    Remember all the crap by the German Shepard guy who was encroaching on the rail trail? His own private junk yard, he once told me I couldn't 'ride my bike there. I rode away and he grabbed the back of my bike, big mistake on his part, lets just say the rest is history... LOL
    Yes...i do remember his house....never met the owner.....still ride by there often.....german shepards are gone....he may be also.....but that old MGB GT is there.....used to be a really classic Chevy El Camino there too...but he or someone actually restored that one over a couple of years.....
    There are two paths you can go by but in the long run........

    No idea how it got there or why it's been painted, but it's a neat sight on the ride. When the trail ain't washed-out that is!

    Here are a few of the abandoned vehicles I've run across (and photographed) in southeast MA over the past few years. It’s too bad that the “school bus graveyard” was removed; there were thirteen gutted old busses out in the middle of the woods which made for a great destination on rides with students.

    This one was simply driven or dumped at the top of this mountain... just like a whole bunch of other garbage. But, it points you towards the best outlaw trail in the area
    Here's one on the other fork of the American. In fact the trail was named after it "dead truck". Tough to see because it's a little ways down the hill from the trail, but it's there if you squint.

    Found another pic

    I was rummaging through some pics and found this. It was at the top of Dump Truck Climb. Its no longer there. TN Gas Co came through widening a gas line and when they were gone so was the Dump Truck. This is in Jungle Habitat in West Milford, NJ

    Graham Hills (Pleasantville, NY)

    Snapped off a few more today during a ride with my brother at Graham Hills. The last one is kind of interesting. Looks like some sort of home-made go cart. Probably quite the machine when it ran.

    Where I grew up there are many Finnlanders and homemade tractors and utility vehicles were called "JOKERI" pronounced "Yooukeri", as one would say upon seeing these.... "you've got to be kidding!" or "what a joke!"
    Most of these were body stripped cars and trucks but some were heavily modified.... this one looks to be a complete frame up rig.

    I think I know that one!

    When I was at Michigan Tech during college, there was an area, probably an old gravel pit, with a cable/bucket backhoe, a dump truck, and some old car. But ala, that was in the days before digital cameras.

    One of the best threads I have seen here.

    No joke, this thread has inspired me to ditch the regular trails I normally ride and go out and explore more!

    A BIG boy!

    This old cable operated D8 is at the intersection of the Cache Creek trail and the Road Kill Valley road. Would you believe that someone took the plow blade in the last year!! At least a couple of tons.

    I almost forgot about this one despite having ridden by it hundreds of times. It is an old bulldozer that looks like it has been there for 40 years. Someone recently started taking parts off so my guess is it is in the process of being scrapped. Good luck to whoever is trying to carry this out of the woods (located in southeastern Massachusetts).

    What's left of a VW Beetle in a heavily wooded area near a stream. This spot is downstream from a low spot on a nearby road. I'm guessing someone drove into the water when the road was flooded and the car was carried off into the woods.

    Explored an off-the-beaten path valley near my suburbian life and came across the most shot up remains of a vehicle I've seen in a long time, as well as a boat. When I walked near the boat, about a 300 tiny frogs hopped like crazy to avoid me.
