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

    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.

    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:

    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

    I have seen several good photo opportunities to shot Abandoned Vehicles on the trail, but rarely stop to take advantage of the opportunity. My bad.

    Not boring at all, but rather interesting to think about. All of the vehicles look like old models. Makes you wonder what they did up above on that curve to stop these sorts of wrecks that must have been taking place some time in the past. You think they just left them because it was too much trouble/expense to pull them out after they rescued or retrieved the crash victims? Where is this BTW?

    Up in the Avenue of The Giants we stumbled upon this old, shot up Ford. My son's dog had fun kicking around in it too.

    The abandoned car at the link above in Silver City, Idaho was actually modified to drive an ore lift for a small mine -- you just don't see that part of the picture.

    Once the mine was abandoned I guess the car could be considered abandoned.

    Looks like there is a bike behind the bike... and probably a sniper too.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Woah! It's got a 12 speed Eagle on it!

    JK, is that some type of animal visible back in the woods, just behind the seat?

    second bike or something up there. handlebar above the seat?

    What sort of saddle is that? looks like it'd be an interesting convo piece for an old road bike resto.
