In The Old Orchard (WAB6287) by WayneBenedet In The Old Orchard (WAB6287) by WayneBenedet
Some years ago I came across this property where there was an old 27 ford.  I decided to go back and take another look at her.  When I got there, the ford was gone, but this pontiac was there. I do not recall it being there on my previous visit (of some to years ago).  Perhaps though it was there, and just in good shape... so I ignored it.

Maybe the Ford hooked up with a GMC and had a baby Pontiac. :faint:  Well it might happen in the Twilight Zone!

lol... you never know.  this particular place is not easy to get to, so while I drive by it from time too time, I don't make the trek into it.  Maybe in 8 years or so I will try again.

OMG! Yes! This car needs to be restored!
Because we need to keep the classics alive. 😍

I agree.  But I don't think they can all be saved.  At the same time.... I see parts for another restoration.

Yeah, I know. Not all or every classic car is saved. A few of them must remain abandoned or just forgotten.

Yeah. Also, I heard that there is a a place where peoples left the old cars in one place. Idk what's the name of this name, but it's more like "Paradise of Classic or retro cars."
I also found the video.

Yes, I am aware of this place in europe.  After the war, the soldiers from over seas just left this vehicles and went home.

I think it's important to document places like this. They are like oases of thoughts and dreams past.
