    I used to be big into the 4x4 community and we would find vehicles all the time.. the newer looking ones we would report to state police.. All of them were either stolen or insurance scams....

    I'll start taking pics of the ones I find for yall.

    that top one has a story behind it.....
    It was a chopped hulk that was purposfully left by the state forest service roughly around 1980. It was part of their "Interperative hiking trail" that was set up to promote the forest back when the ranger station was something more than just rubble and foundations. It's purpose was the highlight the rampant use of the forest as a chop shop BITD. It was acutally contriversial amoung those who built the trail. The forest chief at the time for some stupid reason thought it was a good idea while my grandmother, who as a ranger at the time ran the youth conservation corp. and built most of the origional single track out there, thought it was just plain stupid. She continued to ***** about it for the next 20+ years. It used to make me smirk every time I rode by it. It was supposed to be removed in the late 90's but just got pushed to the side a little. As for the newer jeep, there are still a few cars dumped out there every summer. My all time favorite was a honda CRX that was dumped about 20 yards from the old wreck with a club still on the steering wheel. Ah the memories....

    When I lived in San Diego we used to hit Mexico once in awhile. There is a spot along the coast between Tijuana and Ensenada, that there was a cliff that dropped on to the beach below. The drop was probably close to a 1000'. You could see tire tracks at the top that led to the drop. As you walk up carefully to the cliff and peer down you would see numerous dumped vehicles. They were hidden from any other vantage point other than walking up and looking down. Had they erased the tire marks you would never think about looking down there.This was back in the early nineties and there was 20 or more cars down there. All stolen I'm sure and probably from america, they were so far away it was hard to make out make and model. And I couldn't see plates on any of them. Definitely a pretty creepy sight and one I will always wonder what the true story was.

    A place not far from my house is kinda eerie, abandoned wrecked cabin next to a rotted out oldsmobile delta 88 and a 58ish ford pickup. This is way back in the middle of nowhere, how that oldsmobile made it back there is beyond my guess. Just up the trail from there is a beautiful view looking off across this canyon, I can post a pic of it if you guys want me to.

    As a long time mountain biker and classic car lover, this is a fantastic thread. Some of the cars in this thread believe it or not are worth a few bucks. I noticed 2 cars that could make someone some money. If I can get to my local trail in the next week or so, I'll have a contribution.

    There are diffenately a few cars and car parts for sure worth some bucks. There is a plymouth grille that is worth at least $500 and some V8 emblems that are $250 each.

    The old pull grader from page 5 is a John Deere road grader/maintainer from the early 20s. My grandpa bought one,had it rebuilt and repainted and it is now in front of our shop as a historic display.

    The D8 on page 6 is a cat d8 from the early 60s, if it was running and cleaned up they regularly sell for 18-20k. And if the pony motor is there(its on the other side) just the block is worth $1500.

    I hadn't gone with any intention of getting any pix, so I'm holding my phone as still as I can. This wreck is probably from the '30's(?) and is probably familiar to those who frequently hike the Buckeye Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Brecksville and Snowville Rd. To say it's been there awhile is an understatement.
    No bikes allowed. (yet)

    Salvaging boats off the beach like that is expensive. They are probably waiting on their insurance companies to step up. They may also not be seaworthy after being beaten up and running aground during the storm. Being here in Florida for some bad storms, I've seen enough of this. Sometimes its a daunting task just to locate the owner, or for the owner to locate his boat.

    I've been going through a ton of old pics and discovered a few I haven't posted before.

    The first one is not that old, but I liked it because it is a Mercury Montego wagon (early 70's). This big old boat is what my first car was. Paid $200.

    Any body know what the last one is? I don't. Found on Ringwood-Ramapo trail near Shepherd's Pond - if that helps.

    awesome montego. you can see the kinship with the starsky and hutch-mobile.
    then, no idea. thought it might be a capri, but the c-pillar base has a 50's look.
    next, a 30's school bus. love that old grille.
    last one, is, i think, a ransacked one of these

    i may be wrong, and it might just be some kind of paving equipment. it's obviously an implement of some kind, but doesn't look suited to a field.

    I added another pic on the Montego. Starsky and Hutch didn't have the rear jumpseat like the Montego did!!! :D

    As for this thing that might be a tank, I haven't been on this trail in a long time. Now I'm gonna have to find my way back there sometime for a closer look. If/when that happens...I'll add more pics. Its not too far from a recreation area, so it could be an abandoned paver of some kind.

    Nome AK aircraft and gold mining history
    Dredge # 3, a large bucketline dredge, last operated in the 30s. I suppose you can call it a vehicle, a barge, that traveled under it's own power with cables and winches, moving it's pond as it went. The twin engine aircraft is one of two of this type abandoned in Nome. I know nothing about them, but suspect they were used to carry passengers and freight in the 40s and 50s.

    Ran across these pix in my collection this evening. Both vehicles were recently abandoned.

    We ran into the guy who had abandoned the Jeep pickup as he was hiking about three miles down the trail. Apparently the previous night had involved some drunk 4-wheeling on an unfamiliar road.

    The skid marks were still fresh and the radio still playing in the Ranger pickup when we came upon it, but a 30 minute search turned up no occupant, so he must have thumbed into town.

    I viewed all 12 pages and there are a couple missing with national recognition. I have photos of my bike and friends with the first listed below on my hard drive but would have to do some digging.

    1. MOAB, UT. Kokopeli entrance to Porcupine Rim. Photo Op #1, there is an old beat down Model T. I've ridden Porc Rim a couple times a year, every year since '05. Each time, that beater is being photographed by like minded mtbr's.

    2. Alaska. Don't know this exact location but there was a thread on MTBR some years back about guys who journeyed up to the spot using rafts and Pugsleys. The bus from Into The Wild.

    In reference to my earlier post and some follow-up guesses that this might be a tank. Here are 4 fresh pictures (of each side). I guess my only reason for being skeptical is the yellow paint. Who in the heck paints a tank school bus yellow? Anyway...here you go...

    So I was going to come clean and say, oh, huffster, i was just joshing with you, of course that isn't a tank, it's just some kind of paving equipment. But then, look at all those photos, and then watch Saving Private Ryan. It looks like an amphibious landing craft, albeit fairly small. That ramp is made to drop down so people can jump out, and close up when it is imitating a boat. As far as being yellow, yeah, that is weird. Maybe some kind of tourist company bought it and rode people around in it? Or it was used at a base for training exercises?

    That other thing is a conveyor belt.

    A lot of very cool pictures, who'd of thought that junk could be art !? LOL. Cool to see the Chevy from Millstone Quarry show up a few times....we've all pissed there before !

    I am shocked NOT to see the Wise Potato Chip aluminum Grumman box truck complete with the Wise "OWL" still in tact from Exeter, NH not on here !? Next time I'm out there, it is a classic !!

    Because it was easier to cut than the lock was

    It was likely bought by a tour-ride operator offering amphibious rides around the lake, and was painted yellow as a result.

    Abandoned when it stopped working and was cut up for steel scrap.

    A similar example is the GMC Duck (DUKW)

    In WW2


    converted to an amphibious tour ride



    That's my guess.

    That's the frame of a conveyor belt system. The rubber belt has probably rotted away and all is left is the frame, rollers etc.

    That does seem to be the most likely reason. :thumbsup:

    This is an amazing thread. If I ever find myself on a trail which has abandoned vehicles I will surely add to it. Otherwise, I'll continue to enjoy what's already been posted.
