, hauled them around in a number of house moves. Just started handing them down to young nephews. I told the parents if the kids don't want to play with them to sell them on e-bay 'cause you can't buy that quality anymore!

    First pic at bottom of Car Wreck trail in Aliso&Woods Canyon Park, Socal. Someone told me it's an old Volvo. Since it never rains here anymore it's not badly rusted at all, just half burried from some long ago storms.

    I just went through the whole thread and can't believe these weren't posted. These two cars are just off a fireroad at Almaden Quicksilver Park in San Jose, CA. Used to be an old mine and these may have been old miners that lost it on the same turn.

    These are in Black Run Preserve. There's a Caprice that I haven't taken a pic of yet.

    This struck me as an S-10, parked in an old cranberry bog.

    Somewhere between Cloudcroft NM and Austin on I10.
    We stopped for gas and station was boarded up with this in front.
    I proceeded to slipstream a semi for 60 MILES! till the next town with gas light on. Dude was pissed and slammed his brakes just before town. In town we ran in to the guy again and told thanked him for saving our azz and sorry for tailgating but we were on fumes and he saved us. It was over 100 degrees out and I would have had to pedal to the next town while the gf and dogs cooked in the heat. He apologized for slamming breaks. Close call. Always gas up early on i 10 between El Paso and SA.

    Found this one on a singletrack 15 minutes away from my home, late fifties is my guess but no crest or model plate left so no idea what make and model it is.
