Abandoned Car – Racing Days Are Over.

I don’t know what it is about abandoned car, but they seem to grab my attention.  I can spot them “a mile away”.  Behind out-buildings, stashed in old barns or just sitting in a field somewhere.

Beside being a history buff (and a history teacher) I know a lot about the cars and their history, but a single car has is ‘personal’ history.  Where as it been, who owned it and how was it used?  I have a very bad inclination to immediately begin to assess an abandoned car’s potential. What could it be, again?

Not much mystery to what these cars were used for.  These were sitting out in the back area of a local race track.  Totally spent as race cars….OR….are…they?!?!?!!?


Clearly this one started out as a Camaro.

Lots of make-shift sheet metal but again a Camaro or Firebird .

Just a shell of what it used to be. But I bet it can be brought back to life.

Just need a seat!! Oh..and an engine, transmission and gauge need to be but back in place!!

Just need a little sanding and some clear coat! Right?

Got an abandon car pic you want to share?  Find me on Facebook and post it up.

Thanks for reading.
