    I love how when someone sees an abandoned rusty vehicle their first thought is "let's shoot the sh*t outta it! Yeah!" Every abandoned vehicle I've seen in person and most on here have many bullet holes in them. I actually used to shoot bb guns at one when I was a kid

    Love this thread.

    I'm from NH. Most of the parties I went to when I was in high school involved bonfires at remote "get here if you can" locations. Almost always involving alcohol, fire, guns, and four-wheelers/dirt bikes.

    Now I mountain bike by the same kinds of places.

    Awesome.

    Northwest Territories of Canada, a couple of hundred miles from the nearest gas station.

    These trucks and the associated fuel drums were abandoned in 1943 after being used in the construction of the Canol Road. I saw them during my 1984 bike tour there.

    This is along one of the local trails I frequent. Cars, I kind of understand. Boats, I just don't get it.


    Monster Mongoose! This truck didn't stand a chance. haha

    Ha! Saw this one this evening on a boring fire road climb in the 'burbs of El Dorado Hills, above Empire Ranch. I'm guessing some teenage dude was looking for a quiet, secluded place with a lake/city view to take his girl to "neck" one night and didn't see the drop off Or, it's stolen

    From Otis a few weeks ago, I've ridden there numerous times, but this was the first time I came across this car. Engine still intact and everything.

    We have a trail in Tally called the "Cadillac Trail" Guess why. I will not be home for another week or so, but I'll have to take some pictures when I do. Hope this thread will still be here.

    The real question is whether someone could make $$$ recycling the metal? At least the wrecks near roads. New business opportunity?

    This IS a pretty cool thread.

    When we were little kids the trails we used to go on had burned up and abandoned cars in the weirdest places. These days it's a park and all cleaned up.

    But here's one from a hunting trip in Ohio. It's next to a "road", but the road hasn't been used by anything but 4-wheelers for the last 20 years at least.




    Note that the rear wheels had been removed and replaced with sheaves - prob'ly to run a sawmill. This truck was born with a very specific purpose.

    ...and not one bullet hole!

    Don't have a pic but whenever I visit my parents the first ride I usually do with my Dad is what he calls the "Rambler Loop" in DuPont. I've always wanted to put a fake skeleton in the driver's seat.

    Definitely not shotgun. Rocks most likely.

    Is that on Otis ANG grounds? If it is, cars are the last thing you should be looking for! Unexploded ordinance (tank shells/bombs) are all over the place! My dad worked up there for a few years so I know a few of the trails...

    On my local trail there is an old '64 Chevy Impala that had slid off a fireroad and down a several hundred foot cliff... It's been there long before I found it. Probably some dudes giong into the woods to drink and got stuck.

    I'll get some pics of it tomorrow since I'll be riding up there!

    Ok well I got some pics of the '64 Impala on my local mountain...
    It's pretty hard to see since it's like 150ft down a rockslide and its all rusted away.

    Well here it is!

    ahh, I hate that I don't have pictures, but my bro and I plus friends used to ride an area between two roads that had power lines and a railroad line running through the middle during the 90's.........the is a major creek (Suwanee Creek) cutting across this area with a serious quicksand pit at the bottom of one hill - for a full month, every time we rode by, there was a new vehicle stuck over the wheels there........it became a running joke as to what we would see each time we rode - Jeeps of all sorts, all-wheel drives of every type, and even a motorcycle or two - whoever guessed right, the others bought him dinner and beer.........
