The old Power Wagon was sitting on the side of US 129/TN 115 in pretty plain sight not far from Deal's Gap, so lots of people saw it. In fact, the truck is visible on Google Maps' satellite image of the area.

In this link, look at the brown smudge at the lower left corner of the long building. I'm pretty sure that's it.

Pinzgauer

I have no idea how I stumbled upon this, but a cool project for someone.

http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/1613222006.html

1972 Pinzgauer; $7K. Non running but turns over and sounds as it's all there (as well as some rust).

Fuck Pinzgauers. Those things suck. Buy American. Or get a Unimog. Or something. Anything else.

I was refering to the fact that he started to talk about it after taking a photo, and it was gone.

That picture I posted was two years old so I am sure it was sometime between then and my posting it here that it was removed. I have not been that way since so I did not know the status of the old truck. Hopefully it went to someone to restore it but even in its sad state I thought it made for a good picture. I enjoyed looking at it even if it was a bit heart breaking.

I found a picture of my old 1967 International Travelall - it was something I thought I needed at the time (1976) and I soon found out that it had a prodigious appetite for gasoline (probably the worst fuel mileage of any vehicle I've ever owned). Eight mpg was not unusual but the A/C would turn you blue on a hot Georgia day. This one had the big truck 5-speed transmission that weighed almost 300 lbs - I found that interesting fact out when I replaced the clutch.



That's my 1967 Series IIA Land Rover pickup in the background - I still have that.

I know where there is (or was) an abandoned Travelall in northern CA, up by Shasta.

I had a 1974 Travelall in 1990/1991. Same big truck 5-speed. Loved that thing, but it needed a restoration that I couldn't afford, so I sold it...

It splashed around in the mud pritty good.
He still has it but he also has a house, a wife and 5 kids now so it has not been started in many years.
