Default Swamp find in washington! (lots of pictures)

well my buddy started working out of a new shop for a guy he hooked up with...out behind the shop we saw a couple old cars peeking through the brush.

upon further investigation (machete's and rubber boots trudging through a swamp) we discovered around 25-30 cars..I forget the exact number. Apparently they have been sitting for 30-40 years, and it shows unfortunately.

some of the cars...

63 riviera
two 1961 2dr hrt top caddy's
1957 cadillac (fleetwood?
1929 A truck
64 or 65 GTO
348 or 409 mounted on the back of a 40's military truck
65 belair
63 belair
64-65? wildcat
40's? powerwagon
55-57? GMC suburban
42-47? ford truck
two late 40's chevy 2 dr's
mid 50's ford F1
mid 60's pontiac four door
1959 oldsmobile 4 dr flat-top
some crazy early 20's or late teens complete frame with wood spoke wheels (S on centercap? studebaker?)
some front end (one of the last few pics..in red with a fine bar grill)
tons of early suspension parts...I beams, wishbones, leaf springs, spindles, drag links, etc...

We will be pulling a bunch of parts out for ourselves, but then we will pull out parts for others if there are particular things of interest. It will be almost impossible to extract whole cars due to the access...or lack there-of


here are some pictures, please help me identify the vehicles which I did not date accurately.

Save those 28-29 Pickup doors. That S hubcap is on a Studebaker.

Looks like they need some goats or sheep to eat those vines down! The power wagons are cool!

The Hubcap with the S and wood spoked wheels is for a 1930's Studebaker.
My 1930 Studebaker/Erskine has the same type.
