    Pretty hard to tell the exact year from those pictures. 1973 was the first year that Ford had the trim down the side inset. 1972 and older had a raised trim strip. So they are at least 1973. They went to square headlights in 1978, so they are no newer than 1977.

    So, somewhere between 1973 and 1977 for the black one.

    If you are really curious, write down the VIN numbers and look them up. Just Google Ford VIN number ID and you can find out what factory they came out of.

    I thought this was a VW Rabbit, but after some googling, I'm pretty certain it is a mid 70s VW Scirocco.

    This F150 has been in this spot for 30 years that I know of. I felt like a dummy taking pics of it all the time but obviously you folks are into this sort of thing.

    i thought the VW might be a dasher, but it does look more like a scirocco now that i look at pictures of extant examples.

    p.s. i think i'm cool for using the word "extant".

    I vote Rabbit because of the steep angle of the back window

    It was actually that sharp angle that made me think Scirocco (see pic below of 1974 Scirocco).

    ^ back window glass on that looks like a match. Rabbit and Dasher glass looks wrong to your original image so I think you are correct.

    front end looks too stubby to me and I still think the back end looks steeper. Could it be that the car has had the crap kicked out of it? Maybe ?

    I like 11B's idea of the VIN grokker when you really want to know something specific.

    Here's a pic of a 1975. It has the same side marker light as the non-extant example in the photos from the woods.

    Older than that, 1978 had square headlights.

    i love that the old motorcycle is in an upright position.

    licious, old things like bridge foundations remind me how much the countryside has changed. there used to be a bridge there, and there used to be a road that led to it, and there used to be people who went across that bridge. all of those people's grandchildren now live in the city and have no idea how to grow their own food. now we drive a farther distance, at a much higher speed, to a much bigger bridge, and we never wonder if the big rain last night means that the bridge will be flooded this morning.

    I'm pretty sure that the old motorcycle is a yamaha judging by the indentation on the gas tank. Not sure which model though, I'm sure a guy who knows old yamahoppers could id it from the twin cyl engine
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    Here are two I found while biking in the Land Locked Forest in MA last summer. There were quite a few others but I'm unable to upload the photos.

    Came across this a while ago. Seems abandoned vehicles are a bit rare in Southern California. This one is in a creek bed off of some new trails in the Thousand Oaks area. I think it might be an early '60's Mercury Comet.

    Judging by all the holes, maybe it's Swiss?
