    I've been riding past this for 22 years, and finally had a reason to take a picture! It's a little more weathered now than when I first saw it (as am I), but overall it's pretty much the same. This is Rose Canyon, San Diego, just east of the 805 and below the nursery.

    Should also post this in the "Does your bike fit in the back of your car" thread in Car and Biker.

    Don't know how the hell this car could get back here...very far away from anything. The woods were pretty thick, this is actually as far back as I could get while still getting a clear picture.

    This one may be in this thread already somewhere, but I just found it myself so I thought I would post it. This is just off the trail head parking lot for the McKenzie River Trail in Oregon. I just rode it for the first time last week (truly epic!), and thought this was a cool way to start, by seeing this thing. It is a Ford pickup of some kind, that is fused in the rock and dirt. I would love to know the story about it though.

    Not that it matters, but Nomads were 2-door wagons, that one had 4 judging by the size of the opening and the door post that's still there.

    That's only true for the tri-five nomads. After that they came in 4 door flavor.

    OK, no surprise they would've glommed onto the popularity of the Nomad name and watered it down, it's the way Detroit has always worked

    I haven't figured out what year the one in the photo is. The taillight area looks 53 or 54.

    It certainly looks like its from the 50's but it's hard to tell with a blurry picture on my phone lol. Maybe the OP can snap a cleaner pic next time he rides that trail!

    A lot of times, cars end up in these strange places due to flash floods. People try to cross a low water crossing and get swept away...car was never insured so why bother?

    There used to be two old wrecked cars in the woods near my neighborhood in Fairfax VA. It appeared that one of them had bullet holes in it. Also, the parts to these cars are scattered about as if they exploded. As legend has it belonged to a bank robber who tried to drive the car through the woods in a pursuit and then crashed it. I call BS on that but still an interesting thing to think about Even weirder was this massive barrel thing nearby that I think was used to brew alcohol. Maybe some illegal moonshine production was going on back there a while ago

    That is bizarre. It kind of looks like a boat, and yet it's.... not. Stage prop of some kind?

    Here's a rusty old Plymouth I came across "in the bog". This one was a little bit off the beaten track, but I caught a glimpse of it and did a little bushwhacking to go take a pic. Complete with bullet holes!

    Willowdale State Forest, in Ipswich MA. For some reason, this trail is named Chevette.

    Cool thread!

    The one without snow is a 1949 Chevy Fastback in Thacher Park, NY. The one with the snow is near Troy NY.

    Abandoned vehicle???

    This was a new one for me. I passed this on the fireroad heading into Stewart State Forest. I thought it was odd that no rider was around. 3 hours later, I'm leaving, and the bike is still there. So, I guess it was abandoned...for a flat tire. Pretty much a POS, but I can't imagine not just walking the bike out with me.

    Two more from MA

    I found these while biking in Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest a couple weeks ago. It must have been a fun ride getting the Jeep to where I found it.

    Most likely a stolen Jeep and a pretty new one at that!

    Pretty sure it was not stolen. I followed the trail it made on its journey back to a campfire that had lots of empties all around it. I think the "fishermen" (there were fishing poles in the Jeep) tried to take a shortcut to the lake. Next time I'm there, I'll look to see if it was really abandoned.

    Went by this old pick-up off Grouse Ridge in the Tahoe Nat. Forest. He got down to a place long ago that he couldn't get out of.

    Not sure if it's abandoned. The tree has been removed. Only time will tell (Jimmy Buffett reference).

    I can't help but imagine some "dark story" behind why these cars are abandoned in these places.
    Gives me the willies to think about actually.

    EDIT: Curious, do any of you look inside these abandoned cars?
