We came across this old school bus close to our property, and the land owner said we could have it and the contents.. It turned out to be a bigger job than we thought, as it took us all day to blaze a road and uncover the vines and tree roots that had grown into it.. We'll have to come back later to get it with bigger equipment.
1960- Madill 009 -A mystery of history
My longest video yet,decided to keep it as one part.A 1960 Madill steel
tower that is innaccesable by road.Has a cummins engine in it.The 'Still
1937 Chevy School Bus / Motor Home...part 2
We're putting the mid 1980's Chevrolet 1 ton dually (cab & chassis) front
end under the bus.. We were able to lower the front end by almost 6 inches
by cutting the original frame out and adding the thick boxed channel iron
on top of it.. It was WAY cheaper than buying the dropped spindles kit and
shorter coil springs.. If we had used the other frame rails from the Frito
truck, we would have had the same problem with the bus sitting too high in
the front.. We kept the steering box, torsion bar, everything in the exact
position it was in, under the stock Chevrolet truck.. So there should be no
problem with bump steer or anything..
Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in
probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug
wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but
couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before
shooting the vid!
Old cars in the woods
My dad and I went to a place in south western Virginia and found this place
, it had old cars , old farm equipment , an old house full of antiques ,
and the like , just out in the middle of the woods , the guy that let us on
the property said it was his home place , some of the cars had been there
the better part of 40-50 years..
Old bus graveyard (part 2)
A friend of mine found a collection of school buses that had been used for
storage near where he lives, I'm going to try and see if maybe they may be
interested in selling some of them to me. There are some going back to the
late 40's or early 50's. For some reason all of the buses had the tires and
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.
The Old Truck Runs Again!
Please stop by and give us a "like!" - http://www.JohnsOldTruck.com
I've been in love with this 1949 Chevy 3100 for over 30 years. It used to
belong to my brother, but as often happens life gets in the way and it sat
in his garage until he needed the space and we made a deal in 2004.
Thanks Brian & Jim! Your help means more than you know...
And thanks to all for watching and sharing!
