    This one is cool but there's no mystery to it since the farm field ends about 20 feet away. I also like the one in the ravine off of Newman's Ln in Chimney Rock. That looks like an old school DUI, the kind where you got a $200 ticket and a ride home. That's if anyone actually survived that crash...

    An Impala that is definitely not. More like a 1950's ride.

    Another one, near Folsom Lake. Kinda sketchy place to ride... private property and lots of abandoned vehicles. I didn't feel comfy stopping to snap photos of the other wrecks.

    They arent they any more but about 10 years ago when I first started riding, my uncle and I went out to what are now really nice manacured mt bike only trails. They used to be just riding paths cut through random trees out by the lake. There was an old 80's raised top conversion van that had obviously been seriously wrecked in the front end. Someone had taken an old toilet and set it in the back of the van along with a roll of tp. I was never brave enough to use its services but it was definately a conversation piece.


    OT (Sorta): Not a mountain bike trail. But a few years ago a friend and I were unloading my boat into the lake off the boat ramp. I was backing my truck down the ramp as he guided me from inside the boat, the next thing I know hes yelling stop and theres an EXTREMELY loud scraping noise (metal against metal). I stop and pull back up the ramp and get out. We look just off the drop off of the boat ramp to see a reflection. We called the park rangers, they called a tow truck. We stayed long enough to see the tow truck pull the car out of the water, a recently dumped 1998 Mustang Cobra Mystic. The tow truck driver said the vin number came up as stolen and involved in an armed robbery.

    There's a whole bunch of old cars in The Landlocked Forest in Burlington, MA. Can anyone identify this one?



    There used to be a ton of them in Big River, RI, some covered in animal bones, along with an old motorcycle and an abandoned snowmobile. Unfortunately they got 'cleaned up'.

    Oh, and by the way, anyone ever heard of the actor Brad Pitt? He and I bike together sometimes and that's him in the above pic checking out the car. Nice job, Brad.

    Cool thread. When I was a kid (mid 1980's) my friends and I would find older abandoned cars all the time in the area trails. One of my friend's neighbour was a cop, and one time we wrote down a license plate number and a few VIN's that we found and had him check them out. Every single one was reported stolen many years earlier (like, 10-20 years). So, I assume that they were all taken by joyriding kids who took them out for some fun and left them wherever they ended up getting stuck.
