Hello! I'm new to this community. =]

We've got so many broken vehicles at my house, it's not even funny. But oh well, I guess that's what you get when your older brother is a mechanic. =P

These pictures were taken April 24th, at my house in southwestern West Virginia.

2:32 pm - Winslow Junction

lostinjersey
Winslow Junction was once part of a very important railline, serving southern NJ and the corrider into Philadelphia. About 30 years ago the two main rail lines in the area were abandoned by the rail companies. These trains are NOT abandoned, though they look it. When I stopped by there were a half dozen guys around working on, in, and around these rusting monsters.

(I x-posted this a few places, so I apologize for anything that may not directly relate to the topic of the community)



My husband met a guy while working one day, who mentioned he had about 200 cars. A junkyard, though he wouldn't ever call it such. He told us to come on down and have a look. Me, being the car-whore I am, jumped right on that.

We made an hour drive out into a small town called "Bumpass". Yes, that's it's name. I tried to get a picture of the sign as proof, but David wasn't willing to slow down enough for me to snap one. I'm used to such names by now, but many of my e-friends are city folk who think such names are only something you see in movies. Heh, not so!

After turning down countless dirt roads, we finally find the guy's driveway; a half-mile of sand and gully-washes that made me glad we were driving our beater and not something we were very attached to. I winced as we bottomed out about 5 times.

We round the bend and are greeted by a double-wide absolutely surrounded by cars. It took us numerous tries to get through and around all the vehicles so we could reach the front door. The house itself was missing screens and junk was literally falling out of the windows. And there were cats. Many, many cats. David climbed the rickety steps and knocked and Junior opens the door.

He immediately apologizes for the state of the place, telling us he has 6 kids and his wife isn't much into cleaning. "She reckons cleaning is throwing shit in the yard" he says. I reckon she does too after almost tripping over a pile of VHS tapes laying in the grass.

We then proceed to wander his property looking at his most valuable posessions; the cars. He tells us he buys cars and drives them until the inspections run out, then buys more. None of his cars are junk, they're all projects or parts cars. "It ran when I parked it" was heard many, many times.

Now, I realize to most people these look like junk, but the man has a treasure trove of vehicles rotting on his property. He could make a mint selling these on ebay...or to ME. I found myself weak in the knees more than a few times as I happened upon a wonderful project that will no doubt stay just where it's at until it's too far gone to be of any use.

The cars..Collapse )

3:19 pm - abandoned boats

lostinjersey
you can see this from the turnpike before the toll plaza at 16W. on the NJ Turnpike. I've seen it for years and finally headed over there. it's behind a golf course and a PES&G fueling station. I asked the golf course owner for permission to go there and they said no problem. I had to walk out on the golf range but there was only one guy taking swings and I warned him to let me get to the end and he was cool. The place

the place has been around since the 1930's and is now used by a bunch of fisherman to store their boats, both the working and the non working. since are seriously f'd up.

here's a few of the boats

10:24 pm - community spam (but its my community so its ok!)

I created the community famousheadstone which is specifically for the final resting spot of famous people. I figured some of you guys are into cemetery hunting, so I thought I'd mention it to you.

Found this old barn on what is now some sort of public park land property. Wonder how old the tractor is?

7:55 am - my website

lostinjersey
I figured I'd do a little self promotion here and let you all know about my own website, Lostinjersey about all things, weird, abandoned and strange in NJ. Specifically you'll probably like the vehicle decay section. I jsut revamped my site completely, fixewd all the photos and links, added new stuff, but especially of interest to you, (I'm hoping anyway) is the abandoned jet page. I added a slew of new photos, and there's a raging debate over what kind of jet this is...



there's about a half dozen jet nuts telling me its an f89 scorpion or a t-33 trainer or a f101. I dont know if theres any airplane buffs in here, but maybe you'd like to add to the debate?
