    It doesn't quite look abandoned on a trail...

    Some more I've come across of late:

    Folsom, CA (maybe Orangevale)... no idea how this vehicle could have EVER gotten where it is..

    El Dorado NF near Sly Park... an old VW Bug?

    It's a real mystery why so many abandoned vehicles are upside down.

    When I got up close and saw the paint job, I kind of figured it was probably used that way and then a little joy ride into the woods to its final resting place.

    Far easier to remove suspension and driveline parts when the vehicle is upside down.... I would not take a chance to jack it up out in the wild, no level ground!

    It's on private property so I shouldn't say exactly, but it's in central lower Michigan...it's in rougher condition than it looks in the pic! But I agree that if I were the owner I'd do something with it, part it out, or something.

    I thought this one had been posted before, but I don't see it.

    Graham Hills, Pleasantville, NY. I understand it used to be much further down hill and a "rescue" effort was undertaken to drag it uphill and prop it up.

    Rode past this one ......

    .....probably 5 or 6 times since June........out hiking the trail and doing some light trail clean up and saw this just 15 feet off the trail at Marble Hill in Stow. What a difference a few months some wind and rain and what happens to all the leaves makes on visibility. Ford Falcon.....engine was gone.

    Oops! Dude went the wrong way. The trail I was riding on was an old truck trail but is so eroded and over grown that whoever was driving this jeep is a major dumbass. (Sent from my phone and can't flip the pic)

    ya, ya, you are right. good eye. that thing at the bottom center is the distributor. the metal plate on the side of the block covers the cam and the pushrods. the distributor is on the same shaft as the oil pump, and that somewhat vertical shaft is turned by a gear on the horizontal cam shaft. all those thingys on top are rocker arms. they open the valves.

    Sometimes the cement truck gets stuck... permanently. This is near Folsom Lake, and not in an area that is easy for a cement truck to get in or out of.

    Got a new one today... this guy had to have been placed here due to raging waters. No other explanation. Spotted off the American River near Auburn. No roads nearby. Ford? Chevy?

    It looks like a 56 Chevy, but it's hard to tell for sure without seeing a picture from a different angle.

    Thats a 1964-1966 Chevy/GMC truck cab. It looks like it's seen better days!

    The running light housing isn't right for a '56 chevy (the one that looked like a ford). I'm thinking 56 Ford:

    I'm so happy this thread exists. Some of these rides are so cool! Makes me wonder which cars were left there with the driver inside...

    I saw this while riding on a bike path along the beach. I watched the owner collecting debris from the beach. It dragged its anchor in a storm and he could not get the engine started in time to save her. Very sad.

    Wow, this is my favorite thing, finding old wrecked vehicles. I have tons of pictures of old wrecked cars and farm equipment, I'll post a couple favorites.


    This is in one of my favorite places in upstate NY, someone might recognize it? If the Nature Conservancy ever removes this truck I will be really upset!


    Have to apologize for the poor quality of this one, took it a few years ago with a crummy phone. I had stumbled upon a whole graveyard of wrecks behind an old farm a few miles from my house, several years ago when I rode along a powerline that had been bulldozed clear for maintenance trucks to access. This 50's Chevy panel van was one of the more intact ones, along with the similar vintage Chevy dump truck next to it. I'll have to go back again in the fall with a real camera.

    There's a couple on my local trail system, Water Dog Lake Park.

    This is a truck buried in the trail, with incorporated bridge:

    This is an old english car, not sure what kind. I only know it's english because the headlights say Lucas Electric.

    The Abandoned Vehicle Thread-img_20140608_161614_942.jpg

    And this one was from this Sunday, it's a 90's Cavalier exactly like my sister's ugly green one, except in much worse shape, and upside down, and with a big chunk kinda ripped off because I was dragging it around with my Jeep a few years ago.

    Old old truck buried way in ground on the trails I ride in Kansas. Engine block still in it. Some wanna be hoodlums decided to make it their canvas recently.
