That's what they looked like after about fours years in the rustbelt.

Really?! No one has found something abandoned, retired, and/or rusty since last year?!

Been driving past these two for about 4 years. Finally talked to the guy, and bought 'em.





I'll probably only use the motor out of one of them, so if anyone is interested in some sweet rat rod parts...

He also has these two sittin in the field still.

If I had acreage, I could see the appeal in putting a 6BT in this with a dump bed.

Too lazy to post all the pictures.
Here is the album, I took all of these in one place. Not a junkyard.
Just some old guy who has a bunch of stuff and let me wander thru it for a few hours.

Wow, there's some nice junk in there!

I'd be trying to procure this one if it was anywhere near me:

Nice stuff. I want to put an SRT Hemi into this and make it a sleeper.

But a new modern Hemi would sure wake it up.

Those are west of Albany, NY.
I drove by and saw some of the old Power Wagons, didn't take long to turn around and go back.
The ones sleeping under the pine needles are clear in the back, I just saw a glimmer of chrome thru the trees and off I went.
Really amazing collection of stuff rotting away there. The old guy who owns it all is great, told me I could look all I wanted but don't open any doors, trunks or hoods if they were closed.
I can PM GPS info if anyone is interested.

Everything is for sale too.
There are 101 acres, don't stop by if you are in a hurry.
This is the view from the road.
