TOW Vehicles that 'Bit the Dust'- No Warranty

This was one of several automobiles encountered in the Red Desert of Wyoming. The doors were framed in wood and much of the metal appeared to be cut and not stamped. Very narrow frame, as it was about half as wide as my F350 Ford... but with more style.

Apparently over many decades parts were taken. It would have had a canvas top as snaps laying around.

Occasionally we run into Model A's pushed into ravines to hold back erosion in Wyoming and western Nebraska.

Looking under the hood in Nevada at an old mine site. The battery was dead...

Some Wyoming trailers that... well... needed more than some aluminum rivets.

A trailer used in the back country of Idaho. We smelled the bacon and stopped in just in case...

What have you a photo? Sorry if any of these were yours parked at the time.

I found a model T that looked like the first pic, abandoned long ago. There were enough pieces to build a car (less engine) and I restored and got it running over a period of 9 months.
