something about old cars in the woods. beyond rat rod but still interesting
I have no idea what the story is behind this one. It's on one of the snowmobile routes in my area
Too many years ago my then teenage pals and I found this 67 bug in rolling condition and dragged it to the top of the power line hill it rests on. It made two runs as coaster car before tearing a tie rod end off

Well remember, much of the trails we ride on today might not always have been just singletrack or double track. Many are along old farm roads, logging roads, fire service roads, etc. Plus the reason for washing machines is to avoid dump service fees at the local landfills. Many towns put limits on curbside trash collection, and if you try and take a washing machine to the landfill yourself they charge you a price to do it, so that's why you end up with stuff dumped in the woods.

here's a car I found on a trail in Northern California. In the Shasta County area. Seems to me anyways to be a 30-40's chevy and it had a shovel on the front. atleast it looks like one to me in the picture.
...great idea.....will search my pictures for a few to post up.....I agree with one of the posters that alot of the single tracks we ride today were formally farm , logging, hunting camp roads......now grown in into trails...so some cars get stuck out there....some are stolen cars for sure.....when i was a kid a friend in the neighborhood took his older brothers car and hid it in the woods for us to drive....a Morris Minor....we had fun for about 6 months and then it broke down....well we next used it for target practice....you get the idea.....not much of it left after 30 years.....
There are two paths you can go by but in the long run........
Have seen MANY abandon cars along my local trails but here where im stationed in AL buddy of mine & myself find all kinds of old Military stuff back in the woods hiking/biking. mostly abandon training sites with random stuff left behind, but the coolest thing to date was an abandon chopper fuselage. ill dig up the photos and post them up later.
