    If I were you I would take it as I need one more bike for commuting.

    Converted to narrow gauge

    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.

    Here's another...up on "Stag Hill" in Mahwah, NJ...

    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?
