    This old truck was used to haul tourists on the abandoned, Gold Rush era Wildgoose RR, back in the 50s.

    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....

    Pardon the crap photo. My iPhone hasn't been taking the greatest photos lately. Think this is whats left of a Gremlin in the Vortex section at Santos. Not much left of it...my guess is based on the shape of what is left of the rear quarter panel.

    Aside from the bullet holes in so many of these abandoned vehicles, I've just realized that 95% of them have had the engines "plucked". Hmmm?

    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.

    I watched the trailer from the link you provided but no footage of the last scene. It looks like a good movie but I don't think I will be renting it any time soon. Do you know of a way I could watch the last seen without renting the movie. If not please explain why I need to see it.

    I don't want to spoil the story, but just in case you never see the movie (which I think is a very bad idea) here is the best picture of the last scene I could find.

    Don't worry I don't forsee any Mexico trips in today's world. It's a dangerous place these day's. I find it funny all this movie talk was sparked from my above post of my Mexico experience. :thumbsup:

    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)
