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.
A car that's been in the woods since before I was born! I'd really like to see a restored one that runs, and get the grand tour, See how the controls work everything. All I now is it's some kind of Renault possibly a 4cv from the research I've done.

Farmers used to push old cars down into the banks hoping to hold them in place. It was legal "back then" of course.The price of scrap steel was not much back then and this seemed a good use for them. Some of those cars were push by walls of water in big down pours, pushed down to the river. Others were put directly on the river bank to help stop the river encroaching any further onto a farmers river bottom ground as the river would always change its course through the years and sometime in a few hours...It was legal back then, of course not anymore. These cars and trucks have had more miles of river pass them than they have driven combined.
Old Arrow engine found abandoned in woods of Buna, Tx
We were told about this old antique stationary engine, when some people bought the land in Buna Texas. They only wanted the scrap weight for it. It actually weighs 1,400 pounds, but we gave them 100 dollars..
We thought at first it was an old natural gas operated oil field engine, and it was a Fairbanks- Morse engine, but we were wrong on all counts..
After a lot of research, we found it to be a C-46 Arrow engine, with a rare gasoline operated stationary engine, with a carb., and a factory fuel pump.. I don't think with the wood skids, and the gasoline operation, it was ever intended to run an oil field pumper jack..
We will get it running and show it on YouTube, should be interesting.
