The Petersen Crew Takes a Ride in The Wildest Hot Rod You've Ever Seen!
The parking structure at The Petersen Automotive Museum always has really
interesting cars show up, including this wild horseless carriage based on a
real Studebaker carriage. The entire drive train is located forward of the
pivot point. The middle wheels are the drive wheels. Throttle, brake, and
steering controls are all hydraulic. The pivot is a ball joint on a tubular
control arm with a coil-over shock!
Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The
junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over
the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given
special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed
with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be
done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore.
Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.
