    Great thread, there is an old corvair in Chapel Hill high school trails in NC, i haven't ridden there in years, i'll have to go back to take a picture of it. same thing, i've always wondered how on earth an old corvair could have made it back into the woods so far.

    everytime you see a really old car like this dumped in the trees... ask yourself how old the trees actually are. The car was probably there before the trees.... takes a lot of mystery out of some of the dump locations.

    There used to be about a dozen abandoned cars between Santos and the land bridge before the bridge was there. I have no idea how but most have been removed. There are only a couple left now.

    yeah but it also takes a lot of the fun out of it. i prefer imagining a crazy scenario involving a shoot out.

    I have seen some while snowmobiling in some way out areas, And wondered the same. We do some riding in Quebec where there are no roads in at all and have seen cars left out there. Like someone posted above the flying car.

    Heres an old Buick near Ringwood NJ and for kicks (NBR) an old Mustang from deeeep inside the earth in Monroe NY. The mustang must've been driven into a vent hole in an old mine to get to where it was.

    I think some of the older ones were just a handy dump spot, newer ones around here are often insurance "jobs".


    Am I up to five yet?

    The mustang in the mine... does that area ever experience severe flooding?

    Anyone who watched the news reports of the japanese tsunami last spring will recall all the boats and cars and everything carried WELL past where they started from.

    There are a few other cars at Fairland, that really make you wonder how they got there.

    Nah, no flooding like that around here. Just severe drinking I think. Probably came down a vent shaft like this one. Also another car further down but no telling what kind. Oh and there actually was a bike down there too!

    Top of Flagstaff Mt., above Folsom Lake.... with the snow capped Sierra in the way background Sactojesse reminds us that its a Fiat X1/9.
    This one was simply driven or dumped at the top of this mountain... just like a whole bunch of other garbage. But, it points you towards the best outlaw trail in the area

    Three cars in San Diego. The first two from Sycamore Canyon area were exposed because of fires. They are probably all overgrown again. The third foto is from Mission Trails park.

    A women I know did a whole body of work (photography) based around cars abandoned in Leanyer Swamp (Darwin)--a place I used to ride until I got sick of all the dog packs roaming around.
    Link here for anyone interested.

    Its about time you posted that one up Mr Beer
    I am searching for a pic of the same car but with an amusing twist

    I found a nice group of cars down in Bakersfield this week. I will take a camera out next time and get a few shots.

    From another angle -


    The amusing part is the DRIVER behind the wheel
