Rusty old junk off of old Route 66, San Bernardino County CA USA, bleaching in the sun for who knows how long. Eventually, will be "centuries," I suspect. Could tell y'all where the "graveyard" is, but then I'd have to ..... well, nevermind LOL. Lot of stuff just out there in the desert, amazing what you'll find. Most God-forsaken, stark, utterly beautiful country imaginable.

Our out back neighbor is letting his truck get some "patina". We already tried to buy it, he's not selling. Occasionally drivers will stop along the road for a look or a photo.

It's surprising how sound the metal is under that patina, on those older vehicles.

Heck the old Ford F150 ext. cab is not bad either would be a great truck to use as a cheap work vehicle or camper special esp. if it has the 351 HO 4bbl Windsor V-8..


Kinda makes me want to find an old 6.9 IDI or 7.3 IDI F250HD or F350 for next to nothing and keep it around a s a 3rd vehicle and use it for DIY home depot runs or lending it out to help some friend or Co-worker move or fix up their place if needed

Heck an old IDI diesel Ford F-series PU truck would make a great tow vehicle if you had to drive out and planned on buying one of those older cars to restore as well as being a great truck to throw extra parts in the back from the local wrecks to restore it.
