    This sits in VA on the side of Rt81 South, took the pic about 4-5 years ago, maybe it's gone.

  4. That '52 Ford pickup is the same year model that I am, and it looks better than I do. Looks like it was driven to where it sits and parked.

  6. Finally, after years of following and enjoying this thread, I can contribute.
    There's an abandoned garage not far from me and it's on a busy road. Everyone knows it and have been watching it slowly being consumed by Mother Nature over the last 40 years or so. Well, today on the hunch that there might be more to find, me and my son came up trumps.

    Interesting addition to the front of the frame rails. Any guesses as to extension or crash repair?

    The body on this little Falcon looks like it is still in pretty nice shape. This would be a fun car to bring back from the dead.

    I thought so too, so I bought it. Outside of some floor pan work, it's very solid, and an original V8 car. Tri-Y headers, 4100 carb, and all the trim missing are in the trunk, along with 4 grilles. It was last run with a 351 4spd back in early 70s 20170225_113705.jpg

  24. It looks like someone dismembered it and left it to die in the woods.

    Well, that's one way to hold up the shelves, I guess.

    Hopefully it was cannibalized for the greater good. For now, it's out of the weather....
