    ya, ya, you are right. good eye. that thing at the bottom center is the distributor. the metal plate on the side of the block covers the cam and the pushrods. the distributor is on the same shaft as the oil pump, and that somewhat vertical shaft is turned by a gear on the horizontal cam shaft. all those thingys on top are rocker arms. they open the valves.

    Something a little newer than the usual abandoned vehicle. Found at Stephen's State Park in Allamuchy Township, NJ

    Sometimes the cement truck gets stuck... permanently. This is near Folsom Lake, and not in an area that is easy for a cement truck to get in or out of.

    Got a new one today... this guy had to have been placed here due to raging waters. No other explanation. Spotted off the American River near Auburn. No roads nearby. Ford? Chevy?

    It looks like a 56 Chevy, but it's hard to tell for sure without seeing a picture from a different angle.

    Thats a 1964-1966 Chevy/GMC truck cab. It looks like it's seen better days!

    The running light housing isn't right for a '56 chevy (the one that looked like a ford). I'm thinking 56 Ford:

    I'm so happy this thread exists. Some of these rides are so cool! Makes me wonder which cars were left there with the driver inside...

    It would have been great to see this one integrated with the trail design.

    I saw this while riding on a bike path along the beach. I watched the owner collecting debris from the beach. It dragged its anchor in a storm and he could not get the engine started in time to save her. Very sad.
