    Still salvageable. Dragged from its grave and restored some day hopefully.


    Rural road in Colorado I presume?

    It's only a Hybrid POS, as long as someone guts the solid waste from it it will be fine where it sits.

    Abandoned Vehicle thread's been blown up
    Cotton Belt railroad car that is mostly buried in berry bushes. I'm guessing it was used for logging.

    A VW beetle I'd ridden past probably 100 times before spotting it.

    A rusty old frame that I snagged from my after work riding spot that's now yard art.

    I have no photos to add, but many years ago as a kid at summer camp, we walked from Occidental California to the coast. The 2 lane road down out of the hills had some sketchy turns and there were wrecks over the sides of quite a few. Most had only slid maybe 20 feet. However, coming upon the sketchiest turn of all, we thought there must be at least a couple cars that had run off the road. Sure enough, not only was the turn sketchy, but it had an epic drop behind it too. Looking over the side we counted not one, not two, but three cars-- and the cherry on top was a Toyota that had landed dead center in a tree, and the tree had grown around it. You could imagine the flight path it must have taken, and the terror of the occupants as it took it's 3 second airborne journey.

    I built a recumbent bike frame jig using the other parts. I still have that up above my garage!

    Earth Mover!
    Here is a 1964 Hancock 282(GM) Pan Scraper, abandoned by a guy who thought he could speculate on what he thought was "free" land, while carving-out an illegal, 27-mile fire road, including an airport runway! This machine rests over 1900 feet, high on a desert mountaintop.

    As a kid growing-up for years - I could hear this crazy man run his machines all day long. The BLM finally chased him away(Bighorn Sheep habitat) and he simply ditched this earth mover sometime in 1975:

    That was actually part of my joke. Few cars in today's era of cars will ever be worthy of the classic monicker.

    Spotted this the other day near a few jumps, don't think this took 30 years to rust, maybe 25


    Looks like it died an honourable death before being pillaged for parts
