Parked and forgotten
"They've been there all my life," Kennett said. "I've never talked to the owners but I'm guessing that the family was into logging, way back when they were cutting down huge trees there." Several complete body shells on frames are scattered beyond the barbed wire fence along Mosquito Lake Road in Deming, Washington. Heavy duty vehicles, including what may be a 1921 Schacht 5-ton truck (top photo), appear to have been parked and forgotten. Most wear period-correct rims and tires. Who knows how many project cars could be started with these mostly complete chassis? How about a parts run for your next rat rod?

Keep the photos coming
Kennett, no stranger to old cars, has spotted many would-be dream cars on his travels into California and Canada. He didn't have to go far to find these. Sometimes the most interesting finds are in your own backyard.
