    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.

    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?
